Anticipation levels have reached fever-pitch in Manchester and it's nothing to do with the recent heat-wave. Far more importantly, it's all down to iconic venue The Warehouse Project unveiling its autumn-winter 2013 line-up. Crikey, it's spectacular - it's what Fridays and Saturdays were made for.
Axwell will head up the opening party on Friday 27th September with Armand Van Helden, Mark Knight and many more. The following night welcomes Seth Troxler, Loco Dice, Carl Craig and more - you're getting the picture by now.
More big highlights during the following weekends include Armin van Buuren (4th Oct), a live show from Rudimental (12th Oct - extra tickets released - includes a bonkers 4 hour set from Andy C), The Knife with a Shaking The Habitual live show (25th Oct) and an entire night of peerless electro and techno curated by Julio Bashmore, starring Derrick May, Laurent Garnier, Cassius, Space Dimension Controller and more.
November and December continue the standard - Hot Chip bring the Bestival vibe to the north-west on 1st November with Chic feat Nile Rodgers, 2 Many DJs, Rob Da Bank and more, while Four Tet line-up Thom Yorke (DJ set), Madlib (DJ set) and more on the following night.
Other biggies include Major Lazer, Phoenix, Disclosure (live - extra tickets released), Nero, Netsky, Chemical Brothers and Flying Lotus, all appearing throughout the autumn.
As for New Year's Eve and beyond, you'll have to wait and see! Whoever (whatever) they book, it'll be a clubbing colossus.
Tickets for The Warehouse Project season are on sale [26/7/2013 9:00], priced from £25 - £28.50 upwards. Most are likely to sell out.
WHP13 looks like being the fastest-selling season so far for the club which looked all but buried just a couple of years ago after closing its doors in Stone Street. But now, for the foreseeable future, TWP is located to the west of the city, near metro-stop Pomona - head to any one of these shows and it's likely you'll double the annual amount of passengers who usually get on or off at this stop!
