  2. I believe the festival is still an all ages, family friendly event. I’m sure your 16 year old son will have a blast there as well. Keep in mind there will be women around his age walking around in nearly just underwear and combat boots, so it depends on your comfort level. It def turns more into a party atmosphere once it gets dark as well. But there’s nothing better then enjoying some techno on a beautiful sunny day in Hart Plaza on the shores of the Detroit river. Have fun.
