From Manchester to Rotterdam – Rave at The Warehouse Project
As a captivating series of club nights originating from Manchester, The Warehouse Project has gained recognition as one of the UK’s premier club experiences. Hosting internationally acclaimed artists primarily from the electronic music sphere, but also embracing talents from diverse genres, it has become a beacon for pioneering greats and underground talents alike. With an impressive 16-year legacy in Manchester, the iconic WHP has now ventured beyond the city for its inaugural international edition in Rotterdam. Renowned for its unparalleled production, atmosphere, and sense of community, it stands as an unrivaled force in the realm of club culture.
Having had the privilege of being present in Rotterdam, we immersed ourselves in the electrifying experience…
Warehouse Project Rotterdam – the iconic Manchester-based festival establishes itself on international ground with an event that left nothing to be desired. Artists such as Peggy Gou, Mall Grab, and Bicep in combination with a dedicated crowd, filled the warehouse centered in the port of Rotterdam with infectious energy. It felt like the festival finally found its second home, which it hopefully returns to soon again!
Under the impressive high ceilings of the industrial warehouse, WHP was a vibrant weekend full of dancing with the most energetic crowd. I soaked up every second of Mall Grab and Effys captivating set and loved to see the British crowd and energy brought to Rotterdam. A very memorable weekend!
The first international edition of the Manchester-based Warehouse Projects, Rotterdam weekender was a major success. The industrial venue of the RDM grounds near the port of Rotterdam created the perfect atmosphere for a warehouse party, while boat parties in the day-time and after parties at the iconic club Toffler made the whole weekend a fully immersive experience. TSHA, OVERMONO, & Mall Grab were personal favourites from the weekend who all brought an energetic vibe and intensity that had the crowd dancing all night long. We hope this was the first of many Rotterdam weekenders by WHP.

As you enter the doors of the warehouse, you get transported into this old-school-looking rave full of energetic people who are there for one goal only, to dance. The warehouse project exceeded my expectations, it gave me a memorable weekend with my friends that felt like a rollercoaster of energy. As well as the DJs Peggy Gou, DJ Boring and Skream, truly mastering their craft and establishing a dynamic connection with the dancers.
Warehouse Project Manchester’s maiden arrival to Rotterdam waters felt like a match made in heaven. On the shoulders of these two sister seaport cities stood an unforgettable weekend. Pulsating and vibrant, the dock hangar gave home to some banging, memorable sets across the weekend.
Crowds were treated to Bicep giving a rare DJ set in which they reminded us just why they are an all time great, with classy record-digging on display. Among the high standard sets, Skream brought his vintage, priceless energy and Peggy Gou dropped gems to close out the Saturday.
WHP ROTTERDAM was a reminder on how special a weekender can be when artists, dancers and expert organisers all unite under a common goal. Love was in the air.
WHP’s first international excursion blended the UK and Dutch rave scenes to create a unique atmosphere built upon a shared passion.
