Need-to-Knows about Movement Detroit:

1. The Box Office

The box office is in a larger and more convenient location: the outdoor plaza in front of Huntington Place, directly west of Hart Plaza at Jefferson and Washington Boulevard. Extended hours, added stations and more personnel will help to get everyone into the festival as quickly as possible.

2. Wristbands

Last year’s VIP wristbands completely sold out and general admission wristbands nearly sold out as well. Order now to avoid any disappointment – and save money.

3. Stages

This year, Movement has five stages, with performers going on stage around 1 p.m. and ending at midnight. Here’s a full Movement Detroit schedule for each stage.

4. After-parties

Bars and nightclubs throughout downtown will be packed. Among the hottest hangouts are Old Miami, Leland City Club, TV Lounge, and the festival’s official closing party at The Marble Bar and Bert’s Warehouse. Don’t miss the official after-parties.

5. Vendors

This year’s vendors will showcase record labels, artisans, festival merchandise, audio gear and clothing, with demonstrations and hands-on interaction.

6. Is there an app?

A free smartphone app is available to download on the iPhone App Store and on Android.
