Manchester’s Warehouse Project ‘going back to its roots’ for 2014

Annual series of club nights will return to Store Street venue from September

The Warehouse Project will “go back to its roots” with a return to Store Street in Manchester later this year, it has been confirmed.

The annual series of club nights in Manchester has been scaled back for 2014 following the death of a 30-year-old man at the club in September last year, while five other people were admitted to hospital after taking a drug believed to be ecstasy.

In place of the larger events, The Warehouse Project has announced a 12-week run at former venue Store Street, where it ran from 2007 to 2011, with Seth Troxler (pictured right), Carl Craig, Tale Of Us, Jackmaster and Ben UFO & Pearson Sound confirmed for the opening night on September 27.

Speaking about their low key return, co-founder Sam Kandel says: “2014 is about WHP going back to its roots. Smaller capacity, more intimate — an opportunity to revisit our spiritual home for one year only before we take the next step. Some might already have heard that there is something very special in the pipeline for 2015, when WHP celebrates 10 years, but before we get to that, one year only back beneath the streets.”

The rest of the Warehouse Project season will run until January 1, 2015 with full details to be revealed in July.
