Unfortunately following the events in the capital the last few nights, the highly anticipated Rizlab Jamie xx gig has had to be postponed until a later date. I’ll be in touch with the competition winners once they have worked out when they can reschedule the event. Below is the official announcement from Rizla.
RizLab announcement: 10am Wednesday 10th August 2011
Due to the unforeseen protests & disruption in London over the past few days, the Jamie xx + Quayola performance of ‘Structures’ in Shoreditch on Thursday night has to be postponed.
This is by police request – it’s unavoidable, but for the best.
In the meantime, we’ll be working with everyone involved to reschedule the event.
Competition winners … Your tickets remain valid.

For the first ever RizLab project, Jamie xx has chosen to work with world-renowned visual artist Quayola for a project entitled ‘Structures’. RizLab is a project created to allow credible, pioneering artists to freely experiment and embrace their personal passions.
Next Thursday 11th August, Jamie xx will be playing an extended four-hour set live at The Classic Car Club, London EC1, that will premiere new material from his forthcoming EP. At the same time, Quayola will be performing live in real-time alongside him to create a visual feast on two huge screens in full HD.
