Manchester's Warehouse Project events will not take place in full in 2014

Dance music series takes break for one year after death at this year's event

Manchester's Warehouse Project events will not take place in full in 2014
The Warehouse Project in Manchester will not run its usual series of events in 2014, it has been confirmed.

As reported earlier this year, a 30-year-old man died at the venue on September 27, while five other people in attendance at the 5,000-capacity club were admitted to hospital after taking a drug believed to be ecstasy.

In a message posted to the official Warehouse Project Facebook page earlier today (October 23), it was confirmed that the event will not run "as normal" in 2014. "While we look forward to the start of the new year, we would like to announce that the WHP season will not take place as normal in 2014," reads the post. "There will be a handful of special events, but no full series as there has been for the last eight years."

However, The Warehouse Project will return the following year with the post revealing plans for a birthday celebration: "2015 marks 10 Years of The Warehouse Project and we will be ready to do that justice."

Speaking after the death in September, Sacha Lord-Marchionne, Director, The Warehouse Project said: "Everyone at The Warehouse Project are absolutely devastated about the news and our condolences are with the man’s family. We put every possible measure and provision in place during the events and work closely with all the authorities in the planning stages to avoid these terrible situations arising. A police investigation into the incident is now underway."

Disclosure, Rudimental, The Knife and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers are all booked to perform at The Warehouse Project during October and November.
