Experiences In The D | The Blog for Visit Detroit
The Visit Detroit Blog is part of The Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau (DMCVB).
The countdown is on to Movement Electronic Music Festival, one of the summer’s most highly anticipated events. Electronic music fans from around the world will gather in Hart Plaza along the Detroit River for the 10th annual Memorial weekend celebration.
German electronic music pioneers and Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Kraftwerk, will make their first-ever appearance at Movement as the festival’s Saturday night headliner. The incredible lineup of more than 100 artists, from A to Z (literally — Abbe & Toth to Zip), is available online so fans can map out their game plan.

- Ride carnival thrill rides
- Listen to live music under the stars
- Watch an amazing fireworks display
