Movement Festival this year makes its way back to Detroit during Memorial Day Weekend from May 24-26. Poised to be as big of a success as last year (check our coverage), the festival has just announced their Phase I talents. Now in its ninth year, Movement has emerged as a haven for all veteran dance music enthusiasts, and this year’s lineup does not disappoint. With artists like Richie Hawtin, Pete Tong, Carl Cox, and Loco Dice, the festival brings major headlining punch, while also showcasing some local talent — and this is only Phase 1.

Heading to Detroit next weekend for Movement Electronic Music Festival? Get in the deep mindset with a promo mix from the very wonderful Laura Jones. 2012 was undoubtedly a break out year for the Leftroom devotee, but 2013 will certainly be her year to shine. She exploded into the public consciousness with “Love In Me,” and since then it’s rumored her DJ set at the opening party for Circoloco in Ibiza stunned an entire energetic main room. Although she’s relatively new to the scene, her depth of knowledge and maturity in production is respectable, almost head-scratchingly amazing at times. No tracklist on this yet, but you can catch her next Monday, on Memorial Day, at the Beatport Stage at Movement for a 1pm set time.
With May upon us and Memorial Day peaking over the horizon, Movement Detroit has given yet another reason to start counting down the days. The festival announced its official set times this week, giving fans ample time to decide how best to divvy up the three days and 36 hours of techno-driven beats. With the first three batches of tickets already sold out, head here to grab your tickets today. Full lineup with set times below the break.
As techno’s finest American festival, Movement Detroit, draws nearer and nearer, the festival continues to pull the tricks out of its proverbial sleeve for excitable fans ready to travel to the genre’s birthplace on Memorial Day Weekend.
Partying in Motor City just got a bit better: Detroit Movement Electronic Music Festival has just announced the second wave of artists for its Memorial Day Weekend techno-leaning festival. Phase 1 gave us Ben Klock, Carl Craig, Derrick May & Kevin Saunderson, Digweed, and Hawtin. Phase 2 kicks off the next round with Brodinski & Gessafelstein, Ellen Allein, Louie Vega, Moodymann, Stacey Pullen and even bassier choices like Paper Diamond, Gramatik, and Griz. No word on whether there is a final phase to be announced, but if you’re already convinced, pick up your tickets here.
(Protip: this festival isn’t going to break the bank — a three-day pass is only $79!)
