When COVID-19 struck the United States hard at the top of the year, it became lost immediately evident that all bets were off for May festivals. Movement Detroit fell into that month and subsequently postponed their annual Memorial Day weekend event, pushing them from their usual dates in late May into September. As coronavirus looks to worsen over the summer, stretching into fall and winter, the storied urban underground techno and house festival has decided to scrap their 2020 event altogether. Now Movement announced to fans that they are shooting for May 2021 instead.
“Well, here we are again,” organizations said to fans online. “Movement family, we would love nothing more than to be with you in Hart Plaza this September. However, during ongoing discussions with our team and City officials, it’s become painfully obvious that this year’s Movement Festival must be rescheduled to 2021.”
The twice-bumped Movement will retain many of the artists booked for this year, including ANNA, Carl Craig, DJ Minx, Goldie b2b LTJ Bukem with DRS, Kash Doll, Maceo Plex, MK, Richie Hawtin, SAMA’, Seth Troxler, Testpilot, and TOKiMONSTA.
Existing tickets will be valid for next spring’s fest, but refund information will be announced July 10. General admission and VIP passes for 2021 are on sale via their website.
