Fabric hosts in one night all the UK artists Switzerland sees in a year. don't act like it's just some shitty club. like it or not, that's up to you, but atleast appreciate the massive institution it has become.

If you care about electronic music you should care about Fabric, whether the artists appeal to your taste or not.

One of the biggest clubs in Glasgow, The Arches, was threatened with closure cos a few people died from dodgy pills & one of the girls that died was only 17. So, in the end, they changed it to a 21+ policy for a couple months and had more rigurous searches for a while and now it's all reverted back to normal.

Fabric will probably be too profitable/bring in too much tourism for them to close it I think.

wolf what are you saying.

that its good the club is closing cos its
or that we shouldnt care that the club is closing
dont really get what youre saying

I'm saying I don't get why people are that shook up. It was expensive, over crowded and on those line ups loads of the actually good names have played elsewhere in London recently and others I don't care about.

It's a shame because it's iconic and could get lots of names on one bill but it's not the end of the world. Just not really a fan.

I have seen a good amount of the people on there play in clubs I way prefer and paid less for the drinks, been surrounded by less stnuc and seen probably longer sets

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

right ok you could have just said that at the start rather than why tell the ppl in this thread not to get 'bent out of shape' about it if you dont care. they clearly do

and then whats the point in claiming theyre standard lineips when theyre clearly amongst the biggest in the world

ive only been twice and i agree with everything youve said about rather seeing the good djs elsewhere.

its retarded to claim that fabric isnt an important club that gets standard lineups though especially after saying youve never been

why bother commenting to say
' lived in London 9 months and never went. Stop getting so bent out of shape it put on fairy standard line ups. I do like the Sandwell district mix cd though'
just contributes nothing

Its not that expensive btw, its like £18 usually. Which when you consider most nights are one rooms worth of line up for £10-15 its not that out of hand.
Drinks are standard london prices as well cos FWD can fuck right off with charging £6-7 for "house"brand rum and a £5 a can

I said it to express my opinion on the matter. I don't care about it and I don't see why so many people (some who I'm sure haven't been) are totally losing their shit over it.

Because its a massive clubbing institution.
its a global brand
it hosts the residencies of many labels
it attracts tourists from across europe who are exposed to music from london
its mix series and club nights provides a platform for genres, djs and labels that not many can match
its closure is an example of the current disregard for the importnace of londons clubs which are closing rapidly
for many its an entry to the culture surrounding london music and it may be bait or not good in your eyes but it leads ppl to discover music the music that #wolfhates likes


going into a thread and telling ppl who clearly do care about it that they shouldnt care about it in a high and mighty manner is just rude

Whatever man. I'm just saying that all these people they book aren't about to disappear from playing in London just because one overcrowded club with no vibes closes. Only thing that's a shame is that they did stuff like mix cds which was cool. It's surprising yeah. I can't really see how this could suddenly happen to such a big club. But the people acting like the music scene has died as a result and brining up the (totally harmless) cereal bar and shit is just ridiculous.

It's not the big soulless clubs putting on the same label nights over and over that create a music scene and if anything they are closer to the wankytapas bar side of things anyway what with them being full of people who know fabric for being fabric and shit.

in the beginning there was wolf

and wolf had an opinion

and from that opinion came the opinion of all opinions

and one day whilst viciously throwing down upon his keyboard

wolf boldly declared

"anything that isnt so underground as to be obscure to anyone but me is shit"

and #wolfhates was born

Could never work out why people like going to Fabric so much. I have never had an enjoyable time there. Never found the soundsystems (especially in room 2) much to gush on about. Far as I can tell, the only way to have a good time at Fabric is to go in tanked up and then load up on more drugs since the drinks are stupidly priced (£12 for a double vodka lemonade 2+ years ago???). That's definitely what everyone was doing anyway.

It's done its bit in making London's music scene what it is, and I guess it would be a shame to see it go. But I'm not too bothered.

Also, it hasn't actually closed down yet.

yeah that was a joke about the cereal bars
im being serious about how in london at the moment culturally significant places like fabric are being put under pressure to close to make way for soulless development.
obviously they wont disappear. but if clubs are closing at the rate they are then theyll start playing less and less
its about the bigger picture
and also you posting on the first page about how we shouldnt care because you dont like the club

as far as clubs to go to to get ratted and listen to good music go, fabric is one of the biggest and best. of course itll be sad to see it closing

@kay i know its not closed lol

I'd just say it's run its course and isn't culturally significant any more. Black butter label nights, people playing fwd all the time and big names everyone's seen 100 times isn't what's keeping London's music scene alive. Corsica for example over the last year has had some fucking huge and genuinely exciting line ups. Along with cheaper and better drinks, less over crowding and great sound. Rather go for a big night out there.

If its full of wankers and overpriced with average DJs wouldn't it be a good thing to keep it open? Wankers, overpriced drinks and average DJs won't disappear they'll just all flock to somewhere else and potentially ruin something thats good (in the eyes of people who don't like fabric).

I bet it'll stay open, the articles have said it might be forced to close if they don't renew the licence.. just assumes that they won't renew it. Enough people kick off and they will, seems to be getting a lot of attention so they'll buckle and renew it.

Just to be clear I'm not saying I want it to close. I'm just saying it's not the heart of the London music scene people make it out to be
