Held at Depot Mayfield on 8 December, the event will play host to Interplanetary Criminal, salute, Shy FX, Skream and more – with a special b2b from Special Request and Clipz also lined up.

Other names include D Double E – with a live slot – Greentea Selecta and p-rallel. Elsewhere, the Concourse and Archive stages will be graced by acts such as Bakey, Jossy Mitu and Bluetoof (as Blumitsu), Tim Reaper, DJ Flight, Girls Don’t Sync and more.

Speaking on the upcoming takeover in a statement, the fast-rising producer, DJ and vocalist – who won BBC Music Introducing Artist of the Year last winter – said she’s “so buzzin” to curate the first Up Ya Archives night at the venue. “Manchester is a special place to me,” she continued, “and [I] am so gassed I’ve got to book so many of [my] favourite artists and DJs to play.”

This announcement completes the event series’ 2023 season and follows the announcement of other stacked shows over the last few weeks, including Circoloco’s return to Manchester after a five year absence as well as a Skrillex-curated event that is set to host Peggy Gou and Four Tet b2b. The Warehouse Project has also unveiled a merchandise link-up with Jonny Banger – the curator and designer, and Sports Banger founder – for its current season. A limited run of Sports Banger x WHP23 merch items, including hoodies and t-shirts, will be available to buy from this Friday at outstanding 2023 seasons shows with some of the proceeds due to be donated to charity partners.

Pre-sale tickets to the Up Ya Archive takeover on on sake tomorrow (28 September) with a general sale released the following day (29 September). Head to the Warehouse Project website for tickets and reread our Nia Archives interview.
