Fans of bass and house music are expected to flock in their thousands to the opening weekend of the UK's largest warehouse venue
By Jon Chapple on 23 Nov 2018
Live Nation’s second venue in Wales will officially launch on Friday 8 March with a show featuring some of the world’s leading bass music artists.
UK bass stars including Sub Focus and Dimension, Jauz and Holy Goof, Sasasas and headliner Andy C will be the first to perform at the new Titan Warehouse in Cardiff, in a night programmed by drum’n’bass promoter Bedlam.
Marc Kinchen’s Area 10 will headline Titan Warehouse following night, joined by a host of house music DJs including Jax Jones, Weiss, Eli Brown and Icarus.
Live Nation was last month granted permission to redevelop the warehouse (formerly Splott Warehouse) into a 10,000-capacity venue, with promoter Sam Bush telling councillors a new music venue would address the “huge demand for music” in the Welsh capital.
The company also operates a second venue, the 5,000-capacity Motorpoint Arena, in Cardiff.
