People Travel From Around the World to Birthplace of Techno, Movement 2015


The Movement Electronic Music Festival happens every year in Detroit, bringing thousands of music fans from all over the world to the birthplace of techno. 

This year, WDET’s team was on site at Movement asking fellow electronic music lovers to share how far they traveled to get to this year’s festival. We met people from all around the country and the world.
