The The Detroit Electronic
Music Festival (DEMF) festival is on again in Detroit. Known
now as Movement, the festival has been handed off
from techno pioneer Derrick May to his protege Kevin Saunderson, and finally to Detroit-based electronic music promotion company Paxahau.
Movement is still considered to be true to its roots and the history of electronic music in Detroit, widely considered to be the the birthplace of techno. This year's lineup has a diverse roster of established acts alongside up-and-coming artists.
As for 2011 ... a 36 hour party spread across four stages with almost 100 artists performing in the location of Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit. This will be the 11th anniversary of the Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
Get your DEMF on with some serious VIP action ... newly announced tickets for VIP packages include VIP bar access with free and discounted drinks, private bathrooms and access to areas behind the main stage. And a T-shirt! All that money and you get a T-Shirt! (while supplies last). VIP passes are $150.
Regular tickets for 3-Day passes are available for $50.00, soon to move to $60.00.
Check out the Movement Electronic Music Festival Video Channel on the Spacelab Media Player with videos from last year's outing, including performances from Richie Hawtin as Plastikman and A-Trak.
