Detroit Electronic Music Festival returning with two events
DETROIT (WXYZ) - 7 Action News has learned that a big event is returning to downtown Detroit.
Sources tell us that the 'Detroit Electronic Music Festival,' or DEMF, is making a comeback. The festival will be held at Ford Field.
Back in 2000, 'DEMF' was the first electronic music festival in Detroit. It was a free festival, held at Hart Plaza.
The annual festival has changed names and management over the years. 'Movement' is the current name of the event held, which is held every year over Memorial Day weekend.
The creators of the 'Detroit Electronic Music Festival' are announcing the return of their event.
Once again, it'll be held at Ford Field on a different date than 'Movement'. Right now, no word on if it'll be free or not.
In the last decade, electronic music festivals have brought hundreds of thousands of fans to Detroit, along with millions of dollars.
A press conference is being held Wednesday morning at 10:00 a.m. Stay with 7 Action News for more on this breaking story.
