Recommended Posts

Guest plexipr

Paxahau announced today Ricardo Villalobos will be performing in Detroit for the Movement Electronic Music Festival Powered by Ford Fiesta; the addition of a 5th stage sponsored by Movement Torino; and 32 more acts who will perform in Hart Plaza May 29-31 including Ghostland Observatory, Derrick May, Booka Shade, and Marco Carola.

 

Villalobos, a world-renowned microhouse and minimal techno DJ/producer, last performed in Detroit in 2002 when he played live at Paxahau Electronic Music Festival (PEMF), a four-day party that was held at the now closed Panacea Nightclub in downtown Detroit.

 

"Ricardo is looking forward to coming back to Detroit again after all these years," said his Agent Goetz Guse of Cocoon Agency out of Frankfurt, Germany. “His return to the United States and Detroit for the Movement Electronic Music Festival is exclusive to Paxahau. He isn’t booked to perform at any other venue in the States, and we don’t anticipate he will be this year."

 

In addition to Villalobos; the contemporary dance music duo Booka Shade from Berlin has been scheduled for a live performance; along with electro, rock, and funk duo Ghostland Observatory who will also perform live.

 

“We are feeling very good about how this year’s Movement lineup has come together,” said Jason Huvaere, Executive Director of Movement Electronic Music Festival Powered by Ford Fiesta. “With today’s announcement of Ricardo and the other 31 artists, the response we are getting is extremely positive.”

Movement Torino Sponsors 5th Stage at Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival

Movement Torino, an electronic music festival in Italy that Paxahau formed a new partnership with in 2009, will be the sponsor of the fifth stage for the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit May 29-31. Last year the Movement Festival in Detroit had four stages.

 

“We are excited to have Movement Torino as the sponsor of the fifth stage for this year’s festival,” said Huvaere. “Our international partnership when formed last year was historic and has since proved to be mutually beneficial for Movement Torino and Movement Detroit.”

 

Huvaere went on to say, “Fans will enjoy the great lineup of artists scheduled to perform on the Movement Torino stage, there is a great mix of talent from both Detroit and Italy.”

 

Headlining the Torino Stage during the three-day festival will be one of Italy’s most influential techno and electronic music DJs Marco Carola, Detroit techno pioneer Derrick May, and very popular Italian DJ Mauro Picotto. Other artists performing on the Movement Torino stage are:
