Sankeys recently announced a return to Manchester with a huge Victoria Warehouse show in September on Saturday 8 September. Entitled Sankeys… The Return, the 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.
For more than 20 years, Sankeys aimed to lead the way when it came to underground music culture in Manchester. It established the city on the world stage with brands, DJs and residents bringing people from all over the world to experience its events.
Offering big line-ups each week, all playing out in their gritty, no-frills home of Beehive Mills in Ancoats. The brand aims to capture the magic of those historic years at Victoria Warehouse, which itself has a real history thanks to hosting special one off events, as well as a techno mini festival from Awakenings and a number of Sankeys parties with the likes of Basement Jaxx and Armand Van Helden.
It is a 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, aiming to make the venue come alive with their sense of rave spirt.
10% of all profits for the event will be donated to the families of the victims of the tragic Manchester Arena bombing last year.
