City Slang: Laneway and Movement link up



The Movement Electronic Music Festival and Ghostly International will combine to host a stage at the St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival Detroit, held at the Meadowbrook Music Festival, on September 14.

Sigur Ros and the National will headline the boutique indie music festival. According to the press release, “The Movement Stage presented by Ghostly International–featuring one of the world's most progressive electronic music festivals and a fiercely independent record label with an irreverent roster –will showcase five new acts added to the Laneway Festival Detroit line-up: MATTHEW DEAR, ADULT., SHIGETO, HEATHERED PEARLS and BEACON.


“In addition to Sigur Ros and The National, the Laneway Festival Detroit lineup spans the globe from Australia to Detroit with nearly two dozen acts, including: The Dismemberment Plan, Solange, Icona Pop, My Brightest Diamond, Run the Jewels, Chvrches and Deerhunter.”

“It’s an honor to collaborate with two of Detroit’s musical renegades,” said Danny Rogers, festival co-founder, about meeting the Movement team with Borazio on their first trip to Detroit over a year ago. “We’ve hoped to make a special splash with these cats ever since.”
