Manchester's The Warehouse Project reveals names for WHP19 at new home, Depot
The Warehouse Project has revealed its full 2019 schedule. The three-month season will feature the likes of Peggy Gou, Goldie, Underworld, Fatboy Slim and more, as well as specially curated events hosted by Annie Mac and Bicep. Talking about the scheduling, cofounder Sam Kandel said: “Without doubt, WHP19 has been the most challenging and exciting season to program since WHP began. As has been the case with every WHP venue that has gone before, we don’t really know how long it will be around, so our thought was that we need to make the most of it for the time it’s available”.
Manchester’s Warehouse Project takes place from the 20th of September to the 1st of January. Tickets go on sale on the 19th July at 9 am.

The lineup for 2019’s edition of The Warehouse Project has been announced, with Aphex Twin headlining the opening event.
The announcement came a few days after Aphex Twin shared the coordinates of Manchester to Twitter along with a teaser video containing footage of the city from Google Earth. Manchester’s renowned event series will debut at a new venue this September, located in the city’s old Mayfield train station. The new venue, Depot, houses 10,000 people and will open next month.
This year’s WHP season will open with a night curated and headlined by Aphex Twin, featuring artists such as Nina Kraviz, Aleksi Perälä and Lee Gamble Other artists making appearances at the seven events set to take place later this year include Skepta, Disclosure, Flume and Maribou State, among others.
Last year, the project’s organisers announced they would be searching for a new home. According to them, WHP was originally only intended to occupy its former home at Store Street for one season when it returned there in 2014. Four years later, they called time on the arrangement, relocating to the Depot in 2019.
