Fabric is set to relaunch Room Three with a huge new soundsystem, it has been confirmed.
News that the dancefloor would be brought back into action first hit over summer, having been shut since the club re-opened following its temporary closure in 2016. The longstanding FABRICLIVE sessions— which lent their name to the mix series that’s just about to finish— will be the first to make use of the space, on Friday 14th September, meaning it will be available for the marathon 30-hour 19th Birthday in October.
Dancers are promised a relocated booth, adding greater intimacy, and new Pioneer rig, with the focus on showcasing rising UK talent. Tumble Audio will put the setup through its paces on the debut night, before 3000 Bass (featuring The Marcus Nasty Show), Addictive Behaviour, Then & Now and She Said So step up in the weeks that follow, making this another significant milestone to add to our list of 10 moments that defined Fabric.

Nothing says ‘big weekend’ like a party cruise. With that in mind we’re about to invite you to come on probably the biggest big weekend of 2017. We’re teaming up with the people at THE ARK to host a stage on their incredible party cruise. Taking off from Barcelona for four days of sun, sea and ship-based partying, the cruise will also stop over in Ibiza for a night.
We’re putting together an eye-watering lineup of the very best DJs for our stage. We have to keep it under wraps for the moment, but rest assured it’s going to be huge.
‘THE ARK’ is a 4-day party cruise on which 4,000 passengers can enjoy the hottest electronic music. The ship will be converted to a luxurious floating club with no fewer than seven different stages. Specially for the cruise, on-board facilities such as the current cinemas and theatres, as well as the ice skating rink and the upper deck, will all be converted into festive stages with just the right vibe.
As well as partying, guests will be pampered on the culinary front with a choice of many on-board restaurants, an impressive wellness centre and spa, plus the many sports facilities on board will also be available to all passengers.
Three cities, one island.
The ship sets sail from Barcelona on Thursday, August 31 and from there will travel to Ibiza, where it will dock for an entire day. Passengers will have the opportunity to disembark and explore the island before heading to the French city of Marseille, where guests will be able to spend an afternoon. During the final evening and overnight, the ship will set course for Barcelona again, where it will arrive the next day, bringing this unique mini-vacation to an end.
