Every Monday & Thursday Cigarette Sounds will be focusing attention on each of the WHP16 nights – bringing in depth venue details, who-is-who artist profiles and thoughts and feelings on each WHP night.
For music junkies in the North West, autumn means one thing – the return of Warehouse Project. The 2016 edition of fifteen weekend-long music celebrations has finally been revealed, with tickets for all shows expected to shift by the end of the week. It’s back, bigger, better and more desirable than ever before. For fifteen weeks the city is ours – WHP16.
In its tenth year, WHP have pulled out all the stops to make 2016 one to remember. High-profile headliners have been cast, such as: Nina Kraviz (WHP & Four Tet), Hannah Wants (What Hannah Wants) and DJ EZ (Ram Jam & DJ EZ), as well as artists such as Skepta and Kurupt FM curating and presenting their own line-ups.
The ‘WHP16 Launch Party’ and ‘Welcome To The Warehouse’ are the first two WHP16 shows, taking place on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September. Both of these shows will be held at WHP’s ‘Spiritual Home’ of Store Street – a venue which previously served as an air raid shelter – and will be headlined by M.I.A (23rd) and Adam Beyer (24th).
Although Store Street will be the main venue for WHP16, shows will also be held at various other Manchester music venues. These stages include: The Albert Hall (Moderat, Knee Deep In Sound, Fatboy Slim) Old Granada Studios (DJ Shadow, Autechre) and Manchester Academy (Chance The Rapper).
WHP16 concludes with a NYE and NYD show at Store Street. The lineup for neither of these shows have been revealed yet however, with the 2015 shows seeing acts the likes of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Jamie Jones playing – 2016 is sure to kick off.
