Carl Cox, Robert Hood, Dixon, DJ Harvey, Ben Klock, Larry Heard and more also on the bill

The first wave of artists has been announced for 2017's Movement festival in Detroit.

Perhaps most excitingly of all, the Belleville Three - AKA techno's founding fathers Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson - will be playing together under the name by which they've been collectively and colloquially known for over a quarter of a century, for the first time at any festival anywhere. Naturally there are also plenty of other Motor City names to look forward to, including Carl Craig, Stacey Pullen, Robert Hood, Matthew Dear, Dopplereffekt, and Kevin Saunderson again in his E-Dancer guise.

But Movement's no longer as locally focused as it used to be, and there's plenty of non-Detroit talent lined up as well. There's Carl Cox, for starters, who'll headline the Monday night. There's DJ Harvey, there's Larry Heard, there's Chris Liebing. And there's, oh, Kerri Chandler, Jamie Jones, Josh Wink, Soul Clap, Death In Vegas, Nicole Moudaber, Adam Beyer, Patrick Topping B2B Nathan Barato, Pan-Pot, Recondite, Mathew Jonson, Cassy, Daniel Avery, Leon Vynehall, Matrixxman, Mount Kimbie, Dusky, Michael Mayer, Kate Simko and, well, loads more.

And that's just Phase 1! All told, 27-29 May - or Memorial Day Weekend, as it's known in America - is looking like a pretty damn fine time to be in Detroit. We'd book those tickets now, if we were you!
