Stopping by Manchester will be a host of some of the biggest names in electronic, experimental and underground music, including a whole night dedicated to the game-changing acid house movement of the city’s Hacienda era. Four Tet, Skrillex, Annie Mac, Fatboy Slim, Floating Points and just about every other big name in electronic music join a line-up that reads like a who’s who of late-night bangers.
Since its first ever party program in 2006, then at a disused brewery in the northern part of Manchester, The Warehouse Project has become somewhat of an annual pilgrimage for British fans of electronic music. Driven by the strength of their programming and use of otherwise abandoned or derelict spaces, the event series – which runs every year from the beginning of September to New Year’s Day – attracts a dazzling spectrum of some of the world’s finest DJs, producers and musicians to a city with deep ties to electronic music and pioneers of early rave culture.
Having spent almost a decade bringing thousands of club-goers together in a disused air raid shelter beneath one of the city’s train stations, the Warehouse Project will this year take to Mayfield Depot, a disused, 10,000 capacity space, just a stone’s throw from the previous Store Street venue.
Kicking off on Friday, September 20th, the ancestral home of acid house and rave will welcome an eclectic array of genre-defying artists; with a series of nights built around a carefully curated selection of sound and style. Check out the full lineup, and purchase tickets from 9am this coming Friday, on the Warehouse Project site, here
