If you've ever been anywhere in EC1 on a Friday or Saturday night then you're sure to have been asked a million times where Fabric is. Right opposite the back of Smithfield's Meat Market, the former meat cellar has been doing a stirling trade since it's conversion in 1999 and is proudly noted as one of the clubs to visit in well, the whole world.
We've spent many a night shaking our ass down there to the likes of Vitalic, Mylo, Jacques Le Cont, Blackstrobe and Annie Mac, so it was with some eye-opening delight that we checked out Fabber's extended 7th birthday celebrations. Everything kicks off this Thursday with drum and bass and the likes of Fabio, Grooverider and MC Dynamite taking to the decks. Fabric Live on Friday is handed over to the breaks crew but it's Saturday's Fabric night that get's us wondering quite how to handle the big event. Opening the doors at 10pm on Saturday night, clubbers will be able to go crazy until midday Sunday and roll right into Smiths of Smithfields for a yummy breakfast when they come out. Amongst the many filling that whopping fourteen hours will be Chilean minimal techno god,Ricardo Villalobos, fresh from a very successful Ibiza season where alongside Richie Hawtin and Sven Vath, Cocoon at Amnesia was the club to be seen at. Live will be Norwegian producer Lindstrom and London tech-house veterans Swayzak.
Tickets for all these events are on sale via ticketweb, but we've been given two pairs of tickets to give away for Saturday's allnighter. All you need to do is fill in your details and tell us the name of the night Ricardo Villalobos runs in Ibiza with Richie Hawtin. We'll let you know if you've won on Friday afternoon!Photo courtesy of Thilo Weimer
