Following its international success in Europe across Rotterdam, Netherlands and Antwerp, Belgium last year, Manchester club night series The Warehouse Project (WHP) will make its debut in Australia in May.

For one weekend, 25-26 May, WHP will take over two venues – the PICA in Melbourne, and Munro Warehouse located in the Sydney Olympic Park. The first wave of artists includes Bonobo, Mall Grab, HAAi, Kelly Lee Owens (DJ Set) and Effy.

WHP co-founder Sam Kandel said, “Following the success of our first international editions in Rotterdam and Antwerp last year, we’ve been having great fun putting more international plans together. Australia has always been somewhere we’ve dreamed of hosting The Warehouse Project.”

The weekender in Melbourne and Sydney will take place simultaneously, featuring global artists alongside emerging Australian talent. Day one in Melbourne and day two in Sydney will see Bonobo bring his international Outlier series to the Australian cities. He will be joined on the day by Australia’s own HAAi, Kelly Lee Owens (DJ Set), Paula Tape, DJ PGZ, and The Warehouse Project resident, Krysko.

Day two in Melbourne and day one in Sydney will host Mall Grab, who will present his Looking For Trouble party for the first time in his native Australia. He will be joined by Effy, Jennifer Loveless, and Australian DJ Dameeeela.

Since 2006, The Warehouse Project has taken place at disused spaces around Manchester, from the early days at Boddingtons Brewery to today’s industrial venue, Depot Mayfield.
