Don’t miss this bona fide Detroit classic. The electrifying, pulsating Techno music festival returns to Hart Plaza over Memorial Day Weekend. Movement, previously known as DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), boasts three days and three nights of nonstop performances from more than 100 artists across five stages. And then there’s the afterparties…
What makes this music festival so special? It’s one of the best in the nation, drawing crowds from all over the country (and the world), to take part in the traditional Techno experience — in the birthplace of the genre. Headliners typical include music moguls and Detroit natives such as The Saunderson Brothers, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, The Belleville Three and Dirtybird’s head honcho Claude Von Stroke (also knows as Barclay Crenshaw). But don’t be fooled. The biggest names in EDM take stage at Movement too. Hart Plaza has hosted notables acts including Skrillex, metro Detroit’s own GRiZ, Testpilot (famous producer Deadmau5’s side gig) and more.
If Techno’s not quite you’re thing, there’s plenty of other genres to enjoy — house, trap, rap, ambient and more. Chill in the riverfront beer garden, check out sponsors and swag, indulge in food trucks dishing local eats, take part in art projects all over the grounds and make sure to take plenty of pictures.
2018 headliners include: Claude Vonstroke, Loco Dice B2B The Martinez Brothers, Wu Tang Clan (25th Anniversary) plus BadBadNotGood, Carl Craig, Diplo, DJ Premier, Dubfire, J. Phlip, Justin Martin, Modeselektor, Rezz, Shigeto, Too Short and many more.
