It is revealed: Movement 2017 lineup phase one; Carl Cox headlines Monday!



OK friends, the moment you've been waiting for has arrived, and we have the first batch of close-to-70 confirmed artists for Movement 2017 — which takes place at Hart Plaza, Detroit, on Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 27-Monday, May 29. Three-day weekend passes are now available at both VIP and general admission rates at

The main headliner on the main stage for Monday has been revealed and it's none other than British house legend Carl Cox. Another super exciting development is the Movement debut of the Belleville Three (which, as well know, is Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson). So, they've really got dance music history sewn up, as you'd expect. In addition, Death in Vegas, Audion, Danny Brown, Nicole Moudaber, Earl Sweatshirt, and Adam Beyer are part of the initial lineup.
