DETROIT — Movement Electronic Music Festival has announced its stage lineups for this year for Memorial Day weekend and welcomes the newest addition to the festival — The Silent Disco stage, powered by Ford and Sennheiser.
Movement Electronic Music Festival has long been the secret playground for savvy festival fans and underground music lovers from across the globe for one very outstanding reason- the music. This is the foundation of Movement and why, after thirteen years, the festival continues to be the hero of many a dance music fan and artist.
“Fans of Movement have high expectations because we’ve conditioned them to demand it from us. We want them to want more. It’s our passion to bring Movement to life each year and to showcase the artists and people that make it great,” said Jason Huvaere, Paxahau president.
Here are some artists and stage highlights:
Red Bull Music Academy once again delivers a mind-blowing showcase of acts for their Main Stage offering with headliners; Underground Resistance presents: Timeline (live), Richie Hawtin, and Carl Cox -all of whom are primed and ready to take Movement fans to the next level of sight and sound.
Beatport returns with a hybridized stage that is full of electronic music’s most upfront producers. Boundaries will be pushed and minds opened when headliners Claude VonStroke, Maceo Plex, Tiga, Pete Tong, and Boys Noize take to the stage.
New to Movement this year is the addition of a new stage, Silent Disco, which is powered exclusively by Ford and Sennheiser. One lucky fan will get to experience this stage as a performer by way of an open competition through Movement media partners Earmilk and Wavo. The Silent Disco stage continues the musical evolution that has become synonymous with the festival, offering up new talents that await discovery.
Both the Made in Detroit and the Underground stages will bring together icons and rising stars for what many are expecting to be history-making performances. The Made in Detroit stage is solely dedicated to local artists – both up and coming and world-renowned — and certainly features the largest concentration of Detroit talent at a globally recognized festival. The Underground stage brings full-circle every techno lovers dream, the most massive assembly of pure Techno in North America.
Moog Music will be the epicenter Detroit’s earthquakes over Memorial weekend when headliners Action Bronson, Ed Rush & Optical, Just Blaze, Baauer, and DJ Snake bring the noise, and the drop, to Hart Plaza.
