For Day 2 of Movement Electronic Music Festival, Hart Plaza was filled once again with techno nerds and audiophiles from around the world ready to experience the sights and sounds of the best of underground dance music. Detroit has certainly opened its arms to us visitors — everyone from convenience store owners to cab drivers seem to understand why we’re here and heartily suppose the cause. Even those who could not themselves enter the festival scanned the exterior perimeters of the gates, moving to and enjoying the music in any way they could.
It was pleasant and clear for Day 1 of Movement Electronic Music Festival and the techno was ripe for the picking. We entered without hassle, weaved our way through the low maintenance crowds between several of the five stages, and were wowed by how enjoyable a festival experience really can be. Paxahau, now in its 8th year of promoting the event, took care and special attention to space the stages appropriately, control crowds in a realistic way, and generally make attendees feel more like human beings than cattle. The stage locations were interpreted quite literally in some ways, Beatport right by the riverfront, Electric Forest in a grove of trees, and the Underground Stage, well, in an underground parking area.
Moonrise Festival has been cancelled just 3 weeks prior to it’s start. Unfortunately, the highly anticipated festival was unable to obtain a permit they needed to put the festival on. Moonrise posted the following on their Facebook page
