“Without doubt WHP19 has been the most challenging and exciting season to programme since WHP began. As has been the case with every WHP venue that has gone before we don’t really know how long it will be around, so our thought was simply that we need to make the most of it for the time it's available. The space at the Depot is a dream in terms of creating a brand new environment and to collaborate with artists and other promoters in a way that hasn’t been possible before. We’re really pleased with how its all coming together and can’t wait for September.” – Sam Kandel.
To get you in the mood for this stellar series of shows, we have comprised a 10-track playlist of some of the most exciting acts to feature in the calendar.
