fabric launch new 24-hour+ event series ‘Continuum’
Some of the parties will run for an entire weekend
Circling back to its original opening parties in the early naughties, fabric will once again host 24-hour events in a new series spanning 2021 and 2022, Continuum.
Each event will run for a full day — or longer, with some taking up entire weekends at the London haunt. The first party in the series takes place between November 20 and 22 with a techno-focused line-up.
Joining the bill for the opening party is Dave Clarke, Dr Rubinstein, Blawan, Tasha,François X, and more, with some live performances thrown into the mix.
Three weekends later, another marathon event takes place named ‘RPR & Friends’, which will see Romanian techno favourites [a:rpia:r] (Rhadoo, Petre Inspirescu, and Raresh) head the line-up, alongside Batu, Sugar Free, tINI, and Quest.

Jorge Nieto, fabric's Creative Director compared the new series to the original 24-hour parties: “Back in the day, fabric used to do [24-hour parties] and the idea now is to bring it back in, to be able to cater for completely different crowds.”
Following a similar route to Berlin’s renowned weekend-long soirees and no-photo clubbing etiquette recently brought in by the venue, fabric is gradually moving back to its original form.
“It gives the opportunity to bring up-and-coming or mid-range artists and put them in-between heavyweight acts so they get the exposure they wouldn't get on a normal night. I think that’s one of the most interesting things about doing 24-hour events,” says Nieto.

The first 2022 events have been revealed, but line-ups are yet to be announced. ‘DJ Tennis & Friends’ will take place between January 29 - 30, with ‘Craig Richards Curates’ coming February 19 - 20.
fabric has now produced a video highlighting to club’s history, and the reason that now is the right time to bring back the two-decade-old 24-hour party ethos. Watch fabric: 24+ hours below.
