How will the NATO Summit affect your weekend?

May 17, 2012

Proof has a GREAT line-up this weekend, starting off tonight we are proud to have DJ Metro on the decks. Tomorrow, we start our Detroit Electronic Music Fridays with Captn20, rocking our booth before he rocks the stage at DEMF. Saturday we host your favorite residents, and Sunday Kalendr hits the decks for Sindustry Sunday.

However, some of you may be worried about road closures and traffic issues getting downtown. With so many new people in town, this is definitely NOT the weekend to stay in, and we don't want you to miss out! Here's how to stay on top of things and be a part of the NATO fueled party Proof will be having all weekend long:
