We are searching for an opening act for this year’s 100% LIVE party!! Contestants will submit a 30-minute video of themselves playing live and those videos will be voted by the public. We feel it is important to help the community of live performing artists grow and be discovered. Our 100% LIVE event series was created because we felt there was a lack of exposure for live techno acts performing in Detroit during Movement festival weekend. There are loads of DJs, but we believe that live artists are a key element of the techno scene and should be showcased. The 100% LIVE event series is unlike any other during movement and we want you to be a special part of it!
