The Warehouse Project unveiled their new location on Trafford Park Road, one kilometre outside of Manchester City Centre, today.
The venue was announced by the team along with the opening night’s party, on April 6, headliner Eric Prydz and Easter Sunday’s Loco Dice.
The underground music event ran successfully for five years below Piccadilly Train Station on Store Street, and finished on New Year’s Day after hosting acts including Dizzee Rascal, Maximo Park, Jamie XX and James Blake.
Sam Kandel of Warehouse Project said: “We’d been [at Store Street] for five years and The Warehouse Project started as a nomadic concept, it was never supposed to take up permanent residence in one space.
“Store Street was amazing but after doing 200 events there we’ve done as much as we can do. This new venue gives us far greater flexibility; we can do amazing underground club shows for 1500 – 2000.”
He added: “There’s also the opportunity when we open up the whole space to do much bigger events and much bigger production shows — things that we could never have fitted into that last venue, both from a financial aspect, because we could never have afforded to put these acts on, and also in terms of space. We didn’t have the stage to do the big production events.”
Tickets start at £25 and can be bought through their website at www.warehouseproject.com or call 0161 832 1111.
