After taking a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival is back on track.

Festival organizers Paxahau announced Movements’ return to its long-running time and place, Memorial Day Weekend (May 28-30 next year) at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit.

It announced the company on social media on Monday.

Of course, with the pandemic still a persistent concern, the festival says it will keep abreast of the latest health and safety guidelines.

“We maintain communication with health officials,” says Paxahaus Morin Yousif Metro Times. “Our policies and our guidelines will change in line with what is out there at that time.”

She added: “Security is a hot topic at festivals and it’s always something we’ve had in mind and it’s always something that is top of mind when we go into next year.”

The festival was canceled in 2020 after considering moving to September in hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic could be controlled by then. Paxahau then hosted a series of Movement-branded virtual livestream DJ sets throughout the year.

This year, the festival switched to a “Micro-Movement” format on the Memorial Day weekend with smaller events at three venues in Detroit: TV Lounge, Magic Stick Alley Deck and Spot Lite.

No festival lineup has been announced yet, but Movement typically features a mix of electronic music from Detroit and beyond, with a slew of mainstream acts in adjacent genres like hip hop.
