Here, writer Hobey Echlin — who has covered Movement for MT since Day 1 — rounds up must-see shows and contextualizes the fest’s rich history, with conversations with everyone from Chuck D to Jeff Mills to local riser OktoRed. Echlin shows us why the Movement will continue to blow the minds of fans from all over the globe.
