Dance music is now a global business, with almost all corners of the globe tuned into the scene. Yet for voters in our annual Top 100 Clubs poll, Europe’s dominance is clear. European venues made up 6 of the top 10 clubs in last year’s poll.
Voting in this year’s poll is open now, but before you cast your vote, check out Europe’s highest ranked clubs from last year’s ranking…
Call us masochists, gluttons for punishment, or just people that don't know when to take a break. Either way, despite the collective gout following a festive season of red wine, cheese, and copious parties, it's time to look ahead at the finest sessions the UK has to offer in the coming weeks.
London and the South has plenty to distract you from impending credit card payments. Tesselate hits the capital's beloved Corsica Studios with two of Berghain's best, Nick Höppner and ND_Baumecker, which should be more than decent.
Clearly, the concept of copyright doesn't really exist in China as a nightclub sporting the same name and logo as famed London nightclub fabric has been spotted operating in the country.
The club was spotted by a Dutch DJ and promoter Bram van Ravenhorst who runs Chongqing club Echo Bay and took some pictures of the club's exterior, sporting fabric's iconic logo, which have since gone viral.
The club is located in the Beibin Lu area of downtown Chongqing and clearly is trying to cash in on fabric's world-renowned brand.
Fabric will be launching a new fortnightly event series in early 2018 dubbed Forms. Skream headlines the series’ debut party on 19th January.
Forms will run on alternating Fridays with the long-standing FABRICLIVE party. The series promises to bring “fresh new energy to the long, dark January nights”.
Yousef, Monki, Michael Mayer, &ME and Christoph are among the talents confirmed to perform Forms during the first three months of 2018. A number of special guests will be revealed as the dates near.
Fabric will be hosting a Saturday series of all-night back-to-back events during 2018. The first wave of artists includes Ricardo Villalobos, Nicolas Lutz, Boddika and The Martinez Brothers.
The series commences 13th January with Adam Shelton and Subb-an. The 27th January set from The Martinez Brothers is currently the only solo all-night set to be announced.
Craig Richards has revealed that he will be stepping down from his weekly Fabric London slot in 2018 in a new interview.
Richards, who will remain a DJ resident at the club in a monthly format, has held his weekly residency at the Farringdon venue since it opened in 1999.
These are the top 30 UK club events in October 2017, so forget about nuclear war for a second... London sees Fabric pull together a monumental line-up for its birthday, be on the floor for Donato Dozzy and Peter Van Hoesen's back to back.
Trouble Vision also has an anniversary, Sprinkles bringing proper house stuff- and no doubt politics- with Willow incapable of doing wrong right now. Those aside, Sebastian Mullaert was the best thing at Freerotation this year; a continous build of achingly beautiful stomping techno, so fair play to Superstition for that booking.
fabric has locked in Ben UFO, Donato Dozzy B2B Peter Van Hoesen, Blawan, Ricardo Villalobos, Abdulla Rashim, Hammer, Jay Clarke, Margaret Dygas, Nicolas Lutz, Raresh, and Voigtmann for its 18th Birthday. Naturally, legendary residents Craig Richards and Terry Francis will also be getting a slice of the cake, with the promise of more surprise guests to boot.
DJ Sneak recently spoke to DJ Mag Ibiza, voicing his concerns over the dangers of social media aswell as remarking on his comments during London club Fabric’s recent closure.
