The annual Movement Detroit music festival has announced its 2020 lineup featuring house DJ The Black Madonna, experimental electronic artist Four Tet and legendary New York City club DJ Louie Vega as a part of its 2020 lineup. These DJs will come together at the Hart Plaza in Detroit, Michigan from May 23-25.
Other prominent DJs which will join the lineup during the Labor Day Weekend include Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex and Seth Troxler, although more names are set to be announced in the future. Prior lineups have included the likes of A Guy Called Gerald, Loco Dice, Carl Craig, Egyptian Lover, Moby, Flying Lotus, Carl Cox and Richie Hawtin. Detroit is known as the birthplace of techno, which the festival celebrates annually.
The Black Madonna recently cancelled her appearance at the upcoming Intersect Music Festival earlier this year due to the event’s ties with Amazon, which in turn has ties with ICE. “What the fuck is this Amazon shit,” the DJ wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “I absolutely did not agree to this. Oh hell no.”
Four Tet recently released a group of three tracks in collaboration with artist and longtime friend Anna Liber Lewis, for the project entitled Anna Painting. The three songs from the project are titled “Anna Painting,” “Lahaina Noon” and “Breath.”
“Little Louie” Vega is best known as one half of the legendary New York City-based production duo Masters At Work, alongside Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez. In addition to their club hits “I Can’t Get No Sleep,” and “When You Touch Me,” the duo are prolific remixers, reworking the likes of Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson. Madonna, Donna Summer, Aaliyah and Earth Wind & Fire.
