The future is now, folks.

And the future couldn’t come at a better time because, as we all know, the past can be, well, pretty shitty. The folks behind Charivari, the insanely stuffed four-day electronic music festival that celebrates wellness, culture, and, of course, Detroit’s contributions to house, techno, and electronica.

The multi-faceted festival, which is in its eighth year, will return for in-person entertainment after pivoting to a month-long virtual festival in 2020 — and they’re not holding back. More than 60 DJs will take the stage, including up-and-coming artists, as well as pioneers of the genre like Tylr_, Mike Clark, DJ Minz, DJ Godfather, Koruptid, Steve Crawford, and DJ Cent.

They also have an all-women stage because girl power, duh. But it’s not just the music Charivari wishes to shine a spotlight on, as organizers hope the event can showcase behind-the-scenes producers, yogis, and artists from the Motor City. To get your dancing muscles, bones, and joints primed for four days of dancing, both Saturday and Sunday will kick-off bright and early with yoga sessions that integrate movement and music from artists like Problematicblackhottie and Mona Black.

Event starts at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 12 and Friday, Aug. 13, 9 a.m. on
Saturday, Aug. 14 and Sunday, Aug. 15. At Historic Fort Wayne; 6325 W. Jefferson Ave., Detroit; Tickets are $20.
