Memorial Day Weekend is fast approaching for the city of Detroit. Soon, thousands of house and techno fans will embark on their annual pilgrimage to Movement Festival in order to celebrate their music of choice in its very birthplace.
The festival itself is going to be quite the thrill; talent from all over the house and techno spectrum — from Dirtybird acts, to Ostgut Ton — will be represented, offering attendees a large menu of music to sample throughout its three-day duration.
