From the event description:

Movement Detroit 2019 is a three-day event featuring the best in techno music. There are five stages, each with its own distinct personality. Located just off the main entrance, the Stargate Stage is distinctly Detroit, with lifelong friends sound-tracking a city-wide block party. The Resident Advisor Underground Stage, with its brutalist architecture and concrete walls, makes it the perfect home for angular techno. Located amongst the trees, the Red Bull Presents Stage showcases myriad styles, such as funk, hip-hop, breakbeats and ghettotech. The Pyramid Stage, positioned opposite Red Bull along the river, is the perfect summer backdrop to complement the hybrid tech-house accompaniment. Finally, the Movement Stage, located in the amphitheater, is the crown jewel. Here is where you’ll see the big players, the legends and those who have earned their stripes.

When: Saturday, May 25, 2 p.m.-Monday, May 27, 11:30 p.m.

Where: Hart Plaza, 1 Hart Plaza

Price: $99-$199
