I’ve been telling myself since 2000—the year the Movement festival began—that I’m going to hit it up one day. Generally speaking, I have very little interesting in going to Detroit. And really, if it weren’t for Movement, and the stellar line up year after year (and the more than 100 artists they have performing this year), my interest level would be around zero. Sadly I won’t be there this year but as always, Memorial Day Weekend in Detroit sounds fun.
Lil' Louis will headline on Saturday 26th, rap legends Public Enemy will headline on Sunday 27th (their debut Movement appearance) and Jeff Mills, aka The Wizard, will headline on Monday May 28th. Plus all the after parties that spreads out around the city.
