“The annual Memorial Day weekend marathon is a necessary pilgrimage for fans of Detroit music and those looking to get a grip on the bubbling US underground.” Billboard
“Movement is techno history in the making.” Dancing Astronaut
Three live performances announced so far have me anxious to see the rest. I’m always looking forward to live sets when it comes to a techno festival. Besides a great set, I love the addition of different musical equipment and incredible production.
What grabbed my attention most from this teaser lineup is I get to see Amelie Lens at a festival. This will be my first time attending Movement and I get do dance with some of my favorites like Hot Since 82 and Chris Lake. If this is just a teaser I can only assume the rest of the lineup will be wild.
The lineup teaser also features UK dance music pioneers Orbital for their first live appearance in Detroit in almost 20 years. This also marks the duo’s first-ever performance at Movement. Orbital have laid the groundwork for today’s live shows by performing such anthems as“Halcyon,” “Belfast,” and “Chime” on a cadre of studio gear in epic fashion. There is no better platform to expose a new generation of electronic music fans to the historical relevance of this incredible act than at Movement.
Detroit’s very own Danny Brown, DJ Bone will be playing, as well as Detroit Techno legend Robert Hood performing as Floorplan – live. British House sensation Hot Since 82 will also take the stage.
Other notable first-time Movement performances include: Amelie Lens, Chris Lake, DJ Nobu, Heiko Laux and Stephan Bodzin – live. More names will be announced in early 2019 on Movement’s official website and social media channels.
Each year on Memorial Day weekend, thousands of people from across the globe gather in the birthplace of Techno to celebrate the heritage of Detroit and its musical influence over countless generations, new and old. Movement Music Festival is one of the longest-running dance music events in the world, committed to showcasing authentic electronic music and providing an experience unlike any other. The festival takes place in Hart Plaza – Detroit’s legendary riverfront destination.
