Well, this rules out the possibility of Fabric London closing anytime soon.

After the Farrington nightclub scrubbed its social media channels and boarded up its entrance, the electronic music community speculated as to the certainty of its future. Now that an unusual art installation has appeared around its storefront, it's clear that the activity was nothing more than a publicity stunt.

Two large, white arrows painted on either side of the entrance now point to eye holes. In addition, a sign on Fabric's front door now reads, "The next chapter starts here. Love, fabric xx."

Fans surmise that the "xx" signifies Fabric's upcoming 20th anniversary. The nightclub opened in 1999, and only closed temporarily after the Islington Council revoked its license following the deaths of two 18-year-old clubbers in 2016.
