“Grand Theft Audio is the launch of a campaign to ‘take back the music’, brought to you by a trio of well known venues – one a legitimate venue forced underground, an underground venue gone legit, and the first ever legitimate, underground venue. Between them, The Silver Bullet, Passing Clouds and Hive Dalston have a lot of contacts; we’re using them to bring together some of the amazing people who live, work and play in London’s music scene.”
The Hive is an evolution of the free social centre, intelligently reusing empty buildings and wasted resources to create an independent environmental and cultural social space.
We host cultural and political events, facilitate workshops, hold seminars and meetings, film screenings, art exhibitions and run campaigns on major social issues. The Hive is a venue, a social project and a solutions building. We are not-for-profit and voluntary.

Changing the Law:
We’ve launched our 38 Degrees campaign for the introduction of the ‘Respace classification’ into modern planning law. This new flexible and pragmatic classification will encourage the easy and sensible use of empty buildings for measurable social good.
