Store Street, Manchester

On 20 October, Daniel Avery staged a specially curated rave at the last ever Store Street season of The Warehouse project in association with Crack Magazine.

Hosted in a former air raid shelter nestled beneath Piccadilly train station, the Phantasy label boss brought a programme that was, in his own words, “beyond simply a regular line-up”.

“I didn’t want to rely on a bill of festival headliners, and instead saw this as a way to shout about some of the newer stars in the sky,” Avery said. “This is a collection of artists and DJs who I fully believe in, each doing something unique in the electronic underground.”

With some of the most boundary-pushing and talked about selectors heading up the decks at WHP’s final takeover at the Manchester hub, naturally, we asked photographer Scott Charlesworth to capture its best moments. Moving his lens to the backstage area, he found time to catch up with the artists beforehand, too. Check out his images below.
