As the grand weekend of the Movement Festival is approaching, we are diving deeper in being devastated about not going.
Not only the lineup of the festival is great, and the afterparties look like THE parties of the year 2016, it’s also the desire to touch the greatness.
Everything connected to Detroit is cherished in techno community, like a box with childhood treasures and grandma’s photos. That’s understandable, considering that Detroit is the motherland of techno and this Movement festival will be the 10th and that’s huge.
But did you know that the festival itself has started 16 years ago at the same place, but changed a few names before sticking to Movement 10 years ago? Now you do.
So what would we do if we were in Detroit this coming weekend?
First of all, the opening event at “The Works” is a must. The Works is a nightclub that has been renewed just recently and has a perfect sound to host the great lineup:
Music Gallery Four at The Baltimore Gallery
A secret event without lineup and any tips except the place. The Baltimore Gallery is a new art gallery that will host the guests for the second time after the success of 2015’event.
Tresor 25 Years at Tangent Gallery.
Three techno legends – Detroit, Movement and Tresor come together in one place to celebrate 10 years of the festival and 25 years on the club/label.
An epic night with an epic lineup:
