Back in the (ware)house

Warehouse Project returns for intimate one-off parties

Like the Kersal Massive, the team behind the Warehouse Project “don't f**k about”. Working pretty much round the clock throughout the year these days – with Hideout Festival, out-of-season parties at Trafford Park scattered across the calendar and another international festival up its sleeve – they are hands down one of the world's most formidable, let alone busiest, promotional forces in the world.

It may not come as a surprise then that following the sensational season finale of WHP12 on New Year's Day, which witnessed Heidi, Julio Bashmore and Midland destroy the three rooms of its recently unveiled Trafford Park location, Manchester's most seasoned in a warehouse setting is back at it again – in that dusty storage facility in an industrial park opposite Old Trafford stadium.

For those in the Rainy City who cannot wait until September for their next fix, the WHP will draw upon rooms one and two for a handful of intimate parties. On Friday 25th January, it'll team up with resident party throwers Drop The Mustard to curate a night of fresh-thinking garage, house and techno headlined with a DJ set from SBTRKT alongside an a-list of underground talent, including Floating Points, Bicep, Actress, Trevino and Horse Meat Disco.

The following night, Kaluki present DC10's Circoloco and a selection of its many achingly cool residents, including Mathias Tanzmann b2b Davide Squillace, Tania Vulcano, Richy Ahmed and Clive Henry.

Then, on Friday 1st February, bad-ass bass bringers Metropolis are in the (ware)house with a DJ set from Chase & Status, while Hype, Shy Fx and Joker join a well-to-do cast of d&b, breaks and dubstep big names.
