Sankeys has been synonymous with Manchester forever, and after a long wait the world famous brand returns to its spiritual homeland on Saturday 8th September. Entitled Sankeys… The Return, the sure-to-be-spectacular party will be their biggest yet and lands at the 5000 capacity Victoria Warehouse with a line-up that embodies everything Sankeys is all about.
There has been something truly missing on the Manchester clubbing landscape since Sankeys closed its doors in January 2017. For more than 20, the club had lead the way when it came to underground music culture. It established the city on the world stage with influential brands, DJs and residents bringing people from all over the world to experience its events. Offering the best line-ups each and every week, all playing out in their famously gritty, no-frills home of Beehive Mills in Ancoats, it was a place like no other. The magic of those historic years will be recaptured at Victoria Warehouse, which itself has a real history thanks to hosting special one off events from some of dance music biggest stars, as well as a techno mini festival from the world famous Awakenings and of course a number of Sankeys parties with the likes of Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden.
It is an innovative space dating back to the 1900s with an industrial aesthetic, powerful sound system and immersive production. Sankeys will add their own spin with light and laser shows and ensure the whole venue comes alive with their usual sense of rave spirt. This is their boldest project to date. The line-up to be revealed nearer the time will bring together long time Sankeys favourites and international headliners so keep your eyes peeled.
10% of all profits for the event will be donated to the families of the victims of the tragic Manchester Arena bombing last year.
