Fabric co-founder Cameron Leslie said: “fabric has always had a no camera policy but as camera phones proliferated that became harder to enforce and we got a bit lax about it."
"Going forward we want to re-emphasize the policy so that we encourage people to stay in the moment, protect the dancefloor experience, and avoid social media stress or anxiety."
