Located a few minutes walk from the city’s centre, Mayfield Depot (the new home of The Warehouse Project) honours Manchester’s industrial past. Weekend three of the new Warehouse Project kicked off on Friday with All Night Long, a marathon event which saw a seven-hour set from iconic DJ and producer Eats Everything in the 360 dancefloor ‘Concourse’.
While the Depot is the venue’s largest space, the Concourse is a main stage by any other club’s standards. The Concourse offers a floor-level DJ booth surrounded by ravers both front and back and positioned Eats in the centre of the action. Over in the enormous Depot space, Honey Dijon opened to the crowd with her exquisitely curated cross-genre marathon set. Joined by The Martinez Brothers, the Depot was packed out from wall to wall for the duration, holding over 8,000 ravers in the space alone.
Each week we’ll be reporting from the Warehouse Project, speaking to artists on the eclectic line-up every week, seeing what everyone’s wearing on foot, and showcasing the spectacle that is the Depot.
