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.

For anybody not a secret that almost every people of planet Earth have inherited from their ancestors own tradition of celebrating the new year. 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.
