The Mutek Festival puts Montreal on the Techno map. It features minimal techno artists from all over the world in a 5 day festival of beats and workshops. They usually have about 40 performers plus panels, workshops, and events at a variety of locations, all set to start on Wednesday and continue through Sunday. This will be the 12th edition of the Mutek Festival.
Last year's Mutek initiated a new series titled Ectoplasme3, with electro-acoustic, exploratory and noise artists collaborating for performances. The festival describes itself as on of "cutting edge electronic music and digital creativity." The lineup included Mouse on Mars, Matmos, DJ Koze and more.
