City Slang: Movement Phase 1 lineup announced



The first phase of the Movement festival lineup was announced by Paxahau on Wednesday, with Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Pete Tong the big names on show.

Keen to make some news public following the revelation that there will be an all new DEMF this year, Paxahau initially confirmed their intention to go ahead with Movement within a few hours.

According to a new press release, Movement will take place at Hart Plaza on Memorial Day weekend, May 24-26, and the bill will also feature Loco Dice, Action Bronson, and Zeitgeber.

“A large number of local artists are included in the announcement today, fortifying the festival’s unwavering support of Detroit and the artists within. This includes one of Detroit's favorite sons, Grammy-nominated DJ/producer and Planet E chief, Carl Craig; the legendary Jeff Mills; and Techno-soul pioneer, Eddie “Flashin” Fowlkes, just to name a few.”

“We really wanted to have some fun with the lineup this year and showcase artists that continue to reinvent the wheel of electronic music as well as a slew of hometown favorites who are legends in their own right,” said Chuck Flask, artist coordinator for Movement Electronic Music Festival.
