An A-list DJ line-up has invaded Northern Italy last week and the artists are continuing to make their presence known all the way through to November 1st. DJs including Chris Liebing, Maceo Plex and Ellen Allen have traveled to Torino in order to give local fans a dose of their medicine. What’s more is that additional artists such as, Moodymann, Borderland, Jeff Mills and Rick Wilhite have been added to the line-up at this year’s Movement Festival.
You may also be familiar with another Movement Festival, that of Detroit, Michigan. Well this one in Italy is quite similar, in fact, it is considered to be the European cousin of the original American music festival. Nevertheless, whether in the States or Europe, Movement Festival is based on the principles of extraordinary dance music and the contemporary music culture. The festival’s official Facebook page states, “Movement aims to set world standards” for music entertainment.
So, for the past nine years Movement Festival has brought music makers and listeners together in harmony. One mission of the festival is to bring the audience a sense of quality music via a professional sound system. After all, there is nothing quite like hearing the beats we enjoy streaming through high-quality speakers. Sometimes the graded levels of bass drops and vocals needs more push than our basic sound system at home. Surely, this is one reason why fans flock to the large-scale stages and tents characteristic of every music festival.
Complete line-up (does not include special guest appearances):
Chris Liebing, Joseph Capriati, Ellen Allen, Davide Squillace, Matthias Tanzmann, Jeff Mills, Martin Buttrich, Skream, Maceo Plex, Kerri Chandler, Steffi, Timo Mass, Moodymann, Borderland (Juan Atkins & Moritz von Oswald), Ackeejuice Rockers, Boaz Van de Beatz, Dilligas, Strip Steve, Blawan & Karren, Juan Atkins & Rich Wilhite
Even though music festivals are more popular during the summer and dwindle in count as the year winds down, this festival offers a taste of lingering short-sleeve weather. With a forecast around 63oF (16oC) this week attendees can certainly expect a little sunshine and Vitamin D. Thus, it may not be such a bad idea to flock to Torino (plus, did we already mention the incredible line-up?). There is still plenty of time to purchase affordable tickets thru Movement’s main page.
