While the biggest electronic music festival Movement tends to attract attention, Charivari Detroit has been on the rise for nine years. It’s like Movement’s cousin, underground, less hipster.
This annual techno, dance and house festival celebrates Detroit’s contributions to the world of electronic music by featuring local DJs. It is scheduled for August 11-14 this year, organizers announced on Monday.
Previous years have featured Detroit pioneers like DJ Minx, Moodymann, Mike Huckaby and Juan Atkins, but the 2022 lineup has yet to be released.
“Charivari Detroit will be first and foremost a celebration of the city of Detroit and its contributions to electronic dance music,” according to a press release. “Techno is a Detroit creation and Detroit is filled with pioneers and current masters of the genre as well as many of the most talented and respected house music DJs/producers.”
The four-day gathering takes place on the green space of historic Fort Wayne with stunning panoramic views of the Detroit River and Canada as a backdrop. There will be three stages of music, live art exhibits, yoga and food. Tickets start at $75.
