While going through the stage lineup and set times for Movement Detroit last week, it occurred to me that this year the festival has booked a great selection of female artists. While there could and should be more, I remained pleased to see that at least when compared to 2015 the presence of women at Movement has grown.

Some of these artists are returning to Hart Plaza, see Nina Kraviz, tINI and J.Phlip, while others will be making illustrious debuts. Some even made our list of Top 15 acts not to miss at the festival.

Regardless, ensure you bear this pool of talent in mind when making your schedules for this coming Memorial Day Weekend!

Mamby to Bring Tale of Us, Loco Dice and Seth Troxler to Chicago’s Lakefront


Last year React Presents – Midwest’s largest dance music promoter – inaugurated Mamby On The Beach on the shores of Lake Michigan.

The idea was different than the rest of the festivals in their portfolio: rather than focusing on EDM and jam bands, Mamby booked indie, electronica and house artists the likes of Empire of The Sun, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, Passion Pit, Art Department, George Fitzgerald and Route 94 and placed them on Oakwood Beach in Chicago’s South Side. For the first time in three years the City of Chicago had another beach festival to look forward to.

This year, the two-day festival will take place July 2nd and 3rd with three large full production stages, and an even bigger lineup to boot. Main Stage headliners include electro-soul artist Chet Faker, underground rap favorites Atmosphere, funky duo Chromeo, the iconic Santigold, experimental pop-rock band Animal Collective as well as other live acts such as Lupe Fiasco and Tycho.

The DJ tent will be just as stacked with talent. Life & Death favorites Tale of Us will be joined by Loco Dice, Seth Troxler and Black Coffee, with Chicago talent representation coming from Derrick Carter, The Black Madonna and Gene Farris. 

See the complete Phase I line-up below.

Sasha and Digweed to Play B2B Set at The Social Festival in September


On April 1st the dance music community learned that two of the scene’s most respected and sought-after pioneers, John Digweed and Sasha, were planning a possible reunion.

Although at first it appeared to be an April Fool’s joke, staff from both camps confirmed the existence of an imminent announcement without providing more information.

Today, we have learned that Digweed and Sasha are set to reunite at Nic Fanciulli’s The Social Festival on Friday 9th September for a special back-to-back performance in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of their album “Northern Exposure.” The festival takes place in Fanciulli’s hometown in Maidstone, Kent in the South of England.

The official announcement, which you can see below, states that the show will be limited to 5,000 customers only. No further information has been provided as to whether the two acts will be playing any other shows in England or elsewhere around the world.

Japan’s Rainbow Disco Club Just Dropped Heavy 2016 Lineup


Rainbow Disco Club is known world-over as Japan’s premier boutique festival, and with good reason. Last year the festival ended up in Resident Advisor’s Top 10 Festivals to attend in May thanks to a roster of artists that blends worldwide talent with the top of Japan’s dance music DJ pool.

The festival moved to its current location at Higashi Izu Cross Country Course in Shuzuoka in 2015, also expanding for the first time to a three-day operation. This new tradition is set to continue between Friday 29th of April and Sunday May 1st this year, with another selection of fine dance music artists set to provide the musical backdrop for the weekend.

Legend Andrew Weatherall will be accompanied by the likes of Nightmares On Wax, who will be playing a DJ set, Gilles Peterson and Move D. A selection of Rush Hour Allstars will also be returning to the festival’s decks  with Antal, Hunee, Soichi Terada and San Proper all set to represent the highly acclaimed label this year. Other local talent comes in the form of Kenji Takimi, Kaoru Inoue, Kikiorix and Sisi, while The Black Madonna is scheduled for an exclusive back-to-back set with the esteemed DJ Nobu. Red Bull is sponsoring a separate stage with a program that includes DJ Funk, Egyptian Lover, Kuniyuki as well as DJ Sodeyama, one our selected artists to watch for 2016!

Movement To Touch Down In Croatia This Summer

Movement Croatia

Movement is expanding to the promised land of Croatia, dubbed by many as the new Ibiza following recent years of festival and party expansion.

Movement Croatia is set to debut this coming July with a large roster of techno and house talent that includes the likes of Sven Väth, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Derrick May, Octave One, Steve Rachmad, Robert Hood, Nina Kraviz, Dave Clarke and Margaret Dygas.

The Movement name has been expanding over the years, taking over the Detroit festivities in 2006 and establishing an Italian version in the northern city of Turin just over nine years ago. 2015 saw the Detroit festival touch down in Puerto Rico for a special Caribbean getaway, with the Italian version of the brand visiting Croatia for a smaller club edition last summer that now turns out was the stepping stone for the festival set to launch this July.

Tisno, 2013

Tisno, 2013

In the last few years, Croatia’s new-found status as a hot spot for electronic music festivities has seen the country benefit from thousands making the pilgrimage over the summer months. Movement Croatia will occur at The Garden Tisno, a 2,500 capacity outdoor venue that has also been home to Sunwave Croatia, Electric Elephant and Love International Festival.

Movement Croatia will offer three stages of indoor and outdoor beachside programming, as well as boat parties, with  a variety of accommodation options that range from air-conditioned apartments to camping and airstream trailers. Individual stages will be hosted by:

Movement Torino Music Festival
Lola ED vs Half Baked
Яeturn powered by Solid-AM
Sunday Breakfast Zurich
