After being branded the ‘World’s Favourite Club’ earlier this year by DJ Tech Reviews, The Warehouse Project returns to Depot Mayfield this September for four whole months of day-to-night partying. 

Marking the official start on Saturday 16 September, the season kicks off with Repercussion as it makes its awaited return to the Depot. The party will run across eight stages in the expansive venue, including the Star & Garter pub – which first opened in 1803 – and a huge street party on neighbouring Temperance Street. 

For the first time, Repercussion also extends onto the deserted train lines that sit on the rooftop of Depot Mayfield, with two brand new spaces – a celebration of 25 years of Rush Hour and a cinema specially programmed by i-D magazine – taking the event to new heights.

Joining Repercussions’ line-up is Bicep, who will be debuting their brand-new Chroma show alongside Moderat who are returning to Manchester for their first live show in the city since 2016. House pioneer Kerri Chandler also brings his super rare reel-to-reel set-up to Manchester for the very first time, alongside Jon Hopkins, TSHA (Live) and Biig Piig.

On Saturday 23 September the Worried About Henry x Metropolis sees the largest drum & bass event ever at The Warehouse Project, taking over the entire Mayfield complex with over 100 artists from across the DnB spectrum, including Hybrid Minds, Wilkinson, Hedex, Bou and many more.

The following Friday (29 September) sees long-time electronic party crew Kaluki return for a special birthday show and label showcase. Jamie Jones, Joseph Capriati, Hot Since 82, Solardo, Chris Stussy and more lead the proceedings for this season opener.

On Saturday 30th September, the seminal ‘Welcome to the Warehouse’ show returns for a six-stage takeover with sets from the likes of Honey Dijon, The Blessed Madonna, Mall Grab, Job Jobse, Sherelle, Saoirse and more.

Sam Kandel, Co-Founder of The Warehouse Project said: “Before last year’s WHP run ended, we had already started on our plans for 2023. Now we can’t wait to get back into Depot Mayfield, where we are making significant production changes for this year, all to be revealed when we kick off in September.”

Pre-sale ticket sales for The Warehouse Project 2023 opening season go live on Thursday 25 May from 10am. General ticket sales go live on Friday 26 May from 10am.
