This Memorial Day weekend, an all-star lineup will assemble at Detroit’s Hart Plaza for Movement festival. With the day-to-day breakdown of acts confirmed back in March, now Paxahau has delivered its stage schedules for Saturday, May 23 through Monday, May 25. To put it simply, you won’t find much time for a breather.
In 2015, Beatport is very proud to present one of the stages at Hart Plaza, which will host some of our favorite acts on the house and techno circuit. Saturday sees live sets from the likes of KiNK and Henrik Schwarz, with Seth Troxler and the Martinez Brothers bringing it home as Tuskegee. Sunday heats up with Dubfire, a sundown set from Maya Jane Coles, Hot Since 82 and Joseph Capriati. On Monday, after the likes of Route 94 and Kölsch set the tone, it’s over to Paco Osuna, Nicole Moudaber and Joris Voorn in the final hours. With that kind of cast, it’s sure to be a special weekend.
Of course, the Beatport stage is in very good company. The Movement main stage is perhaps the most diversely-programmed at the festival, with three distinct headliners: techno icon Richie Hawtin, Skrillex and Boys Noize as Dog Blood, and DJ Snoopadelic (aka Snoop Dogg). It’s also where you’ll find leading DJs Maceo Plex, Dixon, Luciano and Loco Dice, plus the live shows of Bob Moses, Recondite and Ten Walls.
The Red Bull Music Academy stage hosts Disclosure’s Wild Life takeover on Saturday, which finds Method Man in the midst of house and techno from Octave One, Kerri Chandler and Eats Everything. People Under The Stairs and hometown hero Danny Brown keep the hip hop coming on Sunday, leading into a 30-year anniversary showcase for seminal Motor City label Metroplex. Electronic trailblazer Squarepusher has RBMA’s closing slot on Monday with his mind-expanding live show.
The highlights keep coming on the Made In Detroit stage, presented by THUMP, which represents the heart of Movement. Carl Craig’s Detroit Love lineup will get things started right, followed by Sunday’s Ghostly International showcase with Matthew Dear at the helm, then Kevin Saunderson’s Origins. If you love your techno hard and steely, you’ll want to stay near the Underground stage, with its cast headed by Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Regis, Ben Sims and Rødhåd.
