On the weekend of 19th October 2012, fabric officially turns thirteen. Rather than shying away from the fact that there are certain triskaidekaphobic people out there who go the extra mile to avoid anything that involves the number that’s one more than a dozen; they’re celebrating the fact that they’ve officially entered puberty, by programming a suitably special line up for the Friday and by opening the doors for another 32 hour marathon on the Saturday to house sets from residents Craig Richards and Terry Francis alongside a slew of impeccable special guests, many of whom will be playing multiple or extended sets.

The opening fiesta of We Love Space 2012 is set to define the season ahead. After a special singular performance last summer, the Innervisions collective are back on the Terraza (for the first of four shows) in the form of Dixon, Âme and Henrik Schwarz.

Meanwhile, in the Discoteca an old friend is reviving an alias in the form of Carl Craig’s 69. His thundering breakbeats and funk flickers are followed up by fellow D-Town native Derrick May.
