Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul

President and Artistic Director


Aaaaaaand we’re rolling! Thanks to all for the fabulous press conference; it was a blast to have a couple of hundred excited Detroit Music Weekend folks onstage! Sponsors, Host Committee, Trustees, and artists from every corner of Metro Detroit representing every facet of the performing arts that we can squeeze onto four dynamic stages on one blockbuster day – free to the public from 11am – 7:30pm!

There’s music for every taste, plus dance, theatre, and puppetry and stuff for the kids and great food and a cool retail pavilion where you can get to know the stores and brands that are springing up around here overnight. I don’t have to remind anyone that with Aretha Franklin performing a free outdoor show, space is at a premium so plan to arrive early on June 10th and stay late!

And tickets are now onsale for the Friday night Tribute concert, a celebration of the Queen of Soul with a SuperBAND that will simply blow you away. Reach box office at 313-887-8500 or click through:
