5 things you need to know about Warehouse Project 2011
- Sep 13, 2011
Get ready for Warehouse Project 2011 with our handy blog on everything WHP11. Here are five things you need to know about Warehouse Project 2011...
5. It’s time to say goodbye. The Store Street venue will be going out with a bang as it launches 32 incredible nights, over the course of 15 weeks, for the its very last season in this industrial space.
4. As WHP returns to Manchester, dance music fans should be warned that tickets are selling out rapidly. The latest sell-out to date is ‘Annie Mac presents’ on Friday 23rd September. Unfortunately you’ve also missed the boat for, ‘Welcome to the Warehouse’ featuring Seth Troxler and Marco Carola; the ‘Crosstown Rebels’ night with Art Department and Damian Lazarus and tickets to the day-long end of Store Street bash were snapped up in a just one day. Fear not! Tickets are still up for grabs for the twenty-six remaining nights. Take a peak at the impressive line-up and get your hands on a pair before it’s too late!
3. If you have never stepped foot in the Store Street venue before or you just can’t wait until it kicks off, check out the WHP in action. Trapped deep beneath Manchester’s Piccadilly Train Station, this incredible urban venue will give you a true taste of the underground.
2. This year’s line-up is better than ever before. Here’s a quick guide of who to look out for this season.
If you’re brave enough, dive straight in the deep-end and watch the trance legend that is Armin Van Buuren. The Dutch DJ and producer hasn’t been voted number one in the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 poll four times in a row for no reason.
Or if you fancy a double-dosage of techno - don’t miss true Viking Sven Vath and British legend Carl Cox team up to deliver a night to remember on October 21st. Usually these two headliners dominate nights single-handedly, so I’m incredibly excited to see what this partnership has to offer.
Remember, remember the 5th of November – but not for Guy Fawkes this year. Get this date straight in the diary because ‘Pryda (Eric Prydz) & Friends’ will be tearing up the WHP, with John Digweed, and special guests.
When news came out that Luciano was headlining the ‘Cadenza’ night, I made sure that I’d be free on the December 3rd. Luciano’s trade relies on groovy and minimal – so a perfect outing before the Xmas festivities starts.
Gareth Emery. From seeing him smash-up the festival circuit this summer, I have now come to realise that an hour long set is never enough. Once your turkey and all the trimmings have settled, get yourself to the WHP for Emery’s ‘all night long’ set on Boxing Day.
1. The exclusive day and night party on January 1st will say farewell to the WHP in style. Although tickets for this event have already been snapped up, it’s still worthy of a mention. Those of you lucky enough to have a pair will witness Laurent Garnier, Derrick Carter and Jamie Jones mark the end of an era!
