Destination of the Day: Movement Electronic Music Festival, 28-30 May, Detroit-Downtown, MI

Destination 3 in the series "Don't Stop The Music"

Detroit has a secret-it is the birthplace of techno music! No, not New York, Chicago, or Los Angles-Detroit. The same city that brought you The Jackson 5 (from Gary, IN), The Supremes, The Four Tops, in the 1980s became home of a new genre of electronic dance music. The Movement Electronic Music Festival, begun in 2000, gives the CTer a chance to sample the best and up-and-coming artists. Headliners for the 2011 fest include Fatboy Slim, 69, and Felix da Housecat.

While celebrating the future, do not forget to check out Detroit's amazing musical past at the Motown Museum (, located just west of Detroit-New Center.
