Charivari Detroit 2017 – The Charivari Detroit electronic music festival returns for its fourth year, taking place Friday August 4th through Sunday August 6th. Now at a new location West Riverfront Park, located along West Jefferson Avenue between Rosa Parks Boulevard and Joe Louis Arena, with the Detroit skyline and Ambassador Bridge as backdrops, is a 20-acre green oasis that features an extra-wide River Walk, three pathways linking the waterfront to neighborhoods, security cameras, call boxes, benches, bike racks and plenty of wide-open space for activities.
Early tickets are currently available from the Charivari Detroit website.
Charivari has continued to stay true to it’s origins by showcasing the best local talent Detroit has to offer. 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.
Charivari has announced the initial lineup for the Detroit festival and sounds like there’s still more great acts to come.
