To coincide with Detroit’s Movement Festival, Detroit’s Mayor Mike Duggan has officially recognised the week of the festival as Detroit Techno Week.
“Last year, thousands of people from the region and across the globe converged on Detroit for the music festival; and Detroit becomes a tourist destination for music lovers, making the downtown entertainment venues, casinos, hotels and restaurants abuzz with activity during this 36-hour festival,” reads the official Certificate of Recognition issued by the City of Detroit.
“Hart Plaza, the central point of this gathering, features six technologically-rich stages, more than 100 local and international music artists, an interactive technology center and several art installations constructed by members of Detroit’s creative community.”
Movement 2016 begins in just four days on Saturday and ends on Monday, alongside the main festival schedule there will be a huge offering of after parties throughout the city’s venues and clubs.
Headliners for this year’s festival include Kraftwerk, Modeselektor and Nina Kravis, alongside local heroes Carl Craig, Mike Huckaby and Juan Atkins.
"Come out and celebrate the festivities, as it creates local and international awareness of Detroit's rising creative culture," Mr Duggan stated.
