UK Nightclub fabric Calls For Submissions From Community For 25th Anniversary Book

Legendary London nightclub, fabric, is turning 25 next year and they’re asking for help from their enduring community to write a book about this historic milestone.

They’ve put out a call on social media for fans of the dance music establishment—that was founded in 1999—to share memories, moments, videos, pictures, art, and more from the fans who have been vital to their success.

Organizers had planned to celebrate their 23rd anniversary with the first fabric large-scale, outdoor festival called EXODUS this month, but had to cancel due to high production costs and low ticket sales.

But this determination to keep going has always been a part of fabric’s history, which delayed their grand opening of the venue all the way back in 1999 because they were pursuing perfection.

fabric has endured despite almost shutting down in 2016, after its license was revoked when two people suffered drug-related deaths. The local council felt the venue had a “culture of drug use” and shut it down, devastating the London music community.

But fans and artists alike rallied, with a “Save London fabric” petition that received over 160,000 signatures globally, one fan dancing outside fabric for 24 hours, Goldie announcing he’d melt down his MBE if the club wasn’t reopened, and countless community members donating to the cause.

But fabric did reopen in 2017 with strict drug rules including a zero-tolerance drug policy, lifetime bans to anyone caught with drugs, no under 19s allowed in at the weekends, more surveillance, ID scanners, etc.

The celebration book will be out in 2024, just in time to kick off fabric’s 25th year of highlighting dance music.

The deadline for submissions ends August 7, 2023, and submissions are open now here.
