DETROIT (CelebrityAccess) — A pair of Detroit-based electronic music festivals have been postponed until 2015.
The long-running free Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF) which had been planned for Campus Martius Park and the related conference and showcase Federation of Electronic Music Technology, which was set to take place at Ford Field on the weekend of July 4th are both a no-go, at least for 2014. Organizers for the events say that they will return in 2015.
A post on the festival's website cites "unforeseen limitation on the festival site due to the important M-1 rail construction as well as a number of exciting festival developments that require more time to ensure their proper presentation” as the reasons behind the cancellation.
The festival and conference, first launched in 2000, have been held annually in a variety of incarnations since, produced since 2006 by Detroit-based promoter Paxahau. – Staff Writers
