New independent venue The Cause has launched a crowdfunding campaign as it seeks to stem the tide of London’s nightclub closures.
The aim is to create a new self-built arts and event space in Tottenham, north London, with a quality sound system and a large focus on the local community.
The crowdfunding campaign needs to raise £30,000 to complete the venue. Some of the perks which can be purchased with a donation include recording a mix in the club, the chance to play on the sound system and £100 worth of drinks for £50.
After completion of the project, The Cause will operate a membership scheme to cover the costs of running the club and raise money for local charities. The charity partners include Mind in Haringey, the Campaign Against Living Miserably and Help Musicians UK.
The Cause will celebrate the launch of the new campaign with a special party on Friday 13 April 2018 featuring performances from an American house music legend (yet to be revealed), the mysterious Tusk Wax, modern acid house artists Posthuman and more acts to be announced.
“After putting on some of London’s best underground parties for years we want to harness our network and create a space for the London dance music community,” says Stuart Glen, co-founder.
“The Cause is designed from the ground up to give back to people around us. Creative and inspiring at its core, The Cause is a DIY love child of Eugene Wild (co-founder) and a fight against the club closures across the capital, all while helping others.”
