Movement: 10 Year Anniversary
We are less than a month away until the children of the underground invade Detroit’s iconic Hart Plaza for three intense days of nothing but Techno. 2016 Movement Electronic Music Festival, taking place Memorial Day weekend is set to be one for the record books. We hear this a lot when it comes to festivals or events we attend, but, not many eclipse the ten year mark while still defining itself as a globally recognized festival.
Movement continues to embrace its long-standing tradition of promoting a wide spectrum of up-and-comers, local luminaries, trailblazers and pioneers of electronic music, in the birthplace of Techno. With a legacy such as Detroit’s there is no better place to throw this party. The Festival itself is stacked with some of the finest artists this genre has to offer. The after parties will be legendary, but that’s a topic for another day.
This year the German group known as Kraftwerk will make their Movement Debut. This is a monumental booking for fans far and wide as Kraftwerk has without a doubt paved the way and been inspiration to many artists on this lineup. They will be bringing their acclaimed 3-D experience. They will be joined by Richie Hawtin (Who they gave a 3 1/2 hour time slot to close Movement, which is HUGE booking giving the time slot to close out a historic event), Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex, Seth Troxler, Tale of Us, Chris Liebing, Dubfire, John Digweed, Loco Dice and many many more.
The birthplace of Techno will be honored by hometown performances from Shaun Reeves, Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtis’s for Visionquest’s Five-year Anniversary; Carl Craig and the return of his Detroit Love showcase. Kevin Sauderson brings back his ORIGINS showcase for its third consecutive year while Techno innovators Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald will perform together as the duo, Borderland. A few other notable artists this iconic event will be Caribu and Four Tet, who will make their festival debut as well as Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet will be performing together as Get Real.
The lineup is out, the schedules are set. All we need now is to get through this next month as quickly as possible. This will be an event you can’t miss if you’re a Techno fan. Tickets are still available for Movement’s 10 year anniversary but better act fast as places to stay are filling up fast. You don’t want to be the one who smells like moldy cheese because you’re sleeping in the back seat of your car. Review this beast of a lineup, listen to this awesome movement 2015 set by Gabi and get ready…
