    Movement 2009 will be the biggest electronic music party
    Memorial Day Weekend, but there will be an additional 13 Official Movement Parties taking
    place in Detroit and Windsor starting Friday May 22nd through Monday, May 25.

    Techno and Electronic Dance music fans love the festival
    said Jason Huvaere, Movement
    festival director, and we want to keep the party going after the festival
    so we partnered with some great local promoters to host our official Movement

    The most highly anticipated Movement After-Party is the festivals closing party on
    Monday, May 25 because it launches the new partnership between Movement
    and Movement Torino. It will be the
    beginning of a new era for both Movement festivals.

    The partnership between the two festivals was first announced at a press conference at the
    end of April. Electronic Music icon Derrick May introduced
    the two groups in 2008 and they began discussing how they could work together to make
    Movement a global brand.

    Huvaere has called the partnership historic and said
    the two groups will work together to promote each others festivals and
    Paxahau will be instrumental in helping them book electronic music artists to perform at
    Movement Torino.

    The Official Movement Closing Party on Monday, May 25th, will feature performances by
    Krakatoa, Benny Benassi and many more. Doors to Plan B Nightclub located at 205 W.
    Congress open at 10 p.m. The cost of entry is $5 with any Movement wristband and $10
    without a wristband.
