The Cause

The Cause will host its one-year anniversary party this Saturday, May 26.

The day and night party, coined ‘XXX,’ will be spread across the club’s five areas, two outdoor and three indoor, kicking off at 8 a.m. on Saturday, May 26. The line-up will feature residents from the club’s key parties, including Adonis, Tribes, Syzygy, and The Model. 12 artists have been booked and are currently billed as XXX, with only one announced headliner, Amsterdam duo Spokenn (a.k.a. Ferro and Reiss).

The Cause’s co-founder Eugene Wild spoke about the elusive nature of keeping the artists unannounced, stating “there’s a whole load of reasons as to why we’ve kept this under wraps. Primarily we’re 100% DIY. We do most things ourselves at the club, with a very small team. Dealing with the logistics of flights, hotels, and ground transport on our birthday isn’t ideal, we’d rather be on the dancefloor with our phones off, lost in the moment of what we have built, celebrating our birthday, on our terms. Keeping headliners under wraps also gives us flexibility. We are a small independent venue and there is no way we can afford to stack the line-up like we have if they were announced.”

We’ve seen the full line-up here at XLR8R and we can tell you this is not one to be missed!

The Cause

The Cause has become one of London’s best venues due to its unique layout, classy bookings, and a high-quality sound system. The main room, the garage, the barbershop, and the two outside areas create a journey of sound which rewards exploration. The club is set in an industrial estate in London and prides itself in its support of underground artists and promoters.

After launching 12 months ago, The Cause pledged to raise over £25,000 for its mental health-based charity partners CALM and MIND in Haringey. Having raised £20,000 so far they plan on exceeding that target within the next few months. Having proved to the wider community that running a club that gives back is possible, The Cause has now been granted a license extension to January 2020.
