London’s The Cause has officially fully opened its new site at 60 Dock Road after an 18-month soft launch.

Two years after the closing of their beloved Tottenham Hale venue, the DIY clubbing institution is set to launch its 60 Dock Road location “in its fullest form”, this week, having hosted a series of events at the site during its building phase. The Cause 2.0 features five indoor rooms ranging from 60 to 1000 capacity, state-of-the-art sound systems and lighting by Sensory Studio, Martin Audio, and Noise Control Audio, plus a large outdoor area.

Kicking off the year at the venue, The Cause will host their Welcome To 2024 party this weekend (Saturday 27th February) featuring Optimo, Pablo Bozzi, Binh, Suze Ijó, Lola Haro, and Katya. A slew of names have also been announced for the upcoming season, including Flowdan, BLUMITSU (Jossy Mitsu + Bluetoof), Special Request, Tim Reaper, Sully, Katya, Evian Christ, Dr Rubinstein, SICARIA, Michelle Manetti, and more.

The Cause has also announced a number of party brands on board for 2024, including Adonis, Wigflex, Percolate, Evian Christ’s Trance Party, and Latin American queer collective, 2CPerrea.

Due to the current economic climate, the site at 60 Dock Road is still a temporary home for The Cause, and will operate around the day-to-day operations of large-scale set designers, ateliers, photographers, artists, creative enterprises, SMEs and start-ups.

Stuart Glen, co-founder of The Cause, said: “Bringing the beast back that our team created in Tottenham was a huge challenge, but finally this feels like a place we can settle into, at least for the time being! Just like our original site, the temporary nature of meanwhile spaces in which we operate should never be underestimated. Enjoy it whilst it lasts!”

Since closing their Tottenham site, The Cause crew has continued to put on events in London and further afield, including pop-up Hackney Wick venue, All My Friends, and The Seaside Beano festival. In 2022, the club launched a new party series, Possibly Maybe, which took place at the temporary space on 60 Dock Road.

Founders Stuart Glen and Eugene Wild started The Cause in January 2018, with the intention of creating a single-room club space alongside artists' studios and workspaces. At its peak, the venue had seven indoor rooms, as well as multiple outdoor dance floors. The club also raised £150,000 for various charities during its tenure.
