Although there has been a lot of speculation throughout recent months with regards to the London Nightlife position, especially with focus on previous NPO articles...there is a glimmer of light through the ever thickening smoke.
After having a conversation, a friend hinted speculation about a 24 Hour nightclub based in London called Fold, I hardly believed him and had to delve a little deeper.
Located in a desolate area between Canning Town and Star Lane, the East London venue will be the new home for the hardcore party goer. With beyond huge expectations already, being the new boy on the block will be difficult. With so many huge venues and club names in London like Fabric, Printworks and Oval Space, Fold will need to earn its status. However, due to our (mainly my own) excitement and creative imagination we have already built up this subliminal reputation, and none of us can wait.
The club itself is situated upon an old printing factory with a huge 600 capacity dancefloor, indefinitely exposing this venue to hit London with an explosive ‘24 hour bananza’ on the 18th August. With the opening party christened ‘The First Dance’ we will all look on to the match made in heaven and embrace East London's first and unimaginable, 24 hour rave. Pinch yourself!
As stated on their event description, Fold have a ‘tailored soundsystem (un)limited at 110DB and a bottom end of 22hz' with 'the freedom to fill the main room’ and packing a punch for everyone in the warehouse. Just like the latest light show and most recent industrial venue success: Printworks, Fold’s weekend parties will be starting at Midday but will flow 24 Hours through to the next afternoon. Its opening party will be home to Goldsnap, OPULENCE, KAOS London, EarToGround, World Unknown and more.
With a shopping list of respected names, this lineup will create an opening night to remember.
