Electric Forest 2014: There's No Place Like Home

I came to Electric Forest in 2014 uncertain of what to expect from this year's festival. The lineup wasn’t as impressive as previous years, although the genre-spanning acts were a welcome change. I was rolling deep with an entirely new crew this year, many of them friends from various shows, but none of whom I had yet forested with. However, none of that mattered as our caravan rolled into Double-JJ Ranch. Once my tires hit the dirt, I knew I was home again.

Movement 2014: Who's Afraid of Detroit?

Movement Electronic Music Festival is the quintessential city festival, because it involves and embraces Detroit and its rich music culture. With a stage dedicated entirely to Detroit DJs, and Detroit natives Richie Hawtin and Claude VonStroke headlining, no other festival lineup better represents the city where it’s located than Movement. And after the music ends in Hart Plaza, it begins everywhere else in Detroit. Movement afterparties are unlike any other festival. After Lollapalooza, you’ll drop $45 to see one of the festival headliners you probably just saw mere hours ago, and get kicked to the curb by 3 in the morning when the club shuts down. After Movement, the afterparty lineups are diverse, inexpensive, and go until the sun comes up.
