Clubs you need to visit before you die: The Warehouse Project, Manchester, The UK

The Warehouse Project is Manchester's premier club series, bringing the biggest names in dance music to the UK city  Manchester.

Founded by the man behind Manchester’s Parklife festival, Sacha Lord, and Sam Kandel, who both had early involvement in Sankeys, The Warehouse Project became a mainstay in 2006. Shifting between a number of venues across the years, and leaving the iconic Store Street venue in 2019, rumours first surfaced of a move to the city’s Depot Mayfield more than five years ago, and last year, the rumours became reality.

In 2019 the series move to its new home at Mayfield Depot – a new 10,000 venue inside a former railway station and Royal Mail depot next to Piccadilly station.

Transformed from an old train station into an industrial rave paradise, the epic mega-venue plays home to 10,000 people each weekend from September until the New Year, bringing in a huge variety of acts. It has also hosted festivals, including Homobloc, and welcomes line-ups from some of the greatest promotions in the industry, such as Annie Mac Presents and Jamie Jones’ Paradise. The main room, Depot, features LED screens and two stacks of seven d&b audiotechnik J8/J12 speakers, and in the last 12 months has hosted such stars as Peggy Gou, Honey Dijon, Flume, Helena Hauff, Chase & Status, Annie Mac, Nina Kraviz, Jayda G, Disclosure and many more. 

The Warehouse Project will return this September for a 12 week run across Manchester.
