Moment security brawl with revellers in ugly scenes outside O2 Forum in Kentish Town as crowd descended on music venue for hip hop gig

Security guards brawled with revellers in ugly scenes outside the O2 Forum in Kentish Town last night.

Video circulating on X shows Showtec staff wearing yellow hi-vis vests jostling with a number of men outside the London music venue. 

Iranian hip-hop band Zedbazi were listed as playing at the O2 Forum at the time of the fracas. 

The footage starts with a security guard grabbing hold of a man’s hand who can be heard telling him ‘you have to stay here’. The man then gives him a gentle shove and walks away.

It then cuts to a bearded Showtec employee wearing a grey fleece pushing a man wearing a grey gilet and navy baseball cap.

Another person wearing a yellow top is huddled on the ground as a security guard is seen pulling a man clinging onto the rails.  

Things then escalate as the scene abruptly clips to a T-shirt wearing reveller falling on the floor who then picks up one of the O2 Forum branded metal barricades and chucks it towards Showtec staff.

Five men are huddled near the entrance of the concert venue in another shot and appear to be trying to strike a man on the ground. He then gets to his feet and grabs hold of reveller’s top before being kicked to the floor.

It is not known what caused the melee. MailOnline has contacted Met Police, the O2 Forum, and Showtec for comment.
