Manchester Warehouse Project Calls It a Day: Last Dance Night Will Ring in 2012

For the last 5 years, Manchester Warehouse Project has been bringing amazing bands from all over the globe to their amazing underground, subterranean location under Piccadilly train station. But this dance night institution in the North have now announced that the autumn/winter 2011 gigging season will be their last. A special 17-hour marathon dance night has been planned as the penultimate WHP event and will ring in 2012 at Manchester Store Street in style. Tickets for the 2012 goodbye celebration will go on sale next Tuesday (19th of July) at 9 AM.

The full “WHP11 Plan”, to run from the 17th of September 2011 to the 1st of January 2012, will be revealed to the public on Thursday the 21st of July. Considering this is the last gigs of a series of awesome gigs, one can only guess the line-ups for this final batch of gigs will be absolutely incredible.

I know I’m pretty depressed about this news because even though I’ve never been to a single WHP night. Many friends of TGTF have either played or attended WHP as punters and always had wonderful words about the franchise, so this really signals the end of an era. What comes next for the WHP promotions crew? Everyone’s keeping mum at the moment, but I’m sure there will be something brilliant announced down the road. Our hats off to everyone at WHP HQ.
