Your Complete Party Guide to Movement Detroit 2017

It’s that time of the year once more as Movement Detroit nears and parties happening in the city throughout Memorial Day Weekend begin to get announced. With so much happening on the course of five days, we have put together this comprehensive guide to help you choose and plan your weekend with ease.

The list is sorted in order by day, with events displayed alphabetically. While most are afterparties, there are a few day parties too which are clearly marked to avoid confusion. It’s Detroit during Movement weekend, so bear in mind that some night parties turn into day parties, and sometimes certain events go longer than originally announced.

The 6AM staff combed through the entire list and selected favorites that we recommend based on years of experience traveling to Detroit for Movement weekend. Please be aware that some lineups are still TBD and some parties are altogether still yet to be announced. We will be updating this list daily to ensure it’s complete for your use. As you prepare your trip to Detroit, also check out our expansive City Travel Guide to help you get the most out of your stay.
