Batty Knee Dance
For those of you who aren't familiar, I'm from Manchester (UK), and so is The Warehouse Project. It's been going since 2006 and is what can only be described as a 3 month orgie of great music. In it's time it's seen the likes of Hot Chip, Deadmau5 & M.I.A pass through it's doors.
This year will be the last at it's founding venue, Store St. So it's going to be absolutely huge. WHP posted the following on their site:
"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 48hrs 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. 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.
This last party will take the form of a seventeen-hour marathon taking us into 2012.
Thank you to everyone who has made it so special."
