Manchester Warehouse Project Announces Final Season of Line-ups

By on Thursday, 21st July 2011 at 2:30 pm

Today, Manchester Warehouse Project announced the line-ups so far for their last season of gigs under Piccadilly railway station. As reported last week, they’ve decided to call it a day and will close out their final season at Store Street with a marathon, 17-hour dance night. This penultimate Manchester WHP event to ring in New Year’s 2012 has already sold out, but a “very special guest” has yet to be announced. We wait with baited breath…

As should be expected, the line-ups for autumn and winter 2011 released earlier today include many noteworthy acts, including DJ Shadow (a headliner at this year’s Great Escape who will also be doing a London residency in early September – details here), Radio1’s Annie Mac, Dutch trance producer/DJ Armin Van Buuren, Calvin Harris, Carl Cox, Cut Copy, Nero, Foals and many more. (Gasp!)

Special themed nights include an evening curated by the Horrors on Saturday 15 October, an R&S Records event featuring James Blake on Saturday 26 November (err…on my birthday…hmmm…) and a celebration of 20 Years of Pete Tong on Saturday 17 December. As if these weren’t enough, there will also be rare live appearances by Chic (Saturday the 12th of November) and Aphex Twin (Friday the 18th of November).

Fill your boots with these tickets, ladies and gentlemen, because being the final times you’ll be able to see Manchester WHP as we know it, you know these tickets will go fast. Visit their official site for more details on how and where to buy yours. I’ve noted that even the site design is much more sombre than in past years, favouring a black and grey scheme to no doubt reflect that the end of WHP is nigh.

After the cut: the full details of this final season of WHP line-ups (current as of today).

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

By on Friday, 15th July 2011 at 11:00 am

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.
