The Warehouse Project are now in their tenth year and, to celebrate, the monolithic Manchester institution have created what is arguably their biggest lineup ever spanning over two days, with no compromise on showcasing the most legendary figures in dance music from eras past and present. The events will take place as a part of the Manchester International Festival, and sees the previously unused Mayfield Depot (opposite Piccadilly Station) transformed into a temporary warehouse venue before the building gets demolished in a few months time.
The Friday night is a shorter concert which sees Four Tet performing his full live show, with support from American composer Tyondai Braxton and a rare performance from Koreless. The Saturday is a full twelve-hour party starting at 2pm, which features some of Detroit’s greatest musical exports, such as Underground Resistance‘s Mike Banks playing with Carl Craig. Another pioneering group, Octave One are also on the bill, whilst Kyle Hall and Maurice Fulton round up the artists from across the pond. The fun continues with appearances from Germany’s DJ Koze and Mr Ties, and a whole host of the UK’s finest, including DJ sets from Joy Orbison, Midland, Space Dimension Controller, and live sets from Dark Sky and the elusive Paranoid London, amongst many others.
