We’ve got what you’ve been waiting for, Deeeeetroit! Still Loading; like yo
Get up + Get Out + Get Moving
Our abstract art & techno music festival, Still Loading, brings an open air concept with interactive art installations in Beacon Park – Downtown Detroit for a two day, free weekend! 18+
Our vision will create an ambience for individuals with accessibility & mobility limitations into a barrier free event. Our event organizer, Meli Di, was the 2019 TedxClosing speaker on disability awareness as lady business owner living in downtown Detroit.
“This mission will empower event planners on how to overcome challenges faced in accessibility & mobility using our agency playbook. This playbook is a step-up in leadership organization on how events should be strategizing for “inclusivity” welcoming all individuals on multiple mobility levels,” shares DiVietri. “Still Loading, will become the prime example on how thought leadership will always be advised to include ADA compliance guidelines for a barrier-free festival. This is only the beginning; an ADA platform, LED wall, ramps at entry points, drop off sections are just a few!’
The ladies of Di Techno have masterminded an entire art festival under the radar during the pandemic! Our team is entirely self-funded, but fueled by passion & charmed city officials with the mission statement; our organizer even won the “Spirit of Detroit” for this hustle. 🔥🔥
Our two live music tents support Detroit local DJs including Dj Godfather, Tony Nova, Metawav, Versace James, Silly Girl Carmen, Mike ‘Agent X’ Clark, Dj Missydi — with special guest headliner TONY GUERRA with tropical sounds that you don’t wanna miss from Miami / Venezuela!
🔥 Our spice keeps getting hotter 🔥
The line up continues into the creative side with our abstract artists, live painters and art builders; Nick Mahaffey, Tyler Graves, Sanda Cook, Danny Pachman, Justin Cinquemani, BearLobos are just a few to name!
Our art & music experience unfolds at Beacon Park – 1901 Grand River Avenue – Detroit
