Detroit Electronic Music Festival

Major festivals dedicated to electronic music, are held not only in Europe. One of the most important events taking place in the US, is the Detroit music festival (” Detroit Electronic Music Festival “, abbreviated as DEMF . also known as the ” Tech Fest “). It is held annually in Detroit since 2000. The event name was changed several times: in 2003-2004, it was called “Movement”, in 2005 – “Fuse-In”, and since 2006 he is called “Movement: Detroit Electronic Music Festival “. Although each name change also meant a change of the organizers of the festival, every year it follows the same traditions, gathering artists and DJs that reflect the latest trends in electronic music.

The first electronic music festival in Detroit was “World Party”, held in 1994. It was organized by Carol Marvin and companies “Pop Culture Media”. He, along with its partners (the Dave Sooreh and Kurt Martin) was responsible for conducting the Detroit jazz festivals. In “World Party”, held in the arena “Joe Louis”, participated DJs Derrik May and Kevin Saunderson. The event turned out to be unprofitable because of some failures in the organization, but he played a big role in promoting the idea of an electronic music festival Continue reading

We are not talking about the night of 31 December to 1 January, and on pagan holidays, which mark a change of season, the rebirth of life, the emergence of something new. And, as a rule, these holidays (Carnival in Russia, Mardi Gras in Western Europe and the USA, Fastnacht the Germans, Apokries in Greece, Carnival in Italy and Brazil) occur in the late winter — early spring.

What is celebrated at this time in the territory of Montenegro? It would seem that the answer is obvious — once the Montenegrins are Orthodox, like Russians, so too the carnival. However, this is not so, because the Carnival and Orthodoxy have nothing in common.

The history of the braided lace more interesting! There was a time when many cities of the modern Montenegrin coast was under the influence of Venice (and she’s famous for its carnival in the world!), so it is from this city and came to the Balkans tradition of CARNIVAL.
