Movement ’07 review by A. “Grimace” Virden
- In its’ eighth year, Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival continues to wrestle with how to remain vital. There is an element of “been there, done that” which makes pleasing the fickle techno fans even more difficult. Paxahau, as all festival producers before them, must keep this “Detroit’s” electronic music festival rather just than “an” electronic music festival in Detroit. The budget of the festival is said to be $770,000, only 10% of which is to come from sponsorship, the remaining from tickets and concession sales. Keeping the crowd happy with a mix of new and classic techno also remains an issue.
