Detroit's Movement Festival announced its full 2020 lineup on Wednesday, and it's looking like this year's fest, set once again for Memorial Day weekend at Hart Plaza, will be a doozy.

Recently announced acts include British techno group Underworld, a veteran act formed in 1980, which is playing its first live show in Detroit in more than 20 years. This also marks the duo’s first performance at Movement.

"Detroit’s importance in the evolution and history of electronic music is unquestionable, and has been hugely influential to us," Underworld
founding members Rick Smith and Karl Hyde said in a statement. "We're very excited to be returning after twenty one years away to dance with you again."

Other notable acts include deadmau5 (performing as Testpilot), TOKiMONSTA, Jamie xx, A$AP Ferg, Nina Kraviz, and others. Meanwhile, Michigan acts include techno veterans Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, and Mike Huckaby, as well as Matthew Dear (performing as Brain) and Lost Souls of Saturn (Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa). Detroit rapper Kash Doll is also set to perform.
