With little close to a month, until Movement Detroit returns for its 2023 iteration, the colossal excitement to return to the city that loves techno, garage, and all things house this year. With a lineup of 115+ acts and six stages to roam around during Memorial Day Weekend, there are many hidden gems to be discovered throughout your wanderings. While already a stellar lineup with headliners including Skrillex, Zeds Dead (Altered States set), Kaskade (Redux), Dom Dolla b2b John Summit, Charlotte De Witte, and many more, Electric Hawk wants to showcase some artists that may not already be on your radar!
Check out these artists at each stage throughout the festival!
The crown jewel of the festival is the Movement Stage, located at the amphitheater in Hart Plaza. The notable acts that take our breath away! You can’t miss Logic1000, Ben Klock, and Ida Engberg, also the massive performances from legendary acts like Skrillex and Charlotte De Witte. After catching the Coachella streams and if you aren’t already aware, the hypnotizing and out-of-this-world experience from Underworld takes the main stage.
Now is your chance to experience the luxurious landscapes of the Waterfront Stage. This stage expands the musical palette of everyone in the audience. Waterfront Stage features genres like funk, hip-hop, breakbeats, ghettotech, and everything in between! We believe the artists to witness on this stage are the elegant DJ Seinfield, Special Request, and Kevin Reynolds. If you want to groove and enjoy the beauty of some true jersey club, you absolutely can’t miss the UNIIQU3 performance. Wanting to taste something different? Kash Doll will truly get you partying and letting that baddie energy out. Obviously, don’t miss the legendary duo Caribou capture us in our feels. Oh, and of course, witness that Zeds Dead (Altered States) set!
On the opposite end of the Waterfront Stage comes the scenic environment of the Pyramid Stage. At the top of the pyramid, we get a chance to see the mesmerizing TSHA and LADYMONIX showcase their talents. Also, if you want to fall into a tunnel of techno, go witness Rebūke perform. Or, maybe you crave something spell-binding and hypnotizing – check out the artist Mathew Jonson. And, of course, if you are looking to party, see FISHER bring the wildest party to Detriot. Not to mention, it’s always a treat to watch the incredible Green Velvet perform.
The stage where all the homies come together and bring all the good vibrations for the crowd. The stage where you get to encounter some incredible energy, especially when the legendary Dom Dolla B2B John Summit and Kaskade Redux headline. But some hidden gems to be aware of include Octave One doing a live performance. Also, KiNK bringing their live performance as well. If you want something more funky and groovy, definitely hit the dancefloor once Melé hits the stage to get your hips moving. Lastly (but certainly not least), some melodic and mesmerizing acts to add to your bucket list are DJ Holographic and Giorgia Angiuli.
Naturally, you crave for that true “warehouse” experience; this is the stage you want to escape to. Now, this is your chance to fully immerse yourself in the beats and sounds of the underground. We believe you will truly enjoy seeing acts like ONYVAA, Henry Brooks, and Sara Landry if you want some of those heavy techno soundscapes. For someone that wants to feel the euphoria that allows your body to disassociate for a brief period, acts like LSDXOXO and Decoder b2b Jay York will bring you pure bliss. Although being away from the main festivities below Hart Plaza, sometimes this stage is exactly what your soul needs.
Finally comes the Detroit Stage, which is an all-Detroit lineup highlighting veterans and rising talent as well as newcomers. Already on our list to check out are the incredible Sinistarr along with SCAN 7 and sillygirlcarmen. Electric Hawk is excited to stumble upon and get to enter the full experience of seeing what Detroit has to offer!
Undoubtedly, there is a ton of music to immerse yourself in while you attend Movement Detroit! Don’t forget to get lost in the music and truly enjoy the wonders. From the incredible art and murals, the delicious food, and the heart of Detroit, we will return for another amazing Movement Detroit on Memorial Day weekend. And we can’t wait to be in the crowd with all of you! Let us know who we should check out, too!
