Movement Torino Music Festival 2012Following on from what was a highly successful Movement festival in Detroit back in May, DEMF’s sister festival Movement Torino will once again be taking place this October. Already recognised as one of the most anticipated festivals on the Italian dance music circuit, Movement Torino will be hosting its seventh edition from October 27th until November 3rd 2012.

Highlighting the festival’s continual growth, this year’s event will also see the inclusion of an extra night in Rome on October 31st as well as the usual jam-packed, 8 day schedule in Turin.

Exploring the electronic community like no other in Italy, Movement will explore dance music culture as a whole with a series of lectures, workshops and forums running alongside a network of events that will showcase a collection of the world’s finest DJ and producer talent. The week-long event will be housed in various inspirational venues across the city, taking in a selection of institutional and academic buildings.

Kicking off in Turin on Saturday 27th October, Movement Torino will open with a Circo Loco party featuring Seth Troxler and Martinez Brothers. The following night, The National Automobile Museum will host an October Happy Happening party with San Propper playing live, Andrés and Virgo Four. Brandt Brauer Frick will be live in concert on the 30th before the main event at Torino Expo pavillon 5 on the 31st.

Across two stages, the night will take in performances from Chris Liebing, 2manyDJs, Dubfire, Davide Squillace, Tale of Us, Shaun Reeves, Maetrik and Cobblestone Jazz who will be playing live.

On the same night, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Martinez Brothers and Matthias Tanzmann will be taking over the Salone delle Fontane in Rome.

Back in Turin, Dixon and Maceo Plex will be playing at Jam Club for a Trax morning party on November 1st before Marcellus Pittman and John Heckle man the decks at a Detroit party the following day. The festival will lower its curtains back at Jam Club on November the 3rd with a closing party featuring Apollonia, Derrick May and the event’s resident DJs.
