Iconic London nightclub Fabric will now re-open. Let that sink in for a second.
Fabric was closed in September after a government backlash against the fatal overdoses of two 18-year-old patrons. It seemed its fate was sealed when a subsequent hearing did not reinstate the club’s license, but organizers credited an outpour of international support with helping change that verdict before the club’s scheduled appeal. “Without the strength of your backing this would not have happened,” they said in a statement.
The support is strong as ever, and DJs all over the world are cheering. Check out some choice reactions below.

It would be great to see the same energy (financial and otherwise) for fabric now aimed at other worthy anti-austerity causes

Fabric reopening is a win not just for clubbing culture but against corruption in society. Good on the courts for not being “bent”! —-
