Movement Detroit is just around the corner, and this year the Motor City is peppered with more parties than ever. We have decided to save you the time and effort by grouping them all in one comprehensive guide to help you choose and plan your weekend with ease.

The list is sorted in order by day, with events displayed alphabetically. While most are after-parties, there are a few day parties too which are clearly marked to avoid confusion. The 6AM staff combed through the entire list and selected favorites that we recommend based on years of experience traveling to Detroit for Movement weekend.

Please be aware that some lineups are still TBD and some parties are altogether still yet to be announced. We will be updating this list daily to ensure it’s complete for your use. When preparing for your trip to Detroit, ensure you also take a look at our expansive City Travel Guide for tips on how to get the most out of your stay.

Editor’s Note: If you are looking to get your techno on before the festival even begins then look no further than the return of this exciting collaboration between Chicago-based Oktave and Detroit’s very own Blank Code. Last year the party delivered some of our favorite sets of the weekend including powerful driven performances by Paula Temple, Shifted and Gabi. This year the lineup is just as exciting, with key players from the LA, Chicago and local techno scenes all scheduled to play alongside high-profile guests Function and Anthony Parasole. Originally Orphx was scheduled to play, but due to visa issues attendees will instead see extended sets by drumcell, Function and Anthony Parasole.

Editor’s Note: While Populux is one of the newest venues in Detroit’s vibrant and expanding electronic music scene, a similar statement cannot be made for the artist chosen by Paxahau to officially kick off Movement weekend.

Event RSVP: Facebook
Editor’s Note: While Maceo Plex has been a fixed name during Movement weekend for years now, this will be the first time his Ellum label touches down in Detroit for a dedicated showcase. Although not much has to be said about him as a headliner, we can definitely stress both his strength as a label head and penchant for spotting great talent. Job Jobse is one of the most consistent in-form touring DJs of the moment, and in Convextion, North Lake and Maars the night has three exciting fresh acts for you to discover.

Oh yeah, and there’s a super secret live show yet to be announced too…

Editor’s Notes: Every once in a while I still think back to the four magic hours when Kenny Glasgow, then 1/2 of No. 19’s Art Department, battled it out with Shaun Reeves of Visionquest for what remains one of my favorite Movement after-party sets ever. Two years later, the two labels are getting back together with Paradigm Presents once more for what is undoubtedly going to be one of the weekend’s highlights. The lineup is now out and it promises to be one hell of a party. See you there!

Editor’s Notes:  We gave this our seal of approval before the lineup was even announced. Why? Because we know Dirty Epic and Apothic won’t let you down, a promise we make based on experience and an uncompromising ethos that underscores music before anything else. Last year’s lineup featured an extended live set by Atom™ & Tobias, an extended performance by Derek Plaslaiko b2b Mike Servito and a live set by Move D b2b Jonah Sharp. In 2014 we closed out the weekend with a mind-blowing set by Voices From The Lake at Anthology, again highlighting the type of phenomenal acts you can expect for the night. The lineup has now been released, highlighting how right how predictions were. Expect a night of cutting edge driving techno!

Need I Say More XI (Day Party) 6AM Pick

Artists: TBD (Announced week of)
Venue: Old Miami | 21+
Address: 3930 Cass Ave., Detroit, MI 48201
Time: 7:30am – ?
Tickets: $10 cash at the door
Event RSVP: Resident Advisor
Editor’s Notes: The OG Visionquest foursome has been putting together this Memorial Day Party for 11 years now, transforming Old Miami into one of the hottest venues of the entire weekend. Lineups are always released week of, but that doesn’t stop thousands of industry and music fans alike from spending the majority if not the entire Monday on the patio of this small dive bar. Lines get pretty long, so either arrive early around sunrise or expect to wait up to an hour and a half to get in. While just a rumor for now, we hear that Blkmarket Membership out of NYC will be involved in some capacity this year.

 

Tale Of Us

Official Movement Closing Party 6AM Pick

Venue: Masonic Temple | 18+
Address: 500 Temple St, Detroit, MI, 48201
Time: 11pm-?
Tickets: Flavorus
Event RSVP: Facebook
Editor’s Notes: Paxahau’s Official Closing Parties for the weekend are always a blast, and this year it will be up to two Life & Death and Innervisions duos to lead the charge. Tale Of Us and Âme are assured crowd pleasers, and seeing them close out the weekend at the Masonic Temple could mean freeing up some of your schedule at the festival to see other artists. Two birds with one stone perhaps?

Editor’s Notes: Something Different than… Old Miami? There is no doubt that this lineup is quality and while Old Miami’s popularity won’t be affected, the arrival of Something Different may give everyone a little more dancing room (and shorter lines?), regardless of the day party they choose to go with.
