Some of the most sought after names in music will head to Manchester this autumn, as The Warehouse Project drops seven special events and a brand new venue for its 2019 edition.
Aphex Twin’s first ever fully curated show will open the season on Friday 20th September. The musical icon makes his return to Manchester for the first time since 2011. Disclosure headline Saturday 21st to complete a huge opening weekend.
Skepta, Nina Kraviz, Marco Carola, Flume, Chase & Status and dozens more are all also locked in to perform throughout these first revealed events. All the action takes place at the newly formed 10,000-capacity Depot which is located at Mayfield right in the heart of Manchester, next to Piccadilly Station.
WHP co-founder, Sam Kandel says, “What’s happening down at Mayfield with the launch of the Depot venue is a huge moment for the whole of Manchester. There are a huge number of people and various different institutions and networks working in true collaboration to make this a reality. We are so grateful that WHP can play its part. After nearly ten years of pushing and pulling to make this place base camp for WHP it’s finally happening. We can’t wait.”
The space, a disused railway depot abandoned since 1960, is being transformed into a one of a kind multi-facetted venue, marking a huge milestone for the city’s culture scene and simultaneously creating an awesome and cavernous new setting for The Warehouse Project.
