VIP Passes Now Available for $150, Early Bird Weekend Passes Available for $50 through March
DETROIT Movement Electronic Music Festival organizers today announce their three headliners for the vitaminwater main stage—Fatboy Slim, Carl Craig performing live as 69, and Felix Da Housecat. Paxahau also announced names of 26 more acts they have scheduled to perform May 28th, 29th, and 30th in Detroit’s Hart Plaza.
Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook) is one of the World’s most legendary and prolific DJs and producers. His international success was built on hits such as “Everybody Needs a 303,” Praise You,” “Weapon of Choice” and the accompanying videos. (Weapon of Choice featuring Christopher Walken and MTV's No.1 video of all time for Praise You which was directed by Spike Jonze)
At Movement he will be returning to America for the first time with the latest version of his Big Beach Boutique production.
"It is a great honour for me to play at the birthplace of the music I have loved all my life,” Norman said. “Of course I have completely bastardised techno for my own ends over the years so I return respectfully with the Brighton, England take on the music that inspired us all."
His performance at Movement on Monday, May 30 will be the first time he has performed at the Detroit festival.
During Movement on Sunday, May 29 Carl Craig as 69 will help festival-goers travel back to a time in his career when the inventive producer’s performances were filled with an extremely raw analog sound that one Beatport reporter described as “astonishing.”
His performance at Movement will be the first time Craig has performed as 69 anywhere.
Two-time Grammy Award Nominee Felix Da Housecat will bring his electro sound to the Movement crowd on Saturday, May 28 when he headlines the main stage. Credited as the innovator of the current electro sound; the Chicago-bred artist brought electro to the masses with his groundbreaking album ‘Kittenz & Thee Glitz’ which included the UK top 40 pop chart crossover his ‘Silver Screen (Shower Scene)’.
