Fabric announces re-opening parties in January

By | Published on Monday 5 December 2016


Fabric has announced that it will re-open on Friday 6 Jan, with three nights of music from some of the venue’s closest associates.

The opening party will feature a line-up of guests to be revealed on the night, while the Saturday slot will be headlined by Craig Richards and Terry Francis. The Sunday night will see promoter Wetyourself re-instated as weekly resident, having temporarily relocated back to Club Aquarium during Fabric’s temporary closure, with Jacob Husley and Peter Pixzel among the DJs in attendance.

“It’s pretty much impossible for us to put a measure on just how much gratitude we are feeling right now to be able to announce our reopening proper”, said Fabric last week. As previously reported, supporters donated over £300,000 to help Fabric fight Islington Council through the courts after the local authority revoked its licence in the wake of two drugs-related deaths at the venue. Though in the end a deal was done with the Council allowing the venue to re-open without going to court.

“We’ve said it before and we will keep on saying it – you are all to thank for this”, the club continued. “The credit for this is shared among hundreds of thousands of petition signers, letter writers, donors, t-shirt bearers, artists, party promoters and more than we can ever recount. A community of people from the world over who came together and continued the principal of unity that was central to the foundation of our culture – to save us”.

It added: “Now it’s about what’s ahead of us. We’re looking ahead to filling our disco with our family of artists and club heads alike, with our sound systems including our new Pioneer Pro Audio Room Two set up pushing out mesmeric high level sound. This is what it has always been about”.
