Event producer Paxhau has helped the festival remain a Detroit staple for over 20 years, dating back to 2000. Located in the birthplace of techno and a short distance from the cradle of house music in Chicago, IL, Movement draws a worldwide audience with its high-quality production and lauded lineup curation.
“Of all the places I’ve traveled to and audiences I’ve played music for, Detroit is still the city that remains the barometer of advanced creative knowledge and technique,” Mills, a pioneer of Detroit techno music, told Billboard. “It’s special because of what the long list of native Detroit musicians that have contributed to the world of music. It’s a place that is infamous for proposing new ways and ideas as well as a unique and common viewpoint on the future of music. The city taught me to never fear what lies beyond, but embrace it as a means to advance the music art form.”
