[lightly] Comparable to the Hajj to Mecca, the annual pilgrimage to Detroit brings people from around the world to indulge in what they love… Techno and House Music.
A favorite stomping ground for veterans, and an expansive learning experience for newcomers; Movement is truly a unique festival, and leaves every attendee with something extra they didn’t have within them before. [Even if its a pair of silk cat underwear… ]
To those wallowing in nostalgia and longingly listening to your Soundcloud streams, wallow no further. Movement partnered up with HYTE and will be coming back to you… Next week on July 2nd.
HYTE will make it’s auspicious return to New York, with a change of venue, and devoted Movement Stage. [Made with only Detroit Love, of course.]
This year’s lineup:
Stage 2 [powered by Movement] Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Loco Dice, Maya Jane Coles, Jackmaster, and Peggy Gou.
**Don’t know some of those names? We’ll be posting some artist profiles throughout the week, so keep an eye out!**
Last year, the two-day mini tech-fest was held at the Brooklyn Hangar. Providing tech enthusiasts with the familiar comfort of a dark warehouse, and limited sun exposure. [Can’t risk sun-bleaching those black clothes, now can we?]
HYTE, Movement, and Schimanski have partnered up and revamped the event with an upgrade to a new area on Governor’s Island for some fresh air, and a panoramic view of lower Manhattan on the water.
The more you know…
HYTE is a global party series with its largest events found in Ibiza, New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and Miami. Boasting a successful focus on the bond between listener and performer, their events have a mood consistent with the free spirited vibe of early techno and house music.
Movement is a three-day festival held inside Detroit’s beautiful riverfront venue, Hart Plaza. There are six stages from Detroit locals, to main stage favorites, and a stage for music that’s so underground, the stage is essentially a cement cave.
In addition to extremely talented performers, attendees also have access to an interactive technology center, art displays, and a surreal collection of after parties. This year the festival’s attendance comfortably hit 30,000 people per day.
