Movement Electronic Music Festival announced the final lineup for the event this Memorial Day weekend and with great lineups at all six stages, this is going to be the one of the nastiest line ups ever. This three day even will showcase “a wide spectrum of up-and-comers, local luminaries pioneers, and trailblazers in Techno, House, Hip Hop, and more.” Read on to get a break down of who to catch at which stage, with a full list below.
The Main Stage will play host to several of EDM’s favorite acts. Richie Hawton one of techno’s heroes, GRiZ, Art Department, Dogblood – the team up from Boys Noize and Skrillex, and so many more will do their best to bring the house down. The real story of this particular stage is DJ Snoopadelic. That’s right, Snoop Dogg/Lion is unleashing yet another awesome alter ego at this year’s Movement Festival.
Headlining the Red Bull Music Academy Stage, Disclosure is featuring artists such as Eats Everything, Method Man, Octave One, and Keri Chandler. Juan Atkins will also be celebrating 35 years in the business by performing as “Model 500”.
The Beatport Stage will bring us acts Tuskegee, Joseph Capriati, Joris Voorn, and plenty of other hot entertainers for attendees to party their asses off.
The Made In Detroit Stage presented by THUMP is where all of Movement’s hometown heroes will shine brightest. Carl Craig is bringing his notorious showcase “Detroit Love” and Kevin Saunderson will be killing it with ORIGINS.
The Underground stage is where to go to see “some of Techno’s elite talent”. Regis, Ben Klock, Ben Sims, and plenty of other face meltingly good talent will keep the party going strong.
Movement’s shiny new Sixth Stage will host some of Detroit’s hottest new artists. Detroit’s own Sinistarr and Mark 8EN Moss will rock the stage with other acts like Sawn Rudiman, Dilemma, and Calico.
With over 140 acts on the schedule, this is just a small taste of everything Movement will have to offer. The festival has won awards and accolades all over the world and is constantly on lists with titles like “Best Music Festivals to Go to Before You Die” and it’s in our own backyard. Billboard had this to say about the festival:
“Widely embraced by the city where techno was born, Movement remains one of the longest-running independent music festivals in the country.”
