Manchester's Warehouse Project has confirmed full details of its autumn and winter 2019 series, which sees the promoter move to new 10,000-capacity venue Depot following the departure from its previous Store Street base at the start of this year.

Topping the series this year is Aphex Twin, who will kick off the season on September 20 playing his first show in Manchester since 2011. Warehouse Project has also locked him in to fully curate the bill, which will see supporting sets from Nina Kraviz, Lee Gamble, ZULI, SØS Gunver Ryberg, Aleksi Perälä, Rian Treanor, Kyoka and more.

The rest of the season - which runs across September, October and November - will feature Skepta, black midi, Special Request, Leon Vynehall, Joy Orbison and more play the venue, which is a new joint venture between Broadwick Venues (who also own London's Printworks), Vibration Group and The Mayfield Partnership. It officially opens in August.

"What's happening with the launch of the Depot venue is a huge moment for the whole of Manchester," says Warehouse Project co-founder Sam Kandel. "There are a huge number of people and various different institutions and networks working in true collaboration to make this a reality. After nearly ten years of pushing and pulling to make this place base camp for Warehouse Project, it's finally happening. We can't wait."

Tickets for 2019's Warehouse Project season will go on sale this Thursday (June 27) morning. Find more information on this year's series here.
