For its Australian sojourn, The Warehouse Project will commandeer two iconic venues: Melbourne’s dynamic PICA and Sydney’s Munro Warehouse nestled in the heart of Olympic Park. Across these two cities, a symphony of sound awaits, with a lineup curated to captivate and exhilarate.

Day one in Melbourne and day two in Sydney will be headlined by the internationally acclaimed Bonobo, presenting his celebrated Outlier series to Australian audiences for the first time. Joining him on this sonic odyssey will be a cadre of talents including Kelly Lee Owens, HAAi, Paula Tape, DJ PGZ, and resident maestro Krysko.

As the sun sets on day two in Melbourne and rises in Sydney, Mall Grab takes the reins, bringing his legendary Looking For Trouble party to his native shores. Joining him will be Effy, Jennifer Loveless, DJ Dameeeela, and more, promising an unforgettable night of beats and bliss.

Sam Kandel, Co-Founder of The Warehouse Project, expressed his excitement: “Australia has always been somewhere we’ve dreamed of hosting The Warehouse Project… We are also so grateful to Bonobo and Mall Grab, and all the artists both international and domestic who will each play a special part of this WHP Australia debut”.
