Friday 1st November saw the return of Ibiza powerhouse ANTS to UK shores, helping Fabric with their 20th birthday celebrations whilst doing so.
This was the second year running that ANTS brought their event to Fabric and from the reviews which I read about 2018's event, it was a night which I was buzzing about for ages.
Overall the event was definitely on point and lived up to my expectations, although the very tight security checks whilst trying to get into the club being the only negative part of the night.
When I said that ANTS is an Ibiza powerhouse, it felt that the security measures to get into the club were probably on the same level as airport security when trying to get to Ibiza.
However, I cannot blame Fabric for this as I was perfectly aware that these strict measures were infamously agreed with the local authority back in 2016 in order to reinstate Fabric's license. However once finally inside, it was obvious that the wait and security checks where definitely all worth it.
My mate and I arrived just before midnight and despite the queues outside, everything was in full swing, the atmosphere was electric from start to finish.
The dance floor was rammed, but not to an uncomfortable level as there was still plenty of room for the both of us to dance with each other and with our fellow ravers.
All the revellers were very friendly also with zero signs of trouble and with everyone looking after each other like a massive family, the bar staff also kept the positivity alive.
Whilst on the dance floor the sets were incredible, but with an goliath of an international line-up of Ibiza favourites which included ANOTR, Eli Brown, Francisco Allen, Matthias Tanzmann and Secondcity; I think you'll easily understand why the music was on top form and why everyone was loving the event from start to finish.
In my opinion, the best sets of the night were from Eli Brown and the ANOTR boys who smashed it!
Their masterful mixing of House, Tech-House and some Techno, kept the energy levels going and certainly made an impact on the dance floor.
There were also killer sets from Fabric residents Jaden Thompson and Lindsey Matthews who I can quite safely say are rising stars who are ones to watch!
I've got to admit that it was difficult to work out which DJ's where playing at times, mainly due to their set times not being published and the DJ booth being covered in darkness.
However despite this, I believe that everyone were in the club with the same mindset of 'who cares as it's all about the music and the vibes' which Fabric yet again masterfully housed and makes it obvious as to why Fabric is still going 20 years down the line with the same amount of loyalty and respect which it's earned from the ravers, dance and nightclub community alike.
