2000/2020: Celebrating 20 Years of the Electronic Music Festival in Detroit

Doug Wojciechowski
For 20 years, electronic music fans from around the world have flocked to Detroit at the end of May for one of the biggest urban parties on the planet. What began as a loose and free celebration put on with the help of grassroots volunteers has evolved into a professionally produced, internationally known event.

Even though the in-person festival paused this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Detroit Historical Museum will recognize its two-decade milestone anniversary with a photography exhibition highlighting each year of the festival, curated by Detroit electronic music community insiders Rita Sayegh and Tim Price.

The exhibition 2000/2020: Celebrating 20 Years of the Electronic Music Festival in Detroit will open in the Robert and Mary Ann Bury Community Gallery on Saturday, September 26 and run through next years’ festival in 2021.

The photography on display captures all the joy of Detroit’s famous festivals by focusing on the people who make the events so special.

In addition to framed photographs featuring all aspects of the festival experience, the exhibit will include a living wall of fan photos from the festival’s 20 years with the names of fans who contributed them. Information about contributing photos is at This area will continue to grow as Detroiters learn about the exhibition and add their memories. For those who can’t visit the museum in person, a virtual exhibit will accompany the physical exhibition, making it accessible to fans across the globe.

Powerful Lake Erie wave photos show the wilder side of our Great Lake

Metro Detroiters might think the waves on Lake Erie small and relatively unnoteworthy. On windy days, choppy waters draw the occasional surfer…

By Vince Grzegorek

“It was during an intense wind storm in the fall of 2014 that I first witnessed the powerful waves Lake Erie can generate. Lake Erie is the shallowest and the warmest of the five Great Lakes. And the waves I capture on this lake are generally two-fold. There are the main lake waves, which are generated from strong winds that whip up the water, and there are secondary waves that are created when these waves crash into barriers near the shoreline.”
