Real Detroit Weekly is a returning third year sponsor of Movement, and will feature the return of the Underground Stage, known now as the Real Detroit Stage, sponsored by Real Detroit Weekly. “Real Detroit Weekly is a strong supporter of Detroit’s Movement event, and is committed to sponsoring a successful festival that reaches an amazing fan base,” stated Jason Huvaere, festival director. “We are thrilled to have Real Detroit on board, once again, as an event sponsor.” This year’s diverse and eclectic roster showcases established electronic acts and vanguard artists who exemplify the event’s global fan appeal, confirming the Detroit festival as a destination for the international techno circuit. “As an original sponsor for Movement/DEMF, we have witnessed the growth of the festival from a relatively local event to an international celebration of electronic music in downtown Detroit,” said John Badanjek, Publisher, Real Detroit Weekly. “Every year the festival continues to impress us with their unyielding pursuit to improve the overall festival experience through better sound, staging, lighting, and of course talent. Real Detroit Weekly is honored to present this year's lineup of world-class, homegrown artists to an international audience at the Festival. The fact that the Real Detroit Stage will be moving underground only compliments the stellar lineup. We anticipate the Real Detroit Stage will be banging from the first beats until they shut it down.” Real Detroit Weekly – a weekly alternative entertainment-driven magazine – is Detroit’s most entertaining source for music, nightlife, movies, fashion, dining and all other things under the pop culture umbrella. Mixing a combination of the city’s elements with the suburbs’ charm, the editorial attention is a secret formula that features local and national acts as well as pertinent information for Detroit’s most loyal and growing audience.

Along came a guy from queens named Mike (he’s like Darius’ Robin… but don’t tell him that) and because mike has a gift for the gab, it’s no wonder word got around, thus emerged Glacéau, a fresh new approach to bottled water. Today glacéau, the leader of the enhanced water category, is the maker of Vitamin Water, smartwater® and vitaminenergy™. Now with 750+ full and part-time employees, (that’s a big holiday party) Glacéau is all about helping thirsty people like you hydrate responsibly with something truly good for your body.

  7. Detroit's Electronic Music Festival: Mark your calendars, book your flights / hotels and tell your friends about one of the best weekends of electronic music events in the known universe. Saturday May 26 through Sunday May 28, noon-midnight in beautiful Hart Plaza, downtown Detroit - on the riverfront. And that’s just the festival itself. With over 50 afterparties held throughout the weekend last year you no doubt will hear some of your favorite artists play, somewhere. The word on official afterparties as well as all other relevant info to help you have the best time you can in Detroit will be on the festival website (www.demf.com) as soon as it becomes available. As for the festival itself: Movement 07 will feature performances by legendary Detroit artists Moodymann live featuring Pitch Black City; Model 500 featuring the godfather of Detroit Techno Juan Atkins; and Jeff Mills, the longtime hard hitting "wizard" of Detroit Techno. Moodymann (Kenny Dixon Jr.) is a legendary Detroit techno/house artist known for his innovative use of reworked riffs, samples and grooves taken from the City's historically influential jazz, soul, funk and disco scene. Rarely appearing live, his headlining performance at the festival is the first show in support of his upcoming studio album and will include a full stage show with a band. Juan Atkins, who is widely regarded as the godfather of Techno, began in the 1980s recording what stands as perhaps the most influential body of work within the genre. Model 500 will headline the main stage on Sunday at the festival, highlighting the continuing influence of his music on a global scale. Jeff Mills is a planetary superstar of techno, an unwearied hero of mega-events and an ace of the three-deck mix; his musical touch has been a force on this city's dance scene for over 20 years. Jeff returns to Detroit to headline the festival with a main stage closing performance on Monday night. Other 2007 special performances include German producers Booka Shade, who have earned a reputation as one of the world's most exciting live electronic music acts. Their performance at the 2007 festival will mark Booka Shade's first appearance in Detroit. Also performing live will be Octave One, featuring Detroit natives, brothers Lenny and Lawrence Burden, who have released groundbreaking underground dance anthems on their Detroit-based record label, 430 West Records.
