Attendees can also enjoy live music from Detroit-based DJ Thornstryker and Mami Wata, as part of the Downtown Detroit Partnership’s ongoing Beach Party series offering free entertainment from top local and regional bands and DJs on Thursdays throughout the summer – all while soaking in the views and vibes at Downtown Detroit’s urban oasis.
