Paxahau has announced 67 new acts to perform at Movement Electronic Music Festival 2015, taking place in Hart Plaza over Memorial Day Weekend, May 23rd through 25th.
The second announcement brings the total number of acts at this year’s Movement to 141, the most the festival has ever fielded. Detroit artists figure heavily in the additional wave. Movement 2010 headliners Model 500 return to the main stage on the heels of the latest album from the Juan Atkins-fronted project. Underground Resistance leader Mike Banks had a hand in the production of that record, and he’ll join previously announced act Carl Craig for a live performance fitting into Craig’s Detroit Love concept. In addition to Atkins, Kevin Saunderson and Derrick May have been booked for a back-to-back set, making for full Belleville Three representation. Other Motor City representatives include Octave One, Jay Daniel, Urban Tribe, Kenny Larkin, Eddie Fowlkes, Terrence Parker, Waajeed, Sludge artist Marshall Applewhite and Jimmy Edgar, who will play live withMachinedrum as JETS.
