The internationally beloved DEMF – Detroit Electronic Music Festival – is the first major electronic music festival in America that launched in 2000 to global acclaim and was last presented in Hart Plaza in Detroit in 2002. It will once again grace the world stage with its driving beats and powerful message of unity as a very special, free-of-charge event for all to enjoy. Its special mission is to bring the world together through the power of dance music. Campus Martius Park – the very Point of Origin for the city of Detroit (8 Mile Road is measured from a historic, founding marker in the park) – will host the DEMF. As the central place of the entire metropolitan region, it is a perfect location for a celebration of a music that this great town founded. The Detroit Electronic Music Festival will also present major dance music headlining performers, favorites on the global stage of today. Fans will get the chance to dance the day and night away at a rare event that is both world-class and inclusive of all. Featuring 5 main performance stages within the park and on its adjacent classic Detroit streets, the DEMF will create an exceptional footprint for a world party of epic proportions. One stage will be solely dedicated to the best of Detroit Techno, featuring the artists whose beats drive the city’s heart. The International and Main Stages will feature top DJs from 20+ countries of the world, creating a veritable Olympics of electronic music, a United Nations of Techno. Top clubs from the world’s major cities will be sending a selected DJ to act as an ambassador of their country and electronic music industry. The DEMF World Club & DJ Ambassador Program will celebrate the universal language of dance music and its ability to act as an inspiring and connective art form. DEMF 2014 will also include select electronic music cultural exhibitions, retailers, refreshments and more to ensure a complete modern festival experience for all of its special guests next summer.
