DETROIT (Tell Us Det) In less than 24 hours, Downtown Detroit’s Hart Plaza will be transformed. The Movement Electronic Music Festival will be held this Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday – Monday, May 26-28.

Attracting people from around the world, patrons can enjoy five technologically rich outdoor stages with more than 100 artists. A posh VIP section located behind the main stage will house VIP ticket-holders and movements performing artist. This year’s festival will also include an interactive technology center featuring the hottest gear in the industry, and several art displays throughout festival grounds.

Mayor Dave Bing recently proclaimed this week as ‘Detroit Techno Week’ and presented the official proclamation to Paxahua Productions.

“It’s an honor to have Mayor Bing and the City of Detroit recognize our ongoing efforts to preserve the rich history and culture of Detroit Techno music,” said Jason Huvaere, director of the Movement Festival. “This proclamation serves as an endorsement of the tremendous talent and energy so many in the Detroit Techno community has put forth to represent Detroit and its rich musical heritage to its fullest both locally and abroad over the last 30 years.”
