Just last week, Movement organizers addressed fans and attendees about the current state of the 2020 festival in an effort to be open and transparent. They said at the time that Movement was still on for May in downtown Detroit. However, if there’s anything this coronavirus pandemic has told us its that a lot can change in a week—even in a day. Organizers took to their social channels to break the news that Movement Detroit, which is originally slated for Memorial Day Weekend in May, will be postponed until September 11-13.
“Due to the developing COVID-19 restrictions and our ongoing communications with State and City officials, it is with a great sense of responsibility that we have rescheduled Movement 2020,” say organizers. “We are receiving commitments from production teams and performing artists for the new dates and have been working around the clock to share some positive news we can all look forward to.”
Ticketholders will be able to use their Movement 2020 passes for the new dates in September or they can carry them over to the 2021 festival. Refunds will also be available for anyone who can’t attend either. No word on how many artists will be retained for the September dates, but the month is already fully booked with large-scale festivals competing for attendees.
