Behold: the mastodonic line-up for this year’s edition of The Warehouse Project.
Operational since 2006, the Manchester-based club series runs for three months from September onwards – in part, we imagine, because there’s probably no top-tier DJ that hasn’t already been booked to play come December. The 2013 line-up is their most impressive to date, with over 25 nights of extremely big names and canny bookings on offer.
As ever, there are a string of impressive artist-curated events. Four Tet and Caribou will top a bill that also features Thom Yorke, DOOM, Madlib and Joy Orbison. Julio Bashmore, meanwhile, will bring along the likes of Laurent Garnier, Derrick Carter and Motor City Drum Ensemble for his event. Disclosure, Annie Mac and Rudimental are among those also playing curator over the run.
The usual string of mega-name DJs will also be touching down, with Seth Troxler, The Chemical Brothers, Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin, Jamie Jones, and Armin Van Buuren variously topping bills throughout the Autumn. There’s also a redoubled emphasis on live events, with The Knife, Phoenix and Hot Chip all pegged to play.
Further stand-outs on the list: a killer Now Wave night with Rustie, Jamie xx, Captain Murphy and John Talabot; a 50Weapons showcase led by Moderat, Pantha Du Prince and Dopplereffekt; and Heidi‘s “Jackathon”, aided by Jackmaster, Kerri Chandler and Cajmere.
The full programme is below. Head to the Warehouse Project website for tickets and further information.
