We’re continuing our stint in the trenches on the frontlines of festival season this week. Half of the THUMP staff spent some time at Detroit’s Movement Festival—the yearly Memorial Day dance music celebration that some have taken to calling “Techno Christmas.” Features Editor Michelle Lhooq and Associate Editor Ezra Marcus explain how the festival’s non-stop slate of afterparties—both official and under-the-radar—make it electronic music endurance test unlike any other. We also spent some time at one of the weirdest EDM festivals going: the absurd patriotic spectacle of the Speedway, Indiana’s Snake Pit, which happens in the infield of the Indy 500 as the race goes on.
