DETROIT, May 20, 2011—The ‘Secret Artist’ placeholder on the Movement Electronic Music Festival schedule was announced via the festival’s official Facebook page at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The post said: “Ricardo Villalobos is the ‘Secret Artist.’ He WILL be in Detroit to perform at MOVEMENT May 29thand at the Voyage Royale: I’m on a Boat 3 afterparty. Check www.Movement.us for more info.”
Villalobos, a world-renowned microhouse and minimal techno DJ/producer, last performed in Detroit in 2002 when he played live at Paxahau Electronic Music Festival (PEMF), a four-day party that was held at the former Panacea Nightclub in downtown Detroit.
Paxahau originally released the Artist Set Schedule on May 12, but in the Sunday, May 29 vitaminwater stage slot inserted ‘Secret Artist’ as a placeholder, which created a lot of buzz and speculation in social media spaces since then—and is the reason festival organizers decided to release Villalobos’ scheduled performances via the festival’s official Facebook page.
