When: Saturday 16th December 2023

Where: Depot (Mayfield) in Manchester

Two iconic brands in the events space, Elrow and The Warehouse Project, link up for a colossal party this December.

Elrow was born when the founder, “realised people were looking for something special,” saying that ravers don’t just want to go to a club and just watch a DJ but be a part of the show, interact with their surroundings, and play games. 

The theme for this big bash is called 'Delusionville', so it’s about to get super trippy! With over fifteen artists spread across three stages and 10,000 ravers going from 2pm-12am, it’s going to be a mad one. Well, they always are!
