LIFESTYLE: 2 Weekends at WHP. 2 Makeup Looks.


Not sure about anyone else, but I feel like any big festival or event deserves glitter. And lots of it.

For two weekends in a row I have been at Manchester's infamous Warehouse Project, and boy has it been amazing. For those who don't know, WHP is an indoor warehouse event running every weekend from September to New Years Day which churns out the biggest and best techno and house events in the country.

It's warehouse 'no-frills' location is an absolutely incredible venue and in the heart of Manchester, it's an amazing experience. Usually the organisers host most of the DJ line-ups in the main warehouse, situated on Store Street, but they also stretch to other venues such as The Albert Hall for others.

When it comes to price, the tickets range from around £25-£45 if bought from an official retailer- which I think is a complete bargain when you regard what's on offer. Usually around 10 DJs play each event, which all has an individual theme, with around 3/4 DJs being those of big-names, e.g. Carl Cox, Alan Fitzpatrick, Jamie Jones etc.

Personally for WHP 2016, me and my boyfriend attended 4th November MK Area 10 and 12th November Adam Beyer presents Drumcode. Area 10 featured the likes of MK himself, Danny Howard, Shadow Child, Jax Jones and TCTS. Drumcode featured the likes of Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, SCUBA and Ilario Alicante.

Both were insanely good. Although I rate Drumcode a lot more than Area 10. Fitzpatrick sold the show for me.

The nights are long. Last entry being 9 and closure being 5/5:30, so if you're thinking about attending, wear comfortable shoes, it's going to be a long one. But here not only are you getting your money's worth, you're also making the most of a good night.

Only critique I must say is that me and my boyfriend, who is a student and resident in Manchester, bought Drumcode tickets specifically to see Green Velvet- a DJ who rarely does appearances in the UK. It has been a goal of mine to see Green Velvet ever since I live streamed his set from Tomorrowland on YouTube almost 3 years ago. BUT. Typically, he cancelled last minute and a 'replacement' was made.

For anyone who knows Green Velvet, a decent replacement is highly unlikely.

Anyways, we didn't let it put a downer on our night, WHP added Ilario Alicante and Reset Robot to the bill instead which still provided massively and we still had an amazing time.

So now that that little review and summary is out the way. I thought I'd share with you my make-up looks for both events.
