The date has been set: fabric London has scheduled its official reopening for January 6th.

The London venue won its license back two weeks ago following a hard-fought battle with local officials. The reopening will come with a series of must-comply conditions including lifetime bans for anyone found in possession of drugs, increased CCTV cameras and covert surveillance inside the club. We voiced our opinions on the matter, stating that while the news was a positive one, the conditions set a dangerous precedent and don’t in fact properly tackle the problems that resulted in the club’s closure in the first place. fabric’s return comes after four months of closure which saw the Islington music institution create headlines around the world when it was shut down following two drug-related deaths earlier this year.

Although the lineup for January 6th will remain secret, fabric is labeling the night as “a cherished moment in our history.” The Fabriclive “friends and family” affair will be followed by a second night on January 7th which will also still has not confirmed lineup except for residents Terry Francis and Craig Richards. A Wetyourself party on Sunday, January 8th will round off the club’s reopening weekend.

The statement from the club reads:

“It’s pretty much impossible for us to put a measure on just how much gratitude we are feeling right now to be able to announce our reopening proper. We’ve said it before and we will keep on saying it—you are all to thank for this. The credit for this is shared among hundreds of thousands of petition signers, letter writers, donors, t-shirt bearers, artists, party promoters and more than we can ever recount. A community of people from the world over who came together and continued the principal of unity that was central to the foundation of our culture—to save us.”

“Now it’s about what’s ahead of us. We’re looking ahead to filling our disco with our family of artists and club heads alike, with our soundsystems including our new Pioneer Pro Audio Room Two set up pushing out mesmeric high level sound. This is what it has always been about.”
