With a brand new venue to show off in September, Manchester’s Warehouse Project looks set to change the face of the city’s hallowed club scene once again after today’s announcement of a huge series of gigs in the final quarter of this year.
Katy B will be performing on the opening night on September 28th alongside Skream and Diplo. The following night is characterised by some of the most exciting and well-established names in tech and house. Nicolas Jaar and Seth Troxler bring their big reputations to the top of the bill whilst a host of young stars and WHP 2012 residents, Maya Jane Coles, Jacques Greene, Julio Bashmore and Maceo Plex included, bring youth, innovation and a whole load of excitement to the evening.
The Warehouse Project’s success in recent years has always been based on its extraordinary ability to craft diverse and impression line-ups like no other. One of the greatest gigs list year is sure to be on the 6th of October when SBTRKT curates his own night. TNGHT (ft. Hudson Mohawke and Lunice), Caribou, Pariah, xxxy, Rustie and Four Tet on one bill make it perhaps the biggest night for future bass that you’ll see in the UK this year, and that’s before you even see SBTRKT’s superb live show which has already rocked Manchester once this year.
The usual favourites will also be there to put on some of the biggest shows in dubstep, house and drum and bass this country has probably ever seen. Hospitality return on November 23rd with pretty much everyone who’s been nig in drum and bass in the past 5 years including London Elektricity, High Contrast, Camo & Krooked, Andy C, Fred V & Graffix, Danny Byrd (remarkably featuring General Levy and MC Serocee), S.P.Y. and a headline appearance from Netsky. Boys Noize return once again with their own night, this time alongside Simian Mobile Disco, whilst Chase & Status, Chemical Brothers, Armin van Buuren and Sub Focus all appear on separate occasions, returning to the Warehouse Project with headline slots.
The success of the Warehouse Project, however, has always been to take things to the next level. If SBTRKT’s night doesn’t do it for you this year then you might want two of the biggest acts in tech / electronica in the world, Orbital and Modeselektor, on the same bill which promises to be as visually astounding as it will be sonically. Add to that a Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs curated Halloween Party, appearances from Fatboy Slim, Magnetic Man and Justice AND Bloc Party dropping in to debut their fourth album, it’s going to be one of the biggest things to happen in UK dance music EVER. Trust me.
