It's that time of year again. The Big One is upon us. Join us for our traditional, non-stop, around the clock celebration. With just a few days to go, your head might be already spinning with questions. Can I re-enter? What’s the deal with food? Who’s playing when? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
"So, what can I expect?"
- 30 hours of non stop music
- Staple sets from the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Dax J, VTSS, Francesco Del Garda, AFRODEUTSCHE, DJ Tennis and heaps more.
- Special guests
- Food vendors, ice cream, tea, coffee, and some very special surprise treats.
“Can I come and go over the weekend?”
All tickets for Saturday-Monday's edition allow re-entry. Dip in and out as much as you like.
All tickets for Saturday-Monday’s edition come with re-entry wristbands. Friday’s FABRICLIVE runs from 11pm to 6am. Saturday kicks off at 11pm and runs right the way through to the early hours of Monday morning.
“Will there be tickets on the door?”
As always, we will leave a limited number of tickets on the door.
The beauty of a 30 hour event means we’re always open, so whether you’re down for an early morning session, or fancy popping in after the pub on Saturday night, we’ll be open for a dance. But advance tickets are running low. If you’re set on coming, act fast...
“What’s the dress code? Will there be fancy dress this year?”
Fancy dress at our Birthday is tradition. Outrageous outfits are encouraged. Dressing up isn’t for everyone. Come as you are, as you like, or however you are most comfortable. Whether you’re dressed as you would for a Love Child or Crossbreed event, donning a superwoman outfit, or coming casual and cool – all styles and forms of expression are welcome.
Oh, and we don't want to put our foot in it, but because it's our Birthday and we're feeling generous, we'll also be giving away something special on Friday night, and at the tail end of Sunday for those who stick around. Here's a clue...
“Will there be food?”
This year we’re teaming up with Bertotti Gelato to provide artisan gelato from 7am Sunday morning. And our neighbours at Flipside will be serving up vegan burgers, sandwiches, burritos, wraps, smoothies and milkshakes (GF options available) on site from 4pm Sunday.
There will also be hot and cold drinks all weekend. Coffee and tea can be found by the Free Water Bar, and fruit and snacks will be available near the Sunken Bar.
“When will set times be released?”
We can’t give anything away just yet, but make sure to keep your eyes locked on our socials for the running order, room splits and a special guest announcement coming later this week.
Other important info.

You will not be able to re-enter after Sunday midnight (23:59).
Upon re-entry, you will queue and be searched again. Please consider that there could be a slight wait if you arrive at a busy time period.
fabricfirst club and combo members will have their usual door privileges for both nights.

Members will still need to wait to enter if the club hits capacity.
As always, stay safe and look after each other.
Keep hydrated with the Free Water Bar next to the Room 1 bar and take regular breaks for fresh air. If you need to take some time from the dancefloor at any point, there are chill out spaces throughout. Take a breather on our outdoor seating, by the Mezzanine, at the Sunken Bar or in the zone between Rooms 1 & 2.
Welfare is located by the Smoking Area.
There is a dedicated taxi waiting area and Wifi zone by the exit.
Check in with your friends and leave together, safely.
