Detroit’s powerhouse electronic music festival Charivari last week announced its dates for 2016, with the event taking place this year on August 6 and 7. The recently established festival began its musical mission in 2014, with festivities occurring at Milliken State Park. Last year, Charivari Detroit relocated to Belle Isle Park, where it will take place again this year, spreading local Detroit talent across three stages.
This year’s lineup includes Mike Huckaby, Juan Atkins, Eddie Fowlkes, Delano Smith, Rick Wilhite, and Terrence Parker (who will perform with Merachka). Also set to perform are Stacey Hale, Patrice Scott, Rick Wade, Keith Worthy, Ataxia, and Kai Alce. Although the event was free in years past, Charivari will charge admission in 2016, with early bird tickets already available at local record stores. A kick-off event will be held on Friday, August 5 at The Works, with more details to come.
