11 can’t-miss acts playing Movement Electronic Music Festival 2017


Now in its 11th year, Movement Electronic Music Festival retains its position as the United States' best. Sure, there may be some more big tent festivals scattered across California deserts and Northeastern forests, but those festivals lamentably often boast cookie-cutter programming at best, a chance to see the same array of DJs against different natural backdrops.

Not so with Movement, where the festival draws both on the city's decades-deep legacy and its position at the cutting edge of where the music will go next. There are dozens of great sets to catch — not to mention even more underground parties thrown at the fringes during this weekend — but here are 11 must-see artists, both old and new. — Andy Beta
