In the last few years, Grime music has increased in popularity in mainstream media, appearing in unlikely spaces like politics and an uplift in visibility on festival bills. Its increased popularity has meant that the genre has faced multiple misconceptions and exposed hindrances like Form 696.

To help map the rise of grime, its impact and influence on popular culture, Ticketmaster is partnering with Westminster University’s Black Music Research Unit and Disrupt to carry out research into the genre. Through this research, Ticketmaster aims to profile the need for proper industry recognition of the genre, bridge the gap between the Grime community and the music industry as a whole, and improve diversity and position Grime within academic study.

Win a pair of tickets to attend the biggest night in UK urban music, Rated Awards 2017 to see your favourite artists perform live by completing the Ticketmasters Grime survey here.
