For techno devotees, Memorial Day Weekend plans continue to shape up with today's release of Detroit's Movement festival's phase two lineup for 2017.
Highlights of the bill include Richie Hawtin, who will headline the first night (Saturday, May 27); Deadmau5, who will be dusting off his techno-oriented Testpilot alias for the first time in four years for a second-night headlining performance; hometown hero Carl Craig, who will be presenting his Versus Synthesizer Ensemble; Stranger Things composers S U R V I V E; and a hybrid set from Rebekah. Others just announced as headed to Motor City include Honey Dijon, Heidi, Mind Against, Seth Troxler, and STERAC.
Movement Detroit takes place May 27-29 at Hart Plaza. Previously announced artists include headliner Carl Cox, Kerri Chandler, Larry Heard as Mr. Fingers, Rrose, and techno pioneers the Belleville Three (Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, and Juan Atkins), who will be performing together at the event for the first time.
