DEMF/Movement Milestones

With Movement 2011 approaching I’m reminded of the constant fear of the festival coming to an end.  With all the changes throughout the years it is surprising that the festival can still retain it’s core traditions.  Of coarse it isn’t free like it was in the DEMF days but we knew this was too good to be true.  The festival would not be around these days if there wasn’t a fee to get in, and this is the reality of the situation.  Another change has been to the line-up.  With dubstep and electro house gaining popularity, you can bet that the Festival promoters will want to capitalize on that.  In the early days it seemed that the line-up was mostly Detroit based artists and now we definitely have the international appeal.  Personally, along as I don’t start seeing a bunch of Trance DJ’s then I’m not bothered.  As long as I can see Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, Terrence Parker and the likes then I’m straight.  New things can be good but Detroit’s Movement Festival needs to showcase the history of the music as well as where it is headed.  Paxahau seems to be doing a decent job of balancing things the last few years so hopefully they continue to come through for us.  Here is a video form DetroitTechno.org about the trials and tribulations of the festival throughout the years.
