End Of The Road For Warehouse Project?

2011 run will be last at Store Street as organisers look to 'shake things up.'

End Of The Road For Warehouse Project?

The organisers of The Warehouse Project have said the 2011 run will be the last in its current Store Street home, underneath Piccadilly Station.

A full line-up for this year's event, which starts on September 17, will be released on July 21.

"Exactly how, where and when the WHP will return is not yet set, but one thing for sure is that this is The End of Store Street."

In a statement, The Warehouse Project said: “After five incredible years beneath the streets, the last ever Warehouse Project event at Store Street will finish in the early hours of January 2, 2012.

"Within 48 hours all evidence that WHP ever existed in that space will be gone, nothing remaining to give any indication that hundreds of thousands of people passed through those doors.

"The idea was always to keep things fresh. And while The Warehouse Project certainly found its first proper home in this venue, it feels like when the curtain comes down on the 2011 series it will be time to shake things up again.

"Exactly how, where and when the WHP will return is not yet set, but one thing for sure is that this is The End of Store Street.

Tickets for the final event on New Years Day will go on sale 48 hours before the rest of the series, at 9am on Tuesday 19th July.  

This last party will take the form of a seventeen-hour marathon carrying on into 2012.

The space used by the Warehouse Project is owned by property firm Realty Estates, led by Yousef Tishbi.

I've had some amazing nights at the WHP, both at Store Street and even in the curly tin sheds at Boddington's. Looking forward to this year's line up... and plans for 2012!

Good. Too much corporate bullsheet for this supposed "warehouse" business. Year 1 and 2 was good, but being forced to drink Budweiser smacked too much of corporate tie-ins not in the spirt of a true warehouse rave!

Although credit to the organisers for being brave in setting this up, and for brining some of the best international talent to Manchester.
