Fabric, one of London’s most prolific nightclub has won its battle against injustice with the help of countless artists and dance music fans! The London club had come into the limelight for the wrong reason in August of this year for the death of an 18 year old within its walls. Following the incident the club was asked to shut operations and close its doors to dance music and it’s enthusiasts a move that was resented by many industry stalwarts who spent a good part of their career days playing at the club. Over the last few months, a lot of people stood up for the club and against the injustice rightly claiming that a club or a culture cannot be blamed for an individual’s irresponsible behaviour. The #SaveFabric campaign was not just a campaign anymore and became a movement that brought together artists and fans alike. In November, the club appealed against its closure and today it has announced that it will finally be re-opening its doors.
In an official statement by the club’s management they expressed gratitude for all the support they received.
We are hugely thankful to be able to confirm the news that we have won our licence back. We owe everything to our supporters. We really would not be here today without your unparalleled support and generosity. So many different people stepped up to put their voices to our cause, artists from all corners of the music community, fellow promoters who have put on huge events from us and clubbers from around the world who all united behind us. We’ve even seen people sporting their #savefabric T Shirts on the other side of this planet showing just how big this thing is.
So, thank you to all of you. Without the strength of your backing this would not have happened.
You saved fabric.
We’ll be back with some news about #saveourculture and our next steps when we can.
This gives us hope and once again proves that Music Is The Universal Religion that unites people and brings everyone closer. We wish more power to Fabric and every dance music fan out there!
