The closing weekend of MIF15 was highlighted by a huge celebration of two ten-year anniversaries. MIF launched with Gorillaz: Demon Days Live in 2005, the same year that The Warehouse Project held the first of their now-legendary parties in the city. At the atmospheric Mayfield Depot on the final Friday of MIF15, Four Tet (aka Kieran Hebden) gave a rare live performance focused on tracks from his wildly acclaimed 2015 album Morning/Evening. Then, on Saturday, DJs Carl Craig and Mike Banks topped a stellar bill at a 12-hour extravaganza that ran into the small hours of Sunday morning. Happy birthday to us!

‘The Warehouse Project’s collaboration with MIF… sent a strong message out to those who doubted or denied electronic music’s place within contemporary art and culture’ Resident Advisor

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and The Warehouse Project.
