Vivienne Westwood to host a Mad Max themed night at London's Fabric nightclub

For those who don't know Fabric nightclub first opened on 21st October 1999 in Farringdon London. Simply put, fabric was conceived by people that go to clubs, for people that go to clubs. The club has three separate rooms, stages for live acts are featured in two- and all have their own independent sound system.

Fabric occupies a total area of 25,000 square feet. Aside from the unisex toilets, a unique feature of the club is the vibrating floor in Room One. Known as a "bodysonic" dancefloor, sections of the floors are attached to 450 bass transducers which emit bass frequencies, allowing clubbers to feel the music through the low end frequencies transmitted into their skeletons via their feet.

With almost two decades under their belt it shows the sheer magnitude of the club and its ability to withstand the times. Fabric has seen countless world famous dj’s grace the club and play bass driven dance music. From drum and bass, grime and dubstep to UKG, funky and everything in between, people not only value but care about the culture and city’s nightlight and have continued coming to Fabric. Unfortunately Fabric Nightclub famously closed its doors in 2016 due to Islington council making the decision following Fabrics association with ‘Culture of drugs’ in its venue.

However thanks to all their supporters who very generously put their names and voices forward to the cause of gaining back the licence, Fabric once again opened its doors months later. All walks of life from artists, clubbers, the music community- fellow promoters put huge events on and even people have been seen around the globe wearing their #savefabric T shirts, and with over 50,000 people supported the campaign- so it just shows how much of a thing this was.

Regular Guests: Alix Perez, Annix, Barely Legal, Calyx & TeeBee, Chase & Status, Congo Natty, David Rodigan, DBridge, Dillinja, DJ Hype, DubPhizix & Strategy, Elijah & Skilliam, Erol Alkan, Fabio, Friction, Goldie, Groove Armada, Hatcha, Hazard, High Contrast, Jackmaster, JME, Kasra, Kode9, Loadstar, Loefah, LTJ Bukem, Logan Sama, Marcus Intalex, Marky, My Nu Leng, Netsky, Newham Generals, Plastician, P Money, Redlight, Rockwell, S.P.Y, Scratch Perverts, Simian Mobile Disco, Skepta, Skream, SubFocus, Tom Shorterz & many more.

Always ahead of the cultural trends, Vivienne Westwood is always considered to be Britains best designer. Where total eccentricity and a keen curiosity is where Westwood is. Her latest venture is with Fabric nightclub. Vivienne Westwood is set to host a special show, with music from A Guy Called Gerald.

Called SWITCH, the night will focus on Westwood’s Climate Revolution organisation and will be aimed at encouraging punters to switch onto green energy and become more climate-conscious. The night will be held on February 20th.

'There is one truly political act you can make as an individual or a group switch to green energy,the event page reads. Stop the demand for burning fossil fuels and further fracking and making choices that stop climate change'. Designer Westwood will speak on the night alongside green energy provider Ecotricity’s Dale Vince.

The dress code is ‘Mad Max’. The night is part of Westwood’s ongoing environmental, social and political activism. Speaking at her son Joe Corré’s event, where he set fire to his collection of punk memorabilia, the designer asked the crowd to consider switching to eco-friendly energy. Her most recent London show saw the merging of her Red Label and MAN collections. Models wore crowns stamped with ‘Ecotricity’ in tribute to the renewable energy company, with one pair of trousers reading, “What’s good for the planet... is bad for the economy”.

We think it will be a great night and definitely not one to miss.
