Movement Electronic Music Festival returns to Hart Plaza this weekend

While many Metro Detroiters will be hitting the road to enjoy the sights of Pure Michigan for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, more than 100,000 visitors from all across the world are expected to pack into Hart Plaza this weekend for the 13th annual Movement Electronic Music Festival.

Most people know Detroit’s rich musical history as defined by Motown; however Detroit also boasts rights as the birthplace of the techno music scene and home to what many consider to be the most highly anticipated electronic music festival in the world.

The festival received an official proclamation from the City of Detroit proclaiming May 21-27, 2013 the official Detroit Techno Week for its impressive activities, rich history and regional economic impact.

Beats at Movement will be bumping for 36 hours, starting Friday and continuing through Monday evening. In addition to the nonstop daily lineup, there are plenty of activities all weekend long such as pre-parties, after parties, workshops, dining specials, vendor sales and much more.

If you’re looking for places to eat between rave sessions, check out Eat It Detroit’s Movement off-site dining guide.

One of the best parts of the festival, for Broderick Tower residents at least, is that you won’t need to battle thousands of others to try and get in on the likely completely sold-out hotel rooms in the downtown area.

Ready to start bumping? Watch the official Movement 2013 Trailer or listen to these 40 Essential Detroit Techno and House Tracks as you count down to Saturday.

Hart Plaza is located on Jefferson Ave. on the Detroit Riverfront, approximately 0.7 miles south of Broderick Tower.
