The Warehouse Project Reveals First Names for 2019 Season
And it’s relocating to a new home
By now a real clubbing institution, Manchester’s Warehouse Project has freshened things up for its 2019 season by moving away from Store Street. The new spot for this year’s 12-week party run is The Depot, a disused railway depot that had previously been abandoned since 1960. The team have converted it into a three-roomed party space, which opens in August.
As usual, just about everyone you can imagine is playing there at some point over the season, but highlights include an opening party curated by Aphex Twin on Friday, 20 September, with Nina Kraviz, Lee Gamble, ZULI and more all serving up IDM, minimal and experimental techno of the highest order.
A three-pronged All Night Long event sees The Martinez Brothers, Eats Everything and Honey Dijon take charge of The Depot, Concourse and Archive respectively, on Friday, 4 October, while a Haçienda Classical show brings your favourite acid house classics to life with a full orchestra on Saturday, 12 Octobe. Key DJs from that original era also play with Louis Vega, David Morales, Mike Pickering, Graeme Park, Greg Wilson, Arthur Baker and Marshall Jefferson all lining up.
Across The Warehouse Project’s three-month duration, you can also look forward to Drumcode parties, Annie Mac Presents, a night curated by Four Tet, a vast Homoelectric get-together and live shows from Underworld, Fisher, Floating Points, plus the usual New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations before things draw to a close.
