(‘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 2016 is a Electronic Dance Music Festival presenting the greatest assembly of Detroit based electronic dance music artists. The success of our 2015 festival necessitated a site change to larger accommodations on 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 6th and 7th, 2016 as we evolve the spirit of "Charivari" into a loud and elaborate musical celebration featuring electronic music in all its celebrated forms.

This is a ticketed event this year so get your early bird advance tickets. Tickets are on sale at some of the finest record stores.

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 2016 is excited to continue this annual entertainment happening hosted on one of Detroit’s most celebrated and enduring gems. Join our party.
