This Fall, The Warehouse Project // WHP 2017 // returns to Manchester with a promising lineup. From September 16th, 2017, until January 1st, 2018, Manchester’s legendary Store Street will be transformed into Europe’s electronic hub, showcasing world-class talent from across the entire musical spectrum.
Known for being one of the UK’s biggest events of the year, The Warehouse Project has been a staple of Manchester’s thriving nightlife scene for over a decade, offering a platform for both pioneering artists and rising talent. This iconic series of events is held annually each year on the outskirts of Manchester’s city centre at the Store Street warehouse [including a few other spots around the city], showcasing an array of genres from urban to grime, house to techno, and everything in between – but for this piece, we will focus solely on the latter.
With over 400 artists across 33 events, the lineup can be very overwhelming. So we’ve done the hard bit for you and selected our top Warehouse Project picks. Start planning your WHP calendar with our carefully curated selection of credible house and techno you can’t afford to miss at this years’ WHP 2017.
Please keep in mind that most of the Warehouse Project events are already sold-out (tickets are known to go fast). The organization recommends to check Resident Advisor if you’re looking for second-hand tickets.
