DJs React to Fabric Nightclub Closing: Skrillex, Disclosure & More
It's a sad week for London nightlife and dance music culture around the world. It's made even harder by the fact that Fabric night club has no foreseeable answer to the problem. Despite more than 20 years of exemplary service and outstanding performances, it's license was officially revoked and the legendary establishment was forced to close for good.
Such were the results of a review hearing held by London officials Tuesday, Sept. 6, a date that will live in dance floor infamy. Some fans are crying outrage and scandal. A recent report from the Independent questions the sincerity of the hearing and its ruling. It seems difficult to imagine a way around the current reality, meanwhile, the world mourns.
