Detroit’s Movement Music Festival Shares City-Wide Afterparty Schedule

With Detroit’s Movement Music Festival approaching, organizers have today revealed a massive schedule of official “Movement Nights” afterparties taking over the Motor City this Memorial Day weekend.

Before Movement brings the best of the house and techno underground to Hart Plaza from May 25-27, Defected’s disco-infused Glitterbox party will kick off the weekend with performances from Derrick Carter, Natasha Diggs and more during the festival’s official opening party at Spot Lite on Friday, May 24.

After festival day one ends on Saturday, May 24, the Russell Industrial Center will host sets from Dom Dolla, Airwolf Paradise, Channel Tres, Skream, and LP Giobbi as part of a multi-room takeover from Dom Dolla and Skream’s respective Good Fortune and Skreamizm parties.

Elsewhere around the city on Saturday, Carl Craig’s Detroit Love will team up with Defected at Spot Lite; Soul Clap’s House of EFUNK will celebrate ten years at TV Lounge; Yel 3.5 will invite Collabs 3000 (Chris Liebing B2B Speedy J) and Surgeon to City Club; and MEDUZA will perform at Magic Stick.

The Russell Industrial Center will go all-in on techno for its afterparties on Sunday, May 26, with shows from Control VI—featuring I Hate Models, Richie Hawtin and more—and Ellen Allien‘s We Are Not Alone—featuring DJ Stingray 313 and more.

Soul Clap and co. will be back for a second night at TV lounge on Saturday, while husband-wife duo Anané and Louie Vega bring “The Ritual” to Spot Lite, and Kevin Saunderson‘s KMS Records invite Justin Martin, Coco & Breezy and more to Magic Stick.

Movement’s afterparty programming will close out in style on Monday, May 27 with Gorgon City’s Enter The Realm and a 30-year celebration for jungle legend Goldie’s Metalheadz Records at the Russell Industrial Center.

Spot Lite will also bring the heat on Sunday with DJ Minx’s House Your Life, which includes sets from Honey Dijon, Kevin Saunderson and DJ Holographic B2B DJ Tennis, while Nicole Moudaber’s In The Mood 10th anniversary tour continues at Magic Stick.
