EXPERIENCE MOVEMENT– Movement Music Festival
Hart Plaza

Originally planned as a grassy lawn area in 1924, it wasn’t until the 70’s that Hart Plaza was conceptualized and brought to life by Isamu Noguchi. Hart Plaza has become, almost unintentionally, a tribute to the strength of people - memorials in the plaza include “Gateway to Freedom”, recognizing Detroit’s role in helping emancipated slaves into Canada, and “Transcending”, a giant arch celebrating American Labor. What this is all means for Movement is a palpable energy in the air. Whether in the amphitheater, next to the river, or enjoying the massive underground bunker, we are not separate from our past, from our tactile environment - we are in the continuum.

Stages

Movement has 5 stages, each with their own distinct personality. Located just off the main entrance, The Stargate Stage is distinctly Detroit, with lifelong friends sound-tracking a city-wide block party. The Resident Advisor Underground Stage, with its brutalist architecture and concrete walls, makes it the perfect home for angular Techno. Located amongst the trees, the Red Bull Stage showcases myriad styles; Funk, Hip-Hop, Breakbeats, Ghettotech, it’s all welcome here. The Pyramid Stage, positioned opposite Red Bull along the river, is the perfect summer backdrop. The breeze coming off the water perfectly complements the hybrid Tech-House accompaniment. Finally, The Movement Stage, located in the amphitheater, is the crown jewel. Here is where you’ll see the big players, the legends, and those who have earned their stripes.

Food

Movement sports a true cornucopia of luxurious food options. From the legendary chicken on a stick, to gourmet bowls of awesomeness, there’s something for everyone. Don’t sleep on the cup of fries with vinegar or the falafel sandwiches!
