Starting afresh and beginning 2022 with purpose, the team behind Manchester's seasonal superclub brand, The Warehouse Project, have announced a party of epic proportion to reign in the new year.
Marking a new first in Manchester’s abundant music history, party collectives Electric Chair, Repercussion, Homoelectric and The Warehouse Project will come together to present The Riot, rounding off an exciting and truly remarkable return season at the massive Depot Mayfield.
Almost half a million eager party revellers will have passed through the Depot Mayfield gates when the clock strikes midnight on new years eve, and in honour of this incredible return to the dancefloor, The Riot will welcome some of the biggest and most admired talents that have graced events throughout the season to see out 2021 in style.
Taking punters on a musical experience, rolling from day into night, the likes of The Blessed Madonna, Krystal Klear, Jayda G, Todd Terje, DJ Seinfeld, Gilles Peterson, Shanti Celeste, A Love From Outer Space and many more will all take to the one's and two's, each bringing a unique flavour to proceedings. Back to backs come from Hunee and Palms Trax, Moxie and Leon Vynehall, plus Erol Alkan and Ivan Smagghe. There'll also be a very special three hour set in the venue's iconic Concourse area from Grammy-award winning house specialist, Louie Vega.
Repercussion, the festival that opened The Warehouse Project season, has also been confirmed to make a return to one of the city's most emblematic pubs, The Star & Garter on January 1st. Taking over two floors, selectors Horse Meat Disco will be joined by residents Krykso and Greg Lord in the loft, with DJ Paulette, Nancy Noise and Abigail Ward supplying vibes downstairs.
A further two recently announced parties will take place in the run-up to the ultimate day of the year. UK dance music royalty, Fatboy Slim will see in the year at a massive New Year’s Eve party, alongside tastemaking legend and DJ extraordinaire, Annie Mac. Noteworthy support acts include Hannah Wants, Yousef, Redlight, My Nu Leng and Emerald.
On 18th December, Michael Bibi Presents Isolate, playing unsupported in the Depot, with even more special guests yet to be revealed.
Can't make any of those dates? Don't worry! There are still a number of mind-blowing Warehouse Project parties yet to come. Set perform in front of up to ten thousand ravers over the coming weeks are influential acts the likes of Honey Dijon, Avalon Emerson, Jamie XX, Bicep, Overmono and The Chemical Brothers.
