Movement Electronic Music Fest Continues Thru Holiday

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Movement began in Detroit and the music continues playing on at Hart Plaza thru Monday night.

The Movement Electronic Music Festival attracts tens of thousands of techno-music fans from all over the world.

Jeremy White didn’t have to travel too far to enjoy the music. He lives in Warren — and is meeting people in downtown Detroit who are visiting from all over the world.

“You see people coming in from Ontario, there were some (people) from Wisconsin, Ohio it’s just … everyone congregates here for … something positive,” said White.

Mason Roberts is from Portland and says he wants to see it all. “It’s so overwhelming because there is so much good talent here – that you really are pulled in so many different directions even if you don’t want to leave an area – when you get to the next one you are so satisfied … the people that put this together have a lot of history … they know what talent they need to bring here to draw from all over the world,” said Roberts.
Dominque Vasquez came from New York for the second year in a row.

“The music is incredible,” said Vasquez. “It’s great music, great vibe – people be who they want to be here, no one judges you.”

Techno began in Detroit. This is the 14th year for the festival, which became a ticketed event in 2005.
