Fabric has been saved. The famed London nightclub came under fire in August of this year for the death of an 18 year old within its walls. Shortly thereafter, the club was subsequently shut down and DJs who had spent their time in its hallowed halls spoke out against the injustice.
After his own heartfelt outpouring, Cameron Leslie, the club’s co-founder, quickly earned the support of all of club culture. In November the club appealed its closure and today it has announced that it will finally be re-opening its doors.
“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.”
