Movement Detroit 2014 Announces Stages and Full Schedule

Movement Electronic Music Festival is excited to finally reveal the stage lineups for this year and absolutely thrilled to welcome our newest addition to the festival, the Silent Disco stage, powered by Ford and Sennheiser.


Movement Electronic Music Festival has long been the secret playground for savvy festival fans and underground music lovers from across the globe for one very outstanding reason- the music!  This is the foundation of Movement and why, after thirteen years, the festival continues to be the hero of many a dance music fan and artist.


“Fans of Movement have high expectations because we’ve conditioned them to demand it from us. We want them to want more. It’s our passion to bring Movement to life each year and to showcase the artists and people that make it great.” –Jason Huvaere, Paxahau President.

Movement has become widely recognized for their exceptional ability to perfect the art of talent curation in the festival space, allowing for that greatest of experiences, a synergic exchange between people and music. It’s not about hit-makers and hype and it’s not something you can quantify- it just is.


“I absolutely love playing Movement, it has a pulse and an energy that I can always feel. It’s something very special.”–Carl Cox

Over 115 acts will descend on Detroit this Memorial Weekend- each one bringing their brilliantly original style and energy to bear on the city. It’s going to be one crazy good party.

Here are some artist and stage highlights:

About Made In Detroit

It was hatched in 1991 as a spark for a city that’d long been left for dead. It was born of a nod to the backbone that made this place unlike any other. It was built with a forearm, a hammer and a shop hat on a silhouette that stood ready to strike. It’s Made In Detroit and for over 20 years it has been the singular symbol for a city that’s not about to quit. Today, Made In Detroit is more than a t-shirt brand, it’s the official mark of a movement that belongs to all of us. Born to represent, this is MADE IN DETROIT.  Available at
