Competition: Win tickets to APE 7th Birthday @ The Warehouse Project, Manchester, 13/10/12 + APE Merchandise
The Warehouse Project has risen over the last six years to near-legendary status. Beginning in an old Boddingtons Brewery in Strangeways, before moving to the otherworldly underground car park space beneath Manchester's main train station and then, in Easter of this year, to the cavernous Victoria Warehouse in Trafford Park, the Project is seen as not just a series of top lineups but also as an experience in itself. It's difficult to talk about clubbing in Manchester without mentioning the Hacienda, and many perceive the yearly 12-week runs of WHP events to be an extension of that vibrancy and creativity that first put The Rainy City's dance music scene on the map.
And yet another staple of Manchester's ever-bristling nightlife is APE; a name synonymous with big raves, eclectic lineups and huge parties hosted at the Warehouse Project. This year's seventh birthday celebrations are no different, and that online tickets for the event sold out more than a week in advance is testament to both the quality of the music on offer and to APE's reputation when it comes to throwing a party. This Saturday's lineup mixes iconic performers across a range of styles, such as Sir David Rodigan MBE, Benga, Shy FX, Jackmaster, DOOM, The Bug, Andy C and DJ EZ, with some of the newer breed of talent, including Deadboy and Redinho, and is set to be an all-encompassing route through the realm of soundsystem and rave culture.
With all this on offer, we've hooked up with APE and the Warehouse Project to offer the chance for two winners to bag plus-one guestlist entry to this sold-out event as well as an APE hoody to pull up over your head for the cab-ride home. To enter, just send your answer to this simple question to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject 'APE Competition':
In what year was the very first Warehouse Project event?
The competition will close on Friday the 12th of October, on which date two winners will be chosen by an independent third party, announced on Facebook and Twitter and notified via email.
