If you’re a dedicated fan of techno (or any style of underground dance music, really), you’re likely well aware of Movement, Detroit’s longstanding Memorial Day Weekend festival that celebrates the city’s place in the pantheon of dance music. Of course, the lineup is a stellar one, seeing the likes of Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Bonobo, DJ Sneak, Claude VonStroke, and tons more perform at Hart Plaza over the course of three days. But, as with any festival of this stature, there is a host of side- and after-parties taking place throughout the hallowed home of techno, and Resident Advisor has rounded up a number of them.
