Thanks to the city of Detroit and Mayor Mike Duggan, it’s officially Detroit Techno Week!

Leading up to Movement Music Festival 2017, May 22nd – 29th marks the legendary week of music in the city that made it. This weekend, Hart Plaza will become home to one of the most recognized music festivals in the world as headliners Richie Hawtin, deadmau5 as Testpilot, and Carl Cox take the stage.

Since 2000, Detroit has been home to the beloved techno festival, and is truly a staple event for the genre and artists that helped build it.

In the official certificate of recognition, the mayor added in that he encourages all to “come out and celebrate the festivities, as it creates local and international awareness of Detroit’s rising creative culture.”

In other words, it’s time to party Detroit style!
