Irrepressible, irreplaceable

For the 13th time, Hart Plaza became a musical body electric

Nothing can replace the electric heart of our Detroit. It is the electronic roots of this city that keep our collective pulse strong and beating. So it is that 107,000 true fans and curious sparkle-seekers (the most since the event went ticketed in 2005) gathered in Hart Plaza Saturday through Monday. Magic filled the air, and festival-goers were lit up and grinning, buzzing with all manner of excitement. Folks from all walks of life danced in unison to the brilliant beats and shimmering soundscapes created by some of the greatest electronic musicians on the planet, from the movement’s founding figures to the latest pioneers. —Esther Rubyan
