The Best Festivals in the World

movement 2013 The Best Festivals in the World

Movement

Formerly known as the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, it's important that Movement is held in Detroit, one of the undisputed birthplaces of electronic music (aka the place where techno was born). Since its inception in 2000, Movement has brought electronic music fans from the world over to Detroit, giving props to the city's history and bringing in millions to the Detroit economy. Detroit legends like DJ Godfather, Starski and Clutch, and others being asked to perform, while Detroit techno legends like Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson have had hands in producing the festivals over the years. Movement also charges a reasonable price (under $100) for tickets with bills of over 100 acts. In today's cash-grab dance music scene, that's a feat that many festivals fail to reach.

    Unlike most people I’ve been to 4, 3 and 2.
    Sonar is completely different to a 3 day fesitval so can’t really compare.
    When it comes to Tomorrowland vs Ultra there really is no contest, Tomorrowland is by far and away the best 3 days dance festival in the world.

    Can you tell us what elements you chose about each festival that determine the word “Best??” Location? Price? Acts? Theme? Popularity? Why are THESE the best? Writing 101: Make your point and prove it.
