2013 was the most recent season for The Warehouse Project in Manchester, as it took over the city inviting a titillating combination of world-renowned clubbing brands spanning a multitude of genres to the huge Victoria Warehouse in Trafford Park. The brands that were the hosts of each event were again a mixture of the cities favourite clubbing events combined with other hugely anticipated takeovers from the likes of Kaluki, Paradise, Annie Mac Presents, Chibuku, Diynamic, Hospitality and Bugged Out! The Warehouse Project have just announced that September 2014 will see a return to Store Street beneath Piccadilly Station, the venue at which The Warehouse Project resided for a wholesome 5 years.
The special one year only return to The Warehouse Project’s spiritual home marks 9 years of Warehouse Project mayhem, a clubbing brand now renowned as one of the best in the world, currently hosting events and festivals in multiple countries and UK cities. Accessed via Store Street, residing underneath Piccadilly Station this iconic venue was the setting for The Warehouse Project’s parties between 2007 and 2011 and the news of the relocation came after much speculation that the club would in fact be moving to Mayfield Depot, just a stone’s throw from the Store Street site. Warehouse Project co-director Sacha Lord-Marchionne commented on the rumours by saying, “We’re still very interested in looking at Mayfield but Store Street is where we’re at for now. We’re really excited.” The news of the relocation was first seen at Parklife Festival that took place at Heaton Park in Manchester last weekend, where large posters announcing the message were posted around the arena seen first by attendees of the festival.
Shortly after the publication of the clubs return to Store Street, the line-up of the first party was announced, provoking more excitement as the 9h Warehouse Project season creeps nearer. Headlining the bill is Warehouse Project favourite and ex RA Number 1 DJ Seth Troxler as well as Carl Craig, Tale OF Us, Jackmaster, Ben UFO & Leon Vynehall amongst others. The opening party of The Warehouse Project will be followed by a the usual 12 weeks of events, again hosted by a combination of the most revered dance music brands the world has to offer. Full line-ups for the following events will be announced mid-July.
