Getting bigger and bigger each year, these club nights have cemented their place into the iconic Manchester music scene.

Expanding its horizons and introducing the by now iconic Parklife Festival—the WHP’s sister event which started in 2013؅—the WHP moved to a new home at the Mayfield Depot. Taking a look at the AW21 season line-up, TA-DAH.TV have picked out some of the biggest names you must be sure not to miss!

New Year’s Day at the Mayfield Depot: The Riot on 1 January 2022

On New Year’s Day, 2022, they’ll be making history at Manchester’s Mayfield Depot, as for the very first time, The Warehouse Project will unite with three other event organisers, so expect the mother of all dance events to be born. Electric Chair, Repercussion and Homoelectric will all be part of this huge gig, so get your tickets nice and early!

With around 300,000 revellers having passed through the depot’s doors by the end of 2021, The Riot wants to celebrate the return of clubbing and its family of followers. An epic day will be on the agenda, with The Blessed Madonna, Krystal Klear, Jayda G, Gilles Peterson, Shanti Celeste, Moxi, Horsemeat Disco, DJ Paulette, and loads more waiting in the wings to spin some proper bangers.

Rolling from day into night, the guys behind Escape to Freight Island will be back, offering brilliant nosh and bevvies from their visionary food market. This is where you’ll be able to recharge to keep going throughout the night—it’s going to be wild!

The Warehouse Project, for Those Who Don’t Know

Taking us back just over a decade, 2006 was the year the Warehouse Project began. Started as a joint venture by Sacha Lord and Sam Kandel, who both had involvements with the Sankeys nightclub (also in Manchester). Moving from several spaces, the organisation has put down roots in various areas of the ‘Capital of the North’. From the disused Boddingtons Brewery in Strangeways to an old air raid shelter under Piccadilly Station, to its current location at the Mayfield Depot.

Since its beginnings, the club has played host to a number of internationally acclaimed DJs, including the likes of Annie Mac, Fake Blood, Pete Tong, Armand Van Helden, Carl Cox, and Richie Hawtin. As well as big musicians such as Foals, The Prodigy and Manchester’s very own Happy Mondays, there isn’t a music act out there worth their salt, that hasn’t played the WHP. Watch the brilliant exclusive interviews on TA-DAH.TV’s music channel, and on YouTube too, where the ‘Oldies, but Goodies’ are still showing. The nice thing about the WHP philosophy is the fact that they pull along fresh talent, giving them a platform, alongside established artists. That’s just great…

The Warehouse Project is award-winning and is recognised across the UK, and globally, as one of the most popular clubs. In 2007, The Warehouse Project was voted by Mixmag as the best club in the UK, later crowned the Best Club Series in 2013 by DJ mag. So, check out their programme online and get your tickets now!
