Every spring, hundreds of thousands of diehard house and techno fans flock to Detroit to kick off festival season. Movement, Detroit’s premier electronic music festival, is set to be held May 28th to 30th in 2016, welcoming good weather, good music, and good vibes. As Movement celebrates its 10th year (formerly known as Detroit Electronic Music Festival, the festival launched as Movement in 2006), the weekend is poised to be filled with surprises, new additions, and the type of top-tier showcases that the festival has been best known for.

Set in the heart of house city, Detroit, Movement represents everything that is American electronic music. While festival-goers party in the Hart Plaza, they can take in the sights of the Detroit River and skyline behind them while feeding into the city’s rich history as one of the birthplaces of American techno. The festival caters to this, too, celebrating local acts that have become widespread such as Carl Craig and Matthew Dear while also highlighting global acts across all genres. Last year’s lineup provided a diverse selection, including DJ Snoopadelic, Tuskegee, Bob Moses, and Loco Dice, and although this year’s lineup has yet to be released, it’s sure that Movement will play host to one of its most unique lineups yet.

This year, Movement is setting up a few new improvements: following the lead of the majority of US festivals, 2016’s wristbands will be equipped with an RFID chip, allowing festival-goers to “scan” in and out of the festival. This allows for better security and easier re-entry for those who choose to take time to explore Detroit during the festival. However, plenty of Movement’s prior policies are still in place — children 12 and under are welcomed inside for free, fans can choose to volunteer in exchange for one-day passes, and the celebration continues (as always) after hours in the city for Movement’s Official Afterparties.

Movement enthusiasts can get their passes now for the May event, although single-day passes have not yet been released. General admission for the weekend is available now for $135, and VIP passes, which include a private check-in area and entrance, viewing deck, deluxe lounges, main stage behind-stage access, VIP bars, private bathrooms, chair massages, merchandise discounts, and VIP hotel access, start at $300. This year, all passholders are granted a one-year subscription to The Red Bulletin magazine. While Movement does not provide lodging outside of VIP reservations, the city of Detroit is filled with housing opportunities — but the top-recommended location is the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, which is situated right next to the Hart Plaza.
