Thousands of people across the world are getting ready to gather in the birthplace of techno to celebrate the heritage of Detroit and its musical influence over countless generations, new and old.

With that being said Movement Electronic Music Festival has finally released its 2018 stage lineups and programming, featuring over 85 performances inside Detroit's legendary Hart Plaza on Memorial Day Weekend.

This year's stages are as follows: Movement Stage, Red Bull Music Stage, Stargate Stage, Pyramid Stage, and Resident Advisor Underground Stage. In addition to keeping the tradition of providing the best festival experience, this year's event will feature new designs and elements for the Red Bull Music Stage, Stargate Stage and Pyramid Stage.

Day 1 - Saturday, May 26

Dirtybird label boss Claude VonStroke will close out the Movement Stage for the first time, this stage will also feature performances by Justin Martin, Solardo, and Dirtybird's rising star Fisher. Meanwhile, Carl Craig and friends will take over the newly-designed Stargate Stage for another edition of Detroit Love.

Day 2 - Sunday, May 27

Day 2 is full of my favorite Techno artists such as Eats Everything who is taking over the Stargate Stage. The Movement Stage will feature John Digweed, Seth Troxler and a rare b2b closing set that you can't miss; Loco Dice and The Martinez Brothers. Meanwhile, the Pyramid Stage is stacked with global talent from start to finish, featuring Nastia, Tiga, Marcel Dettmann and Nina Kraviz to close it out.

Day 3 - Monday, May 28

One of the most talked about Techno artists in 2017, Charlotte de Witte makes her Movement debut on the Resident Advisor Underground Stage and can't forget to mention Dubfire who is closing out the Pyramid Stage. Joining them is Italian producer and DJ Joseph Capriati who is deservedly one of Techno's most in-demand headliners and will perform at Movement Stage, right before a special performance by all nine members of the Wu-Tang Clan celebrating the legendary hip-hop group's 25th anniversary. If this wasn't enough, Mad Decent label boss and producer Diplo returns to the festival for a closing set on the Red Bull Music Stage and bright young talent in the scene right now, REZZ will be closing Stargate Stage
