    I spoke with Ryan Crosson about this in January and he kind of laughed in disbelief when I asked him if it was happening.

    There are techno bike tours here: http://www.wheelhousedetroit.com/tou...aspx?tourid=32

    If you are awake on Saturday going to the Eastern Market is always good people watching. http://www.detroiteasternmarket.com/ Farm fresh fruit, homemade goods, stores, restaurants, artists galleries. Best pizza joint in the city is Suppinos right on the side of the market. Nice graffiti around there too. Plus bonus points if you see others walking around with a Movement wrist band! In fact this would be the most "authentic Detroit" experience.

    Russell Industrial Center is a huge artists community. They have a bazaar open but I have heard the merch available isn't the best (thinks socks, belts and used CD/DVD's). But some of the artists there have their studios open to check out stuff. Haven't done this myself but there are legitimate galleries there. http://ricdetroit.org/2010/?id=home

    Guardian building lobby is a sight to behold. It's right downtown. Couple clothing stores and coffee shops in there as well.

    Heidelberg would be a short cab away from the city but is always pretty cool. http://www.heidelberg.org/

    Just walking around the midtown area (where old miami is) is neat. It's thriving again. A few stores, restaurants, wayne state university, DIA, Historical museum, artist galleries are all in this area. http://detroitmidtown.com/05/directory.php?msub=6

    For the good Christians out there there are many architecturally fascinating churches in the downtown and surrounding areas. Sweetest Heart of Mary, Old St. Mary's, SS peter and paul jesuit, holy trinity etc. etc. Google those names or historic detroit churches and you could spend a day checking them out!

    As far as seeing the abandoned buildings:

    I don't do it but it is done quite often. Do be careful and it is not recommended. Some moron, and it happens about once a month, had to get rescued from falling down a few flights of stairs in the train station last week. Plus in most of the buildings illegal scrapping is going on and you don't want to get caught up with those people. Also most of the buildings in and around downtown are either being rehabbed, have been torn down, or are better secured lately. (Places I have heard lately require ladders to get in and dodging security guards.) You have to go some of the outlying warehouse areas and most of those buildings aren't all that significant really and are more dangerous and loaded with scrappers. If you want to go back home saying you walked around an abandoned building in Detroit go ahead and give it a shot I guess, but it could be a quick way to end your weekend.

    Restaurants that I can recommend:

    Downtown: Detroit Beer Co., Suppinos, Mudgies Deli, Russel St. Deli, Bucharest Grill, Slows BBQ, Small Plates (if you want a nice night out), American or Lafayette coney islands, Grand Trunk Pub (A.K.A. Foran's-they'll have technos throughout the weekend with awesome Michigan microbrews!!!), above Grand Trunk Pub is Motor City wine for the vino lovers out there and they are also techno music friendly, Jacoby's for good beer. Any of the bars downtown will always have a decent burger available otherwise google the rest of the places for locations and hours.

    Midtown: Honest John's Bar, Union Street, Avalon Bread Co., Cass Cafe, Byblos, Slows BBQ to go (much quicker than the sit down restaurant) Motor City Brew Works (they supply the beer for Need I Say More), Traffic Jam and Snug. There are a bunch more places near the university that I am not sure will be open because the students won't be there.

    Have fun! As with any city travel in a group, don't look or act like a moron.
    Thanks for posting!!!!

    They did presales. I had one. The problem was that they also did door sales, and did not hold enough spots for people with pre-sales to gain admission. They didn't even have a separate line for people with pre-sales versus people just trying to pay at the door.

    So, I would definitely suggest getting there early. The first time I tried to go was at like midnight and it was already mobbed with people.

    The KMS party looks rad, but I wish it was more of a throwback style event. Some of the buildings that they used to have parites at are intact and empty. Something raw and gritty would be nice. Im not one of those anti-corporate types, but c'mon: red bull, beatport, traktor, beatsme, etc? Seems to be missing the point of what the creators of techno had in mind when they, you know, created techno. My biggest fear with this is that they will be using some bullshit DJ tool like Serato, or Traktor, instead of the original vinyl these guys made.

    They don't have to spin vinyl to put on a good set. I've seen about half of that lineup in the last 2 years, and they all put on great sets. Stacey Pullen and Mike Huckaby in particular will be great supporting acts for this.

    I just got my tickets in the mail. 19 days! This is my first year and I'm beyond excited. I'm just beginning to get into the world electronic music and DJs and I'm using DEMF as a sort of initiation.

    It's a very old church. Main area, which is St. Andrew's proper, is just a big room, with a stage with an upper balcony. The basement is the legendary venue The Shelter (8 mile/eminem fame). Just a basement dwelling but the sound just slams into you from the concrete walls. Upstairs, if it's open, is a nice airy room and often called the Burn's room. Overall a great venue with a TON of Detroit music history of techno, hip hop and rock!

    Mhmmm.

    So far my agenda for the weekend is looking a little like this:
    Friday: (Shit Show flight to DTW) -> hang out with sibs for a bit/liquor run -> Life & Death party. Maybe a little Bang Tech if I have time.
    Saturday: Brunch -> fest -> Circo Loco -> get some fucking sleep
    Sunday: Shit Show -> fest -> Rare Form for a few hours (leaving the fest early probably) -> KMS 25
    Monday: Need I Say More -> fest -> Hot Creations
    Tuesday: get some fucking sleep -> Slow's -> home? Home.

    Mine is largely the same, except not sure if I'm after-partying on Saturday and I'd say my Monday after party status is dubious, at best

    Yea, I don't know how much of Circo Loco I'll really make it to, since I plan to sleep this year.

    And I'm fully expecting to get to Monday's party and find it is over capacity. :P At which point I'll just party in my room all night.

    Got my ticket today.

    Since I gambled my life on trying to move and fucking failed, I'm probably just not going to do any after parties this year and hope somehow I have enough cash for food. Unless I get a decent job in the next week or something. I'm just grateful to be able to go at all.

    So as a twist of fate, I will no longer be able to make DEMF... I bought a ticket back before the main sale and have a hotel room reserved at Milner in downtown Detroit available. I have the ticket available for $60, the hotel reservation I can change to another's name; room is about $100 a night for Sat-Tues. PM me if interested. PM me if interested in either.
