The Warehouse Project announces first ever international event in Rotterdam
In a first for the Manchester party-brand, WHP will welcome Bicep, Kerri Chandler, DJ EZ and more to Europe's largest seaport
The Warehouse Project has announced its new international event kicking off in Rotterdam, Netherlands: The Rotterdam Bank Holiday Weekender.
Echoing WHP's Manchester home Depot Mayfield, the new series will take over a former shipping contsruction site - Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij (RDM), which is located just beside the city.
Taking place next Spring, the first wave of artists has huge headliners including Bicep (DJ Set), DJ EZ, Kerri Chandler, Peggy Gou, Seth Troxler and many more.
Others playing this mammouth weekender that spans across the spectrum of electronic music are Chloé Robinson, DJ Boring, HAAi, Mall Grab, Overmono (Live), Saoirse, Skream and the list goes on.

Also joining these world-renowned names are Gina Breeze, Aletha, Jordan Villa and more The Warehouse Project resident-holders. Boat parties, after parties and other events will be announced soon.
The Warehouse Project has said its decision to expand into Rotterdam is due to the parallels between the Dutch city and Manchester — both sharing a rich industrial past, modernist architecture and enveloping waterways throughout the city.
Sam Kandel, Co-Founder of The Warehouse Project, said: “The Warehouse Project has become an international destination and over the years we have seen a steady influx of ravers from around the UK, then Europe and further from across the globe – especially since things opened up after the pandemic.
"In fact we have been looking for ten years now for the perfect opportunity for an international WHP edition — it feels like it's all finally going to come together in Rotterdam.”
