fabricfirst T&Cs

1. fabricfirst member benefits

  • CD subscribers - One fabric/FABRICLIVE CD per monthly payment
  • Digital subscribers - One fabric/FABRICLIVE download per monthly payment. Please note that if you’ve signed up for a fabric or FABRICLIVE only digital membership, and because we alternate between releasing a monthly fabric or FABRICLIVE mix, you may have to wait for the following month to receive your first download.
  • Membership card when you first join
  • £8 off the door entry price on Friday and Saturday nights, with reduced price entry at most other events at fabric
  • Free CD picked at random from the fabric/FABRICLIVE series when you first join (pay-monthly CD subscribers only)

  • Ability to bring a full-paying guest into the priority line with you
  • Access to exclusive audio and video on the fabric website
  • Further discounts and offers
  • Monthly e-mail newsletter

  • *Since the reopening of fabric in 2017 please note the following important points:

    On high density nights. ie. when advanced tickets have sold out and there is a high demand for club entry, your priority entry will only be available if you are in the fabricfirst line before 2am. If you can’t make it by then you will be asked to join the main queue.

    We will always give you a heads up of when these shows are going to be by sending you an email beforehand. It is therefore important that you enable your email host to receive messages from eflyer@fabriclondon.com.

    On the odd occasion despite our best efforts there may be an occasion where we have to limit the fabricfirst line unexpectedly. We will do all we can to keep this to an absolute minimum.

    There is a limit to 50 people receiving fabricfirst discount each night.
