Detroit billboard reminds the world the city is the birthplace of techno

"Detroit is the birthplace of techno music"...

A billboard has been erected in Detroit to remind the public that the city is the birthplace of techno.

Located at the Russell Industrial Center, a complex of studios and shops located at 1600 Clay Avenue, it has replaced an advertisement for Detroit’s Movement festival.

The billboard had played host to the festival advertisement for the last year, before being replaced by the new one, which reads "Detroit is the birthplace of techno music".

Movement is set to take place in Detroit between Saturday 26th and Tuesday 29th May, with Diplo, Nina Kraviz, Helena Hauff, Claude VonStroke and Ellen Allien all on the bill.

Carl Cox recently told DJ Mag that techno should scare the sh*t out of people.
