The hottest week of the year just got hotter, because it's Warehouse Project line-up announcement time! If you're anything like us you'll have the bubbly on ice and will currently be expecting the delivery of Aldi's finest picnic hamper, ready for a day of celebration and jubilation. We're planning to take the rest of the day off just to sit and scroll up and down the bill over and over on our phones in the park—our fingers clammy with the sweat of packaged prosciutto—in amazement.
Kicking off, as always, at Store Street in Manchester in late September, the lengthy series of parties takes revelers and hedonists all the way through to new year's day, which makes arranging social calendars (and days off work) a breeze. But enough of the pots of olives and plausible excuses, you want to know who's playing, don't you? Well, let's tell you.
Basically, it's every halfway decent act on the planet. From MIA to Matthew Dear, Jasper James to Jeff Mills, Above & Beyond to Fatboy Slim, and Danny Brown to Zomby, the WHP team have got pretty much every genre base covered. There'll be huge parties hosted by the likes of Bicep, The Hydra, and DJ EZ amongst others. But hey, don't take our word for it—check out the entire line up right here.
The Warehouse Project 2016 runs from September 23 to January 1.
