Manchester’s Warehouse Project has announced details of its opening party for 2022, featuring Caribou and Bonobo.

The long-running and highly-acclaimed series of dance music events will return to the Depot Mayfield in the city on August Bank Holiday weekend.

On Friday, August 26, Caribou and Bonobo will play a co-headline set to open the series, with details of the season’s full schedule set to be released at a later date.

Pre-sale tickets for the Caribou and Bonobo opening party will be available at 10am tomorrow (April 27) to those who have attended Warehouse Project before.

General sale tickets will then go on sale at the same time on Thursday, April 28. Find out more info on all tickets for the event here.

Last year, a clubber went viral for trying to gain access to Warehouse Project with a fake “lifetime access pass”.

The pass was shown at the door before the Adam Beyer Presents Drumcode event at the venue on Saturday, October 16. Warehouse Project co-founder Sacha Lord then tweeted about the “impressive effort”.

“A new one last night,” he wrote. “Someone tried to get in, by making themselves a “Lifetime Access Pass to WHP and Parklife.” Caused a bit of confusion, but impressive!”

The pass, which featured an issue date of “03/09/2017” and an expiry date of “00/00/0000”, belonged to an “Ellis Hall”. Text on the pass also read: “This pass grants the holder lifetime access to WHP events & Parklife [Festival].”

Lord has since rewarded the youngster’s ingenuity, tweeting: “Just as an update. I’ve been in contact with the little scoundrel @EllisH4LL and have given him Lifetime Access for effort. Funny genius.”

Hall himself has since tweeted: “Mum I made it”, while also sharing links to articles about his creative stunt and boasting that he “broke the internet today”.
