does anyone who actually knows about clubbing even believe that list though?

it's just marketing

dj mag has been going for years and is very highly regarded. it used to be the bible for new released vinyl back in the day.
it might not be the 'cool list', but it will deffo be a true list.

Except this year they did it via public vote, not editorial opinion. Hence Sankeys spending so much money on getting people to vote for them and jumping 16 places Laughing out loud

Maybe… I mean that should be the case, but we all know Sankeys isnt #1 club in the world. Despite what I said about overselling I still love the gaff dearly and I will always hold it in high esteem for nostalgic reasons alone! Best club in UK more accurate Eye-wink

The article said who was the administrators for it a second ago but now it asks for a login Puzzled
Price Waterhouse Coopers were mentioned in the article I know that. Also said they had received 2 offers or enquiries within hours.

ive got the 20th anniversary poster which has about a thousands names on it.. people throughout the years of fabric.. was gutted when i didn't see blockos named mentioned.

how much does it cost to run a club like that. i just cant work out how they can fuck up. the venue is fucking awesome. the brand is one of the best in the world in my opinion. the websites ace. they've got tons of awesome cd releases that must make sales every day.

dont get it!

Mr David Chubb and Mr Colin Haig have been appointed as joint administrators of Fabric 591 Limited to manage its affairs, business and property as its agents. The administrators act as agents of the company without personal liability. Both are licensed in the United Kingdom to act as insolvency practitioners by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.
