Behold, Warehouse Project’s immense 2013 line-up

Need an excuse to make a trip to the UK? This should do: Warehouse Project has just announced the line-up for its 2013 series of events and it is massive. For the eighth year running, the Manchester-bred club series is operating with fairly simple premise: find a big, dingy venue, get a cast of dance music’s best DJs, producers and labels to help curate the line-ups and hold a string of all-night, no frills raves. This year, WHP will host no fewer than 25 exceptionally well put together nights.

So who will Manchester be seeing? As ever, a stack of big name artists have signed on to curate parties: Rudimental, Julio Bashmore, Four Tet & Caribou, Disclosure and Annie Mac have all stepped up to the plate. Over the course of the four-odd months, everyone from Armin van Buuren to Jamie Jones, The Knife, Richie Hawtin, Major Lazer, Boys Noize and the Chemical Brothers will stop by to get behind the decks. It kicks off with an Axwell-helmed opening party on September 27 and doesn’t wind up until January 1, 2014 with a yet-to-be-revealed NYD bill.

“I don’t know what it is, but you feel something different standing on the stage at The Warehouse Project,” WHP veteran Skream said in a must-watch documentary last year (below). “It’s electric.” Behold the full schedule below and if you’re sold, head over to the website for tickets.
