fabric’s WetYourSelf!, the party running every Sunday at the Farringdon venue for the last eight years, has announced that it’s found a temporary home at Aquarium on Old Street whilst fabric is closed following the revocation of its license earlier this month (September).
WetYourSelf!’s opening party at the east London venue is set to take place on Sunday 2nd October, with all proceeds going straight to the #SaveOurCulture campaign. The line-up is still TBA.
“For us fabric was our home and our dream,” WetYourSelf! promoter and resident DJ Jacob Husley said in a statement on fabric’s blog. “One we fought very hard to get to, and one we fought very hard to keep.”
“Hosting the Sunday night at fabric has been a huge privilege and we have always tried to pass on that gift by making the night a platform for emerging artists in the underground house and techno scene in London and abroad.
“For many artists it has been a game changer, giving them the confidence to trust in their own talent and to focus on their professional careers in music. Knowing we’ve lost this platform, it is incredibly hard to find the motivation to continue, but it is now more important than ever.
“We need to show that we cannot be beaten, and that the party will continue. It won’t be the same as fabric, but it will still be a platform for our community to keep the movement going by showcasing our music every week.”
