The Movement Detroit 2015 festival will present about 130 acts on its six stages during Memorial Day weekend -- from major international names to up-and-coming local favorites. That throws down a gauntlet for even the heartiest of EDM fans to catch all the highlights.
Here, however, are six that we recommend hearing by any means necessary:
* Richie Hawtin: A no-brainer. After starting his career in Windsor and Detroit Hawtin is known around the world, and he always brings something special whenever he comes home to play. (10 p.m. May 23, Movement Stage)
* Disclosure: Strange as it seems, this is the British garage house duo's first-ever appearance at Movement. Not only does it close the Red Bull Music Academy stage at 10:340 p.m. May 23 but Disclosure also curates a full day of Wild Life programming there that includes Detroit's Kenny Larkin and rapper Method Man.
* Metroplex 30-Year Anniversary Showcase: Juan Atkins' Detroit-formed label celebrates three decades of innovation with performances by his Model 500, Eddie Fowlkes, Kimyon and Milan Ariel. (9 p.m.-midnight, May 24)
* Dog Blood: Separately, Skrillex and Boys Noize are superstar staples of the EDM scene. This four-handed collaborative project, however, is a rare, must-see treat. (10:30 p.m., May 24, Movement Stage)
* DJ Snoopadelic: You know him better as Snoop Dogg, but his encyclopedic music knowledge and eclectic taste should make this DJ set high times indeed. (11 p.m. May 25, Movement Stage)
* Kevin Saunderson & Derrick May present Hi-Tech Soul: Yeah, they're up against Snoop, but these two techno innovators from Belleville are cornerstones upon which Movement and all of EDM are built. (10:30 p.m. May 25, Made In Detroit Thump stage)
