Movement Gears Up For its Annual Techno Pilgrimage With 2017 Schedule
It’s no coincidence Movement happens in the city that birthed techno.
The long-standing Movement Electronic Music Festival released stage and set times for the May 27th-29th event taking place in downtown Detroit’s Hart Plaza.
The Motor City’s annual music festival brings techno-heavyweight Richie Hawtin as the Saturday night headliner with a rare performance of his new Spontaneity & Synchronicity audiovisual show, with The Belleville Three and Nicole Moudaber rocking the crowd prior. On the same night the Pyramid Stage, formerly the Beatport stage, features sets from Pan-Pot, Dusky, Rodriguez Jr., and Coyu. Meanwhile, Detroit Techno icon and original festival organizer Carl Craig rounds out the Saturday night on the Star Gate stage.
Sunday can expect a rare appearance on the main stage from TestPilot (known by many as deadmau5) as Joel gets a chance to rinse more industrial grooves with Adam Beyer and Joseph Capriati warming the crowd up before the evening's climax.
In celebration of 30 years, KMS Records founder Kevin Saunderson hosts the world-renowned techno label’s own stage and features sets from Seth Troxler, The Saunderson Brothers (sons of Kevin Saunderson), Cajmere, Heidi, and Saunderson himself, as E-Dancer. While Resident Advisors 4-time #1 DJ, Dixon closes out the Pyramid Stage the same night with a 3-hour set..
The final night Monday will see house and techno legend Carl Cox close the main stage, with support from Carl Craig and Claude Vonstroke's new hip-hop project under his birth name, Barclay Crenshaw. The RedBull Music Academy stage hosts Detroit’s own Danny Brown. The Pyramid stage comes with supreme selector Chris Liebing and the Underground stage will be closed out with a B2B set by Ben Sims and Truncate.
