Organisers of The Warehouse Project have finally confirmed their new location – after moving from their original Store Street location in the city.
A new series of events for 2019 will take place at the Depot (the old Mayfield train depot) which has a capacity for 10,000 clubbers.
And to herald its new location, bosses have secured some of the most sought-after names in music for its autumn season, with seven special events.
The likes of Aphex Twin (his first ever curated show), Skepta, Disclosure, Nina Kraviz, Chase and Status and Marco Carola have all been announced for the new series which will run in September, October and November.
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 new space, a disused railway depot abandoned since 1960, is being transformed into a one-of-a-kind entertainment and arts venue, marking a huge milestone for the city’s culture scene and simultaneously creating a cavernous new setting for the The Warehouse Project on Fairfield Street, just next to Piccadilly Train Station.
