Manchester’s Warehouse Project confirms 2021 return and announces first shows

Nile Rodgers & Chic will kick things off in September

The Warehouse Project in Manchester is set to reopen for a string of shows later this year.

The annual live music and clubnight series was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but is now set to make a comeback at the city’s Depot Mayfield in September with shows running through to New Year’s Day.

Nile Rodgers & Chic will play the reopening gig on September 17, with Repercussion Festival, ‘Eric Prydz presents’ and Metropolis among the events which will follow in the weeks afterwards.


“The Warehouse Project’s 2021 season marks the long-awaited return to the dancefloor that everyone has been waiting for: a return to music, to dancing and to weekends,” a WHP press release said. “Defining moments and shared experiences with everyone under one roof again for a full-spectrum of music and cultural immersion.”

Tickets for The Warehouse Project 2021 will go on sale from 10am on Thursday (May 27) here, with the full WHP 2021 line-up set to be announced over the coming weeks.
