Movement Music Festival: You’ll RAVE About the Birthplace of Techno’s Biggest Party!
True electronic dance music and (and even hip-hop) fans should check out Movement Music Festival. Why? Because Detroit is the birthplace of techno music and has celebrated this in festival form since 2000 (MMF was fully established in 2006 after taking over for its predecessors). Yes, Euro dance floors are where electronic music stems from but in the 80s, Detroit really turned the tables (yeah dad jokes already) on what spawned the electronic dance music millions enjoy today.
This 3-day Memorial Day weekend is not only an iconic festival and takes place in Downtown Detroit’s unique Hart Plaza, you’ll be surrounded by a very inclusive crowd (usually sans frat bros and super drunk face planting first timers) but you’ll have dozens of food trucks, bars, and vendors to keep the party going and your dancing energy up. So put your baby beads on, grab your glow sticks, polish up the hula hoop, and get those furry boots ready for shufflin’ because the next photos are gonna have you so stoked for next year’s Movement Music Festival you won’t even need any molly. Just remember what Detroit legend Andrew W.K. would loudly say, ” When it’s time to party, we will party hard”!
