Last month, Movement organizers Paxahau announced an initial lineup of 20 artists that included Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy. Wednesday's lineup announcement reveals Murphy will be playing a collaborative set with Detroit techno mainstay Carl Craig. 

This year's three-day festival marks Movement's return after being sidelined for two years by the COVID-19 pandemic.
