If you thought that the raving community of London – and the entire world – were going to take the closure of Fabric lying down, you’re surely mistaken. After the devastating news that the club would have it’s license revoked following two deaths related to drugs inside the world-famous dance venue in Farringdon, London, a new petition has already been born and it’s been announced that the club will fight the decision.
Right now though, attendees are in a state of mourning as the club – a highly influential establishment of nightlife in the UK’s capital – currently looks set to be eliminated from the continually shrinking nightlife options for London partygoers. To mark the end of an era, clubbers have headed to the nightclub to place tributes at the doors of the club. One set of flowers reads “Thank you for the best times of my life” while another laments that the club joins other closed venues like Turnmills and The Fridge in the “great club in the sky”.
Speaking to NME last night at The Rated Awards, Tim Westwood called it a “call for arms” as the police and councils take away London’s nightlife and Donae’o said that “we weren’t just losing a club, we’re losing a massive part of history that Fabric captured”.
