Fabric announces 20th anniversary celebrations following social media blackout


The London venue has broken its silence on its recent three-day social media blackout.

Earlier this week, Fabric boarded up its entrance and deleted its Facebook account, sparking rumours that the club’s future was, once again, under threat. All posts from the club’s Twitter and Instagram pages, save for a post with a single black square. Now, Fabric has revealed the reason behind its mysterious blackout.

A message from the club, via a press release, reads: “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.”

“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.” Titled Fabric XX, the club is set to host a year-long series of events for its 20th anniversary, comprised of 20 special parties in addition to its regular club schedule, and new residents.

Phase one of its birthday celebrations will see Lee Burridge open proceedings with an extended set on 27 January, followed by a four-hour set from Bonobo on 24 February. Elsewhere on the programme, sets will be helmed by Tale of Us, Fuse, John Digweed and The Martinez Brothers.

A new mix series, titled Fabric presents, will also be launched with its first edition curated by Bonobo.
