In its 16th year running and 10th under its current name, Movement Electronic Music Festival celebrated with 141 artists across six stages at Hart Plaza.
The idea was started between friends and has grown into an annual celebration of the Motor City’s storied electronic music legacy, steadily defining itself as America’s key techno showcase and drawing fans from across the globe.
Movement takes place Memorial Day weekend and is more than just a music festival: it’s a celebration of love, pride and hope that captures the resilient spirit of Detroit by championing the do-it-yourself attitude of turning a grassroots idea into a reality.
“I’d like to thank everyone for the positive feedback. Dancing is something I still enjoy as well as making people laugh and smile,” said Officer Mays, in a reply about the video.
“I just wanted to do a part in bridging the gap between law enforcement and the public. We are nothing if our community can’t relate to us and doesn’t trust us.”
As the world watches, Detroit has seen a recent revitalization of the greater downtown area and a growing increase in small businesses, and Movement shines brighter and brighter as one of its fundamental cultural gems and top tourist attractions by growing alongside the city.
