Farringdon’s beloved underground nightclub; Fabric has broken it’s silence, following an unnerving 72 hours which left the scene guessing what the hell was going on. After their Facebook/Twitter pages were deactivated and their instagram wiped with just one image of a black square remaining, questions were flying around from fans, artists and promoters across the globe.
Outside the club itself, the club’s entrance had become boarded up with the same black squares, however at 10am on Thursday 17th January it was revealed that this was all part of their exciting 20th anniversary announcement.
To mark the incredible milestone, the club will be throwing 20 special parties alongside their regular schedule. Named fabric XX, the series will be released in phases, with the first announcement bringing Lee Burridge, Bonobo, Tale Of Us, John Digweed, The Martinez Bros and a label showcase from FUSE. All parties are set to feature extended sets and showtimes.
Many more shows are still TBA, and they’ll no doubt have some more staggering names up their sleeves.
The club had this message to say :
The next chapter starts here.
Many of you will be wondering what this means, why we boarded up and repainted parts of the club and why we deleted our online presence this week. In 2019 we celebrate our 20th anniversary, and while to many this would present an opportunity to reflect on the past, we see it as an important opportunity to look to the future.
Since opening our doors for the first time in 1999 we have always put our focus on running a space that would become a home for expression and creativity in London. Artists and dancers from across the globe have descended our staircases and established our position as both a local dance spot and international melting pot. As we enter our 20th year, we’ll be celebrating our anniversary by refreshing and building upon everything that’s helped us reach where we are today.
Tickets for the anniversary shows are available here
