Movement Detroit Announces 10-Year Anniversary Lineup: Kraftwerk, Richie Hawtin, Caribou & More

The biggest news is the addition of Modeselektor, who will join Kraftwerk and Dubfire as the festival’s Main Stage headliners. The German duo’s forthcoming live show marks their first-ever appearance at Movement.

In a similar vein to the Phase One announcement, Paxahau has recruited another batch of techno royalty in the form of Len Faki, Tiga, and the Saunderson brothers, as well as seasoned Detroit act Ectomorph, who will perform an all-analog live show.

Filling out the more mainstream side of the spectrum, Skrillex’s OWSLA imprint will host a showcase, featuring some of the label’s favorite contributors like Mija, Kill the Noise, Alex Metric, Vindata and more. The Phase Two lineup is further rounded out by legendary hip-hop artist and Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, as well as modern funk musician DâM-FunK.

The newly announced acts join the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex, Caribou, Four Tet and more at the festival’s impending 10-year celebration.

Movement Electronic Music Festival takes place May 28-30 at Detroit’s Hart Plaza. Details on the official afterparties and the event’s day-by-day schedule will be announced soon.
