Detroit's Movement music festival brings crowds from across the world

- More than 100,000 people from across the world headed to Detroit this weekend for this year's Movement music festival.

Multiple stages had some of techno's biggest names from all over, including one of the biggest headliners from Germany, Kraftwerk.

Detroit is actually the birth place of techno, started by what's known as the Belleville Three. They began in Belleville, Mich., in the early '80s and now it's a huge festival called Movement.

Event officials said it was a successful weekend, with admission going for $85 per ticket.

"It creates a positive interest in not only the place but the aspect of family of everybody -- our patrons that like to attend the event and all of us, which is altogether probably over 225-250 people just on the inside team that makes all of this happen," said Michael Fotias.
