Mercury Prize nominee slowthai and UK chart topper Fredo will be headlining the new collaborative event between Highsnobiety and The Warehouse Project!
Celebrating the best of British alternative music, rooted in rap, grime and hip hop, the show will take place at the newly opened Mayfield Depot in Manchester on 7th December. Co-Curated by The Warehouse Project, and Highsnobiety’s globetrotting music project Highsnobiety Soundsystem, the collaborative event will feature a host of as-yet unannounced cultural and experiential activations alongside the cutting-edge music lineup.
The newly opened Mayfield Depot is just a stone’s throw from the The Warehouse Project’s previous home in the Store Street arches beneath Piccadilly Station. It is another reclamation of disused industrial spaces that see’s The Warehouse Project continue to preserve and develop Manchester’s rich rave heritage.
Fredo, who scored his first UK Number One with ‘Funky Friday’ single last year, and slowthai, who will fly into Manchester in December from a US arena tour with Brockhampton, lead a lineup composed primarily of young artists set to define the next generation of contemporary British music.
Fellow rappers Flohio, CASISDEAD, and Kojey Radical all feature, as do local MCR heros Children of Zeus and 2019’s undisputed DJ of the year Tiffany Calver. Manchester based producer and visual artist Murlo joins to present a very rare audio/visual performance, and closing the night be a DJ set from Mike Skinner of The Streets – an artist credited for paving the way for alternative British rap back in the early 2000’s.
