History Returns to Hart Plaza
Big names are amongst the phase 1 lineup of this years Movement Music Festival! Some of these artists have been around since the dawn of dance music! Let’s take a look at the top 3 artists (so far) you can NOT miss!
With over 15 years in the industry, French producer Shiba San has been turning heads after signing w/ DIRTYBIRD Records, the notorious record label founded by Claude Vonstroke. Rocking the stages across the globe, I can say I’ve had the privilege of experiencing his live set performances, and not ONE person could stand still! It was SO funky that you can’t help but smile as you got lost in the music. With just enough bounce, and perfect amount of groove, Shiba San is definitely making headlines everywhere he plays! Join the Movement & find out why!

Emerging in the music scene in the mid 90s, while remaining an Underground Icon, Adam Beyer’s musical style of Techno has become one of the most respected sounds in the game! From headlining across the world, playing the main stages, to the club floors, his dark sounds will leave you curious & hungry for more! Founder of the infamous DRUMCODE RECORDS, Beyer’s dark, industrial like sets definitely will tell an incredible story, and make any party worth attending! Last year he took on the Main stage at Movement’s 10th year edition, will he remain on his throne again this year!? We shall see, for I have no doubt in my mind that he’s bringing some SERIOUS Techno to Hart Plaza!

Oh yes, oh yes! One of the most respected names in the industry will be making his triumphant return to the Movement Electronic Festival 2017! British DJ, House and Techno producer, CARL COX! Also Known as the “King” of dance music! Not only does he host his very own “Carl Cox & Friends” stage at the Ultra Music Festival every year---Cox has been making a name for himself since the late 80s with his funky, sexy-house music. He recently retired his residency of 15 years at the popular SPAZE IBIZA, calling his last shows “The Final Chapter.” No One knew what to expect when Carl announced retirement. Was he talking about retiring forever? Ending all his shows? Will Carl Cox vanish from the scene?! So many questions! Not enough answers! BUT, our prayers have been answered by the music gods! As I am pleased to report that the king surprised all us fans by announcing he will be closing out the final day of this year’s festival! Let me hear it one more time?! OH YES OH YES!!!
Phase 2 lineup to be announced SOON!
