2018 brought us an unforgettable summer. Every day seemed sunny, every weekend spent making memories with friends over an ice-cold beer at festivals all over the country. Yet all good things come to an end. Now, the tent’s packed away for another year, the wristbands have been hacked off and we’ve not even considered using wet wipes for at least a month. But we Danes aren’t ready to embrace a long hygge winter of boxsets and central heating yet. Instead, swap fields for your nearest venue or club and snap up tickets to the incredible live shows coming up this autumn. We’re starting with Manchester’s legendary Warehouse Project, the ultimate antidote to end-of-summer blues. Here’s why…
It’s now or never.
The Warehouse Project is synonymous with its iconic Store Street venue but this year will be its last in the classic location. The huge former air-raid shelter beneath Piccadilly Station is considered to be the spiritual home of WHP and has hosted everyone from Aphex Twin to Disclosure. 2018 is the last chance to feel the magic before WHP moves on next year.
A Manchester institution.
Forget the glory days of the Hacienda. Manchester’s time is now. Like us Danes, it is forward thinking, progressive and always ready to try do things better. Indeed since 2006, the WHP has been considered the best night out in the UK. Open only between September and New Year’s Day, it continues to ensure no one forgets Manchester is the undisputed capital of dance culture.
Turns out the best live acts aren’t ready for hibernation after the festival season either. Instead, they’re heading to Manchester for one final party to end 2018 in style. In three short months, The Warehouse Project will welcome a line up packed with legendary names from dance, hip-hop and electronic including Underworld, Chase & Status, Pusha T, Four Tet, Deadmau5 and Jon Hopkins.
New talent and local heroes.
Curiosity never killed a Danish cat. We are constantly searching for new ways to do things, new places to discover and new people to meet. It’s what led Carlsberg founder JC Jacobsen to brew his first lager. And it’s what makes The Warehouse Project so much more than a brilliant party with the biggest names in dance music. There’s no better place to see the cream of new, British acts all in one place too, including the likes of local hero Gina Breeze, up and coming Anz and the hotly tipped Ross from Friends.
You could go for free.
Does it get any better than that? Enter our competition here and you could be at Britain’s best club night for nothing. All you have to do is order a Carlsberg and hit the dancefloor. And you’ll still be able to afford to go again the following week. And the one after that…
