If you have heard of or been to the Warehouse Project in Manchester you know that the lineup is stellar year in year out, and today is no different as the lineup for 2011 has been announced. Shwing. As expected the lineup for the 12 weeks of fun under a train station is unbelievable! Starting in September the WHP2011 will kick off with a set from DJ Shadow in his Shadowsphere on September the 17th. The madness will end on January First with New Years Day party aka a "seventeen-hour marathon taking us into 2012." The New Years day show is already sold out even though the headliner is yet to be announced!
Through from September until December Manchester will be graced by the likes of James Blake performing a live set, The Horrors will also curate a night along with the masked man SBTRKT spinning some tunes one night. Cut Copy will perform along with Nero, Calvin Harris, Skream & Benga not to forget Jamie XX who will also be performing to the pumped up crowd. In short it's the best thing you can do every weekend until 2012 in Manchester by far, and I for one will be snapping up some tickets for numerous nights ASAP. If you don't mind getting sweaty with some like minded people whilst watching sets by some of the worlds most talented record spinners, Warehouse Project is where you need to be. For full details and dates along with tickets you can head on over to the official site.
This years events will truly be the end of an era for the WHP as it will be the last time the Store Street location is to be used. In a statement the organisers said:
“After five incredible years beneath the streets, the last ever Warehouse Project event at Store Street will finish in the early hours of January 2, 2012. Within 48 hours all evidence that WHP ever existed in that space will be gone, nothing remaining to give any indication that hundreds of thousands of people passed through those doors. The idea was always to keep things fresh. And while The Warehouse Project certainly found its first proper home in this venue, it feels like when the curtain comes down on the 2011 series it will be time to shake things up again. Exactly how, where and when the WHP will return is not yet set, but one thing for sure is that this is The End of Store Street."
Year on year the organiser put on a great show and the lineup never disappoints. I think 2011's shenanigans will be one for the books. DOn't miss out and grab your tickets quick or regret it for the remainder of the year!
