Detroit’s Movement music festival has revealed the stages and showcases for its 2023 edition, which returns to Hart Plaza during Memorial Day weekend.

More than 115 acts are set to perform across six stages, plus pop-up performances and a first-ever festival showcase by British dance music label Defected Records.

JARS returns as the festival’s cannabis sponsor, branding the festival’s Waterfront Stage. The Underground Stage, relocated in 2022 to an unused food court service area due to crowd control concerns, is also returning — which is all for the better because the new location is larger anyway.
