Paxahau presents MOVEMENT 2009: May 23-25 At Hart Plaza, Detroit


Recommended Posts

Paxahau is proud to present Movement 2009 to take place on May 23, 24 and 25, 2009 at Hart Plaza in Detroit, MI. Since 2000, Movement has become the ultimate stage for the city that founded techno music to showcase its electronic music muscle. Last year’s attendance nearly reached 80,000 over three days on Detroit’s Hart Plaza during Memorial Day Weekend, with fans enjoying 36 hours of their favorite electronic music artists and DJs performing on five stages and was named "Festival of the Year" by the readers of URB Magazine.


“Every year our goal is to build upon the success of the previous year by bringing the best available local, national and international talent to Detroit in order to create a weekend experience unlike any other in the World,” said Jason Huvaere, president of Paxahau. “Our team spends a lot of time selecting artist and DJs that will appeal to electronic music enthusiasts. This year there will be a major Detroit presence at the festival as well as some performers that rarely set foot on stage in the United States.”

Movement 2009 will be the biggest electronic music party Memorial Day Weekend, but there will be an additional 13 Official Movement Parties taking place in Detroit and Windsor starting Friday May 22nd through Monday, May 25.


Techno and Electronic Dance music fans love the festival atmosphere,” said Jason Huvaere, Movement festival director, “and we want to keep the party going after the festival so we partnered with some great local promoters to host our official Movement parties.”


The most highly anticipated Movement After-Party is the festival’s closing party on Monday, May 25 because it launches the new partnership between Movement Detroit and Movement Torino. It will be the beginning of a new era for both Movement festivals.


The partnership between the two festivals was first announced at a press conference at the end of April. Electronic Music icon Derrick May introduced the two groups in 2008 and they began discussing how they could work together to make Movement a global brand.


Huvaere has called the partnership “historic” and said the two groups will “work together to promote each other’s festivals and Paxahau will be instrumental in helping them book electronic music artists to perform at Movement Torino.


The Official Movement Closing Party on Monday, May 25th, will feature performances by Krakatoa, Benny Benassi and many more. Doors to Plan B Nightclub located at 205 W. Congress open at 10 p.m. The cost of entry is $5 with any Movement wristband and $10 without a wristband.

Techno Music legend Carl Craig has been named Creative Director for Movement 2010. Paxahau made the announcement today as they prepare for the start of Movement 2009 which is set to begin on Saturday, May 23, 2009 at noon.


“Movement is already a great festival and a successful brand,” said Craig, “it is an honor to be involved with Movement in this new capacity. I look forward to working with the team from Paxahau to take the artistic vision for the festival to a new level.”


In his new role Craig will be involved in various creative aspects of Movement including artist bookings and the festival’s brand image. He will also serve as an ambassador for the Movement festival as he travels the globe performing for throngs of electronic music enthusiasts.


“Detroit is such a wonderful music town,” Craig continued. “With Movement we have such a great opportunity to remind people from around the world and those that are right here in our own backyard that electronic music in Detroit is very powerful and that our annual festival is the best stage for showcasing the most talented artists of this musical genre.”


The annual Memorial Day Weekend festival has gone through several reincarnations since its beginning in 2000. Paxahau earned the right in 2006 to produce the festival. Since then they have been credited with bringing financial stability to the once fledgling festival and developing a festival atmosphere that appeals to fans because of the high standard of production quality they demand and their ability to book major local and international artists year after year.


Paxahau representatives were elated when Craig agreed to become creative director and believe his involvement will strengthen the future of the Movement festival in Detroit.


“We were extremely excited when Carl agreed to come on board as our new creative director,” said Jason Huvaere, president of Paxahau. “He has a complete understanding of the history of Techno Music in Detroit. He understands its impact around the world because he lives it every day."


“Carl is a musical visionary whose ambassadorship is unparalleled. He will be able to capture the desires electronic music fans have for Movement and help us to incorporate them into future festivals.
