Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival Grows, Marks 10th Anniversary


As Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary over Memorial Day weekend, the event continues to grow and gain national recognition, with artists such as Kraftwerk and Caribou headlining this year’s festival.

“Looking back at how much the festival has grown over the past 10 years has been an incredible experience,” says Jason Huvaere, founder of Paxahau, the producer of Movement. “As the festival landscape continues to evolve, Movement’s founding principles and creative vision remain true to the music culture that inspires us.”

Huvaere says Movement, to be held May 28-30, will feature more than 120 performances across six stages at Hart Plaza in Detroit. Paxahau, based in Detroit’s Corktown district, took over operations of the festival in 2006.

The German electronic music band Kraftwerk will make its first ever appearance at Movement on May 28, featuring the group’s 3-D show. Other highlights include Detroit native Carl Craig’s Detroit Love showcase, with performances by Stacey Pullen, Matthew Dear, La Fleur, and Paul Woolford. Dubfire will bring his live spectacle dubfire:live HYBRID to the main stage on May 29, while the German electronic music duo Modeselektor will close out the festival on May 30.

Movement has received recognition from The New York Times, as one if its 50 essential summer festivals in 2015; Jetsetter magazine’s 16 of the summer’s best music fests in 2016; and Rolling Stone’s 50 must-see music festivals of 2015.

Single-day tickets start at $75, and three-day weekend passes are also available.​
