I haven't been to Detroit since last October and am excited to be going back today. The festival appears to get watered down over the years (as all do), but there's always some good stuff goin on. I usually just go to the parties, swim with friends at Belle Isle and go thrift/record shopping. Brad over at People's Records always has some amazing stuff. It doesn't have to be so hectic if you actually wanna enjoy your weekend. Here's the lineup regardless...and yeah I still call it DEMF.
