America’s premier underground electronic music festival includes 88 performances for this year’s lineup.
This Memorial Day weekend again, we will see tens of thousands of electronic music lovers flock to Movement festival in Detroit. It is now one of the longest-running electronic music festivals in the world and has garnered tremendous critical acclaim from the likes of THUMP, Resident Advisor, and Beatport. Movement has earned a reputation for pushing the envelope for electronic music and its bold lineups have always consisted headliners like Kraftwerk, Jeff Mills, and Underground Resistance. However, this year, many who have attended the festival in the past have accused Movement of playing it safe by not focusing enough on Detroit and Industrial Techno and choosing to book acts like Diplo, BadBadNotGood, Justin Martin, and Mija and picking headliners like Claude von Stroke and The Martinez Brothers who will be going back to back with Loco Dice. That’s not to say that there aren’t plenty of rare gems in the lineup and with 5 stages to choose from, almost everyone at the festival should find what they crave.
Movement Festival 2018 takes place on May 26-28 in Detroit, Michigan. Book your tickets here now!
You can always expect to find some of the best underground acts at Movement and this year the lineup includes Avalon Emerson, Ø [Phase], Aurora Halal, Antenes. On the lineup, you’ll also find rapidly rising artists like Helena Hauff and Charlotte de Witte alongside well established artists like Laurent Garnier, John Digweed, and Dubfire. Also, many Movement staples like Joseph Capriati, Maceo Plex, and Detroit legends Eddie Fowlkes, Carl Craig and Kevin Saunderson will be playing at the festival again.
Another highlight of the lineup is Wu-Tang Clan who will be headlining the final day of the festival to celebrate 25 years of their existence. All 9 members of the great hip-hop group will be performing. Movement also has Drum and Bass geniuses, Ed Rush and Optical, playing the festival. Those who have attended the festival before will see their favorite stages like the Beatport Stage and the Underground Stage again but revamped.
