Paxahau, Detroit’s electronic music powerhouse and producer of the annual Movement Music Festival in Hart Plaza, has revealed the lineup for its 20-year milestone celebration, Pax.20. The event will take place on Saturday, September 8th at Bert’s Warehouse in Eastern Market. Fans can expect a night reminiscent of Detroit’s famous warehouse parties, featuring Techno titan Richie Hawtin, dance music pioneer John Acquaviva, and Detroit underground legend Acid Pimp.

The event will feature two rooms, including the return of the “Funk Furnace” concept in the second room, for those wanting to take a break from the Techno mayhem in the main room.

Ages 21 and over are welcome. Advance tickets guarantee entry at the door.
