(‘Shahr uh vahr ee’) a loud and elaborate musical celebration
Welcome to an event showcasing the fastest growing music genre EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Charivari Detroit 2015 is a FREE Electronic Dance Music Festival presenting the greatest assembly of the progenitors of Electronic Dance Music. The success of our 2014 festival necessitated a site change to the larger accommodations of Belle Isle State Park. Bigger location. Bigger line-up.
Historically “Charivari,” a word dating back to the Middle Ages was used to describe a loud public ritual. Join devotees on August 1st and 2nd, 2015 as we evolve the spirit of “Charivari” into a loud and elaborate musical celebration featuring electronic music in all its celebrated forms.
In addition to the Charivari, we will offer Fallout Shelter our branded preview and after parties. These parties featured in some of the hottest nightspots will be the perfect complement to the days’ activities. The 2014 Fallouts were sold out. Get your advance tickets early.
Belle Isle State Park is America’s largest city-owned island park. Belle Isle is larger than New York City’s famed Central Park and both were designed by prominent urban park designer Frederick Law Olmsted. The 982-acre island located in the Detroit River, between the United States mainland and Canada, remains one of Detroit’s premier attractions. It is connected to Detroit by the MacArthur Bridge.
Rich with history and natural beauty, Belle Isle Park is a Detroit treasure and Michigan’s 102nd state park. Under terms of a 30-year lease agreement with the City of Detroit, the city maintains ownership of Belle Isle while the Michigan Department of Natural Resources manages the island according to the high standards of Michigan’s award-winning state park system.
Belle Isle has an incredible range of things to see and do, including 5 miles of scenic shoreline, cultural institutions, historical monuments, sports facilities, and outdoor recreation. During your visit, consider staying awhile and enjoy great views of the Detroit skyline, Windsor (Canada), freighter traffic, and the Ambassador Bridge from the beach or shoreline picnic areas. There are dozens of great attractions on Belle Isle.
Charivari Detroit 2015 is poised to become a new annual entertainment happening celebrating Detroit’s contribution to electronic music as the birthplace of Techno and the evolution of the genre in all its forms. Join our party for two days of free family fun on one of Detroit’s most celebrated and enduring gems. Belle Isle.
