The Cause may have found a new home - and will be trialing it on New Year’s Eve. The North London club has found an industrial warehouse space with plenty of natural light and a layout that founders hope to split into three rooms and a decent-sized outdoor space - all away from any residents.
The new site still has plenty of red tape to get through to become the next chapter for The Cause, so for now the NYE show is the only way to experience the new space. There will be shuttle buses running all night, enabling revellers with tickets to The Cause NYE party access via a four-minute ride away.
The lineup will remain a secret, but ticket holders can expect all strands of dance music over six rooms and two venues. Gerd Janson, Jamie xx, Shanti Celeste, Saoirse, Call Super, Daniel Avery, Cinthie, Jane Fitz, DJ Deeon, Jensen Interceptor, Voigtmann and Rossko have all played either unannounced (or announced a day or so before) in the last year alone, so expect some heavyweight selectors.
Co-founder of The Cause, Stuart Glen, said: “Since we opened, we were always hunting for our next site. For a variety of reasons, quite simply none of them have been perfect. However we knew when we stepped inside here, that we could re-create the magic we’re known for IF we can win over the powers that be.
“We have a lot of battles, and quite simply, if we don’t win these, our dreams here will never evolve. As such we’ve seized the opportunity and are extending our last dance in our current space into the first dance of what may or may not be our new home. This will be a triple celebration for the club as we also welcome a new decade with a monstrously big NYE show.”
