DJ Times’ Movement Detroit 2017 Afterparty Guide

By  | 

For many years now, Movement Festival has stood steadfast in the face of the burgeoning EDM tidal wave, unchanging and unrelenting in its ruthless reverence to the house and techno scene that Detroit delivered to the world. For some, the three-day Movement Festival experience—taking place across Hart Plaza in the daytime—is enough to placate unmet underground musical desires. But others live for a special breed of after-party that can only be discovered in the depths of the birthplace of techno.

If that sounds like you, then read on, because DJ Times is here to guide you to the proper venues this weekend—after the festival gates shut. The following parties are our must-see selections for those venturing out into The D. But beware, as you may find yourself out groovin’ well past sunrise, day-walking back to your hotel like a vampire to recharge, disco nap, and then venture right back out into the afterparty darkness once more.
