Ricardo Villalobos cancels DEMF Performances

Due to problems obtaining his US work visa, Ricardo Villalobos has been forced to cancel his two performances this weekend in Detroit.

The celebrated DJ and producer was scheduled to headline Beatport's stage at Movement on Sunday, then play back-to-back with Cassy at the Voyage Royale afterparty on Sunday night. According to a press release sent out early this morning,
Richie Hawtin will replace Villalobos at Movement, then DJ alongside Magda at Voyage Royale, in addition to headlining the festival's opening night as Plastikman.

The announcement comes just days before what would have been Villalobos' first Motor City appearance since 2002. Movement's executive director Jason Huvaere said: "We are disappointed Ricardo is not able to make it, especially with it being so close to the festival, but the show must continue."
