DLECTRICITY is back and bigger than ever. The festival brings electronic art, light projections, installations, and performances from all over the world to Detroit for two incredible days.

This will be Dlectricity’s third festival in the city. The last DLECtRICITY was in 2014. Lights and graphics were projected onto buildings in Midtown like the DIA and the Public Library. The College of Creative Studies’ Sculpture Park was filled with illuminating installations, my favorite was a neon house.

But that was three years ago and Detroit has grown alot since 2014. I can only imagine how cool Dlectricity is going to be this year. With three years to plan, I hope the festival is above and beyond.


I’m excited to check out “Luminaria Magna” on the corner of Woodward and Warren. Both Friday and Saturday, some of the best DJ’s in the city will be playing from 7-Midnight. Keep an eye out for my favorites Ian Fink, Anthony Jasper. Saturday: Shigeto, Haintso of the Seraphine Collective

Other things that look particularly cool:

“The Shadows of Slendrotron (The Monkey God’s Great Leap)” a robotic puppet show in the CCS Sculpture Garden

The Detroit Institute of Arts  “Electric Park” at Woodward and Kirby

“Neon Repoetry” at The N’Namdi Center for Contemporary Art

Light Bike Parade Saturday Starting a 8

I recommend bringing snacks, beverages and a blanket so you can post up and enjoy the visuals and performances.

After the programming ends at Midnight, check Out So Vague on Friday at the Whiskey Disco and Booty Freaks on Saturday Night at Temple Bar.
