Charivari Detroit 2015 Lineup – A new electronic dance music festival is returning for its second year in the birth place of techno, the city of Detroit, Michigan. Charivari Detroit, taking place on August 1st and 2nd, 2015, is a free music celebration paying homage to the great talent the city holds.
A successful 2014 inaugural year necessitated a site change to the larger accommodations of Belle Isle State Park — boasting a bigger location and a bigger line-up for 2015.
Historically “Charivari,” a word dating back to the Middle Ages was used to describe a loud public ritual. Those familiar with the roots of Detroit Techno itself will recognize the name from the A Number of Names track “Sharevari.” Thought of as one of the, if not the first Detroit Techno track to hit the streets. The name evolved from the legendary Charivari parties that began attracting a cult following in 1980 and was a tribute to Detroit’s high school party scene. Those behind Charivari Detroit 2015 hope to evolve the spirit of “Charivari” into a loud and elaborate musical celebration featuring electronic music in all its celebrated forms.
Belle Isle State Park is America’s largest city-owned island park. Belle Isle is larger than New York City’s famed Central Park and both were designed by prominent urban park designer Frederick Law Olmsted. The 982-acre island is located in the Detroit River, between the United States mainland and Canada, connected to Detroit by the MacArthur Bridge.
In addition to the Charivari festival, promoters will be offering branded preview and after parties surrounding the festival weekend labeled Fallout Shelter. These parties of course will be featured in some of the hottest nightspots Detroit has to offer. The 2014 Fallouts were sold out so be sure to snag presale tickets if you plan on attending. Two nights of Fallout Shelter After Hours have been announced at Populux. Eddie Fowlkes & Moodymann on Saturday and Juan Atkins and Delano Smith on Sunday. More info on the Charivari Fallout Shelter After Parties below.
As you can see below Charivari is staying true to it’s origins by showcasing plenty local talent Detroit has to offer. I think it’s great to see a new festival gaining a following and further respect while keeping it local, presenting at a beautiful, iconic Detroit landmark, and all while making it free to the public.
