All-killer set times announced for Detroit’s Movement festival

Heading to the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit? Well, the announcement of timetables will remind you just what an excellent decision you’ve made. We’ve had a while to process the huge line-up coming to Hart Plaza on the weekend of May 25 to 27 2013, and now comes the time to make a plan. With some of the world’s leading names in techno, house, bass music, electronica and disco represented, these are some serious set times.

True to the festival’s roots, the top-tier of names is heavily weighted towards techno. One of the Motor City’s greatest advocates, Richie Hawtin, will be there, alongside Detroit heroes like Carl Craig and the Hi-Tech Soul pairing of Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. From further afield is a list of resolutely techno-focused talent, including Luke Slater doing P.A.S. live, UK bruiser Dave Clarke and Berghain’s dream team of Ben Klock back-to-back with Marcel Dettmann. You’ve also got Nina Kraviz, Magda, Dubfire, George Fitzgerald: the list rolls on.

The Red Bull Music Academy stage will also feature Squarepusher live closing Sunday night, electronic prodigies Nicolas Jaar and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs playing live on Monday and sure-things like Francois K, Stacey Pullen and Mala. Beatport’s stage is also looking like the business. On Saturday, there’s a diverse cast that peaks with rave classics from Moby, a house-centric Sunday bill with Soul Clap, Tensnake, Art Department and Masters At Work, then Maetrik, John Digweed, Ellen Allien and Cajmere on Monday. The famous Made In Detroit stage is also back, showcasing the Motor City’s renowned names and some of its unsung heroes. Get planning below.
