In preparing this year’s lineup of events, we have selected from the deep talent and history of Detroit area DJ/producers as well as top-level national talent from the circuit, with the goal of showcasing the unique sounds of Detroit alongside the progressive underground sounds at the forefront of electronic dance music.
Our Thursday night Opening Event on 9/15/22 at Spot Lite will feature Detroit legend DJ Adriel Fantastique.
Friday’s 9/16/22 GEAR Party at Marble Bar will have a leather/fetish theme and feature DJs TYLR_ and Joe Gauthreaux.
On 9/17/22, the Motorball 2022 Saturday Main Event at Magic Stick will honor both the legacy and the future of dance music with an opening set by DJ Chuck Arida, whose music helped to establish Motorball as a major event in the late 1990s, followed by DJ Alex Acosta, one of the leading studio artists and live DJs playing on the international circuit. Detroit DJ Stacey Hotwaxx Hale will preside over the turntables on the outdoor balcony.
Our notorious Afterhours event at the Olympus/Eagle venue will feature a deep techno-house set by Morabito, one of the all-time dance floor legends, with an opening set by Detroit artist King Kii.
To close the weekend, on Sunday 9/18/22, we’ll take over the TV Lounge space in Detroit with a 10-hour mini-festival of dance music, past and present, with DJs Mike Fotias, Jace M, and a special tea dance set by Morabito.
