This coming May, Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit is celebrating 10 years of life at the core of the birth city of techno with a line-up that brings together legends of the famed genre, popular up-and-comers in the underground world, current house favorites from across the globe and a small roster of signature eclectic acts.
This year, those making the pilgrimage to Detroit will be witnessing the first ever Kraftwerk 3D performance at Hart Plaza, with Modeselektor and Dubfire’s Hybrid show both set to complete the headlining spots at the festivals’ main stage over the weekend. Paxahau has also decided to change things around a little, adding different sounds to an Underground Stage that is usually chock-block full of hard techno, also placing Richie Hawtin’s PLAYdifferentlyShowcase at the Beatport stage by the Detroit River – with Richie closing out the night with a two-hour set – and inaugurating the first-ever Acid House devoted stage at the festival with the likes of DJ Pierre, Boys Noize and Nina Kraviz all set to perform.
The stage programme and set times are now out, allowing attendees to plan their entire Memorial Day Weekend with as much ease as possible. While there’s bound to be plenty of conflicts with Phase I and Phase II lineups of such size, there is no doubt that as always the entire weekend will be filled with top-notch music and amazing performances.
