Fabric Closed This Weekend Following Deaths
The London superclub will run no events this weekend as an investigation is underway after two eighteen year old men died following drug overdoses at the venue in the last nine weeks. The club, which has faced pressure from the authorities in recent years over drug concerns, released this statement on its website regarding its decision.
"For the past two years fabric has operated without incident but tragically in the past nine weeks two 18-year-old boys have died as a consequence of drug overdoses. In order to understand how this has happened we have agreed with the police and other agencies to suspend our operation whilst we investigate. The club will therefore be closed this weekend.
We will make a further statement next week but in the meantime for anyone who has purchased a ticket for the club this weekend, we have instructed Resident Advisor to refund all ticket purchases."
