One of our favorite festivals in the world is returning for 2020 in digital format.
Charivari, the homegrown, multi-day festival that brings authentic Detroit talent to the world and to fans every summer has announced a new all-digital format in response to continuing COVID-19 lockdowns.
Charivari 2020 will be streamed on Mixcloud from July 28 to August 2, 2020.
Charivari is about more than just the DJ line-up… but they have already announced one hell of a line-up, man. Confirmed so far are Eddie Fowlkes, Delano Smith, Norm Talley, sillygirlcarmen, Ladymonix, Al Ester, Tony Dennis, DJ Minx, Gary Chandler, Steve Crawford, Ash Lauryn, DJ N1ose, Terrence Parker, John Collins, Earl McKinney, DJ Cent, DJ Magic, Czboogie, Super Dre, Father Abrham, TYLR, Rick Wilhite, Johnny Malek, Blake Baxter, Bruce Bailey, Sonya Alvarez and Juan Atkins. More to come.
In addition, the festival organizers in tandem with music education outfit Spin, Inc will be the conduit for four days of online educational programming. The Detroit Electronic Music Conference will be held in tandem with Charivari with tutorials, pro-tips from experts and conference partners Roland, Abelton, IK Multimedia, Serrato, Hercules, Melodics, Reloop, VModa and others.
Charivari – even in the flesh – is free. Buy one of these fly hats to show your support.
