With autumn approaching, the build-up to The Warehouse Project’s tenth season is fully underway. To celebrate its first full decade of being intrinsic to the fabric of Manchester nightlife, some extra and exceptional shows have been announced for the summer, teasing what’s to come as WHP15 takes hold.
Collaborating and curating with Manchester International Festival (also celebrating their tenth year in the city), July kick-starts proceedings with two 1800 capacity events at Mayfield Depot. On Friday 17th July, Koreless and Tyondai Braxton join a live performance from Four Tet in the vast, raw warehouse space. The next night, Saturday 18th July, boasts a colossal lineup headed by two of the strongest forces in techno, Carl Craig & Mike Banks. From 2pm to 2am, Mr Ties, Joy Orbison, DJ Koze and Midland all take to the decks, and Octave One and Dark Sky bring their live show to the stage. With the venue set to be knocked down at the end of the year, the 10 x 10 weekend is a rare and exclusive opportunity to see the Mayfield Depot brought to life.
Two shows from the WHP15 programme have also been announced for Friday 16th October. Taking storm of Manchester Academy are the dancehall army Major Lazer, bringing floor-rattling beats and tropical syncopations fresh off the release of Peace Is The Mission this June. Meanwhile, Jamie XX fills the ornate Grade II listed Albert Hall with the sounds of his debut album In Colour.
