The Warehouse Project 2006

Between Friday 6th October and Monday 1st January ‘The Warehouse Project’ will be staging 12 weeks of bands, DJs and live music. The venue has been revealed as Manchester’s iconic Old Brewery (formerly the Boddingtons Brewery).

The site actually consists of two warehouses, one slightly larger than the other. The larger of the two was where they actually used to make the beer and was known as the racking hall, the other is the cold store where the kegs were stored (Now named ‘The Box’). Most events will feature both, however one or two special intimate events will just take place in The Box.

The moment it all kicks off has now actually been brought forward by 24hrs with Public Enemy the first to headline the stage in the Racking Hall. After this comes 25 events, with artists from all over the world performing during a 12 week period.
