Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 29th May 2024

The Warehouse Project has announced details of its opening season party this autumn, with brand new stages and a headline performance from Jungle.

And the iconic clubbing series will expand beyond the walls of Depot Mayfield this year, also taking over spaces at the Star & Garter pub, Temperance Street, the Plant Room at Freight Island, and the roof above the venue.

The opening party for The Warehouse Project 2024 season – known as Repercussion – will be headlined by Bonobo and Jungle, along with a massive bill of other talent from the electronic, house and techno worlds.

The day-to-night party takes over three rooms at the enormous building near Manchester Piccadilly, Depot, Concourse and Archive within Depot Mayfield, and will kick off the months-long programme of music that draws hundreds of thousands to the venue.

Set to take place on Saturday 14 September, Repercussion will welcome master of electronic Bonobo, fresh off his Outlier showcase at The Warehouse Project’s first ever Australia edition.


Then British dance project Jungle will round off their enormous world tour at WHP, a couple of months after they’ll headline Sounds of the City at Castlefield Bowl.

The line-up for Warehouse Project’s main stage, Depot, also includes Peruvian DJ, producer and vocalist Sofia Kourtesis; DJ Seinfeld who is known for his sweeping emotive cuts and creative samples; the emerging Austrian-born, Manchester-based salute with an upcoming debut album via Ninja Tune; alongside the mysterious act that has burst onto the jazz-house scene berlioz (DJ); NTS radio host Tarzsa and Mancunian Rich Reason.


The unique 360° booth at Concourse is set to welcome a blend of cross-genre sets, curated by Honey Dijon.

The line-up features Major League DJz who has been referred to as “amapiano’s global ambassadors” by DJ Mag; DESIREE with her soulful cuts and deep African infused house; and Josh Caffé who has crafted an assured reputation in the underground house and techno scene.

All alongside Rhythm Section’s founder Bradley Zero, Parisian DJ/Producer and multi-instrumentalist Chloé Caillet, and The Warehouse Project’s longest-standing resident, Krysko.


Under the archway at Archive, the city’s music venue YES takes over the stage to celebrate contemporary UK club music.

Manchester’s very own Anz is set to lead the way, alongside sets from some of underground heroes Hamdi, Bakey, Love Remain, Aletha, Tañ, and Jim Bane.

Brand new for this year at Warehouse Project will be the On The Roof stage, a loft space with rare views of the Manchester skyline from the rooftop.

The intimate space will welcome a set up hosted by Luke Una presents É Soul Cultura, who will be DJing alongside the likes of deep house pioneer Chez Damier, Chilean artist Paula Tape who returns after her Boiler Room set at Repercussion 2022 and Manchester’s own rising star, DJ and Producer, Joey T.

Luke Una’s curation for É Soul Cultura has became one of Manchester’s staple parties in recent years, throwing in an all-welcome attitude and bringing in the free party spirit into the scene.


Extending the stage to adjoining Temperance Street, Manchester-based party collective Habitat will present their biggest street party with Dutch artist Jarreau Vandal headlining alongside JAEL and Taylah Elaine, plus Habitat residents Yung_omz, AK Gramm, Tone Rarri, and all hosted by one of Manchester’s favourite presenters Faro.

Manchester’s legendary music pub venue, Star & Garter, is set to play host to the city’s newest online community radio station Crop Radio, with a line-up of grassroots acts from in and around Manchester.

Also participating at Repercussion, the Plant Room at Freight Island is another celebration of the expansive local underground heroes. With acts from SNO, Mikey D.O.N, Levi Love, Me Gusta Collective, Sam Redmore & Joe Motion, and Shimrise.
