Since its conception in 2000, DEMF has catered to the wide spectrum of the electronic scene by hosting a massive three-day festival with both seasoned artists and up-and-comers in the city that witnessed the birth of techno.
Produced by Paxahau Event Productions, DEMF is widely recognized for attracting thousands of domestic and international festival-goers each year during Memorial Day weekend. With yet another impressive lineup featuring legends Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, Carl Craig, dozens of EDM rising stars and hip-hop icons, this year’s festival promises to offer another memorable weekend for guests.
