RFS Preview: Mutek Montreal Music Festival Aug. 22 to 27th, 2017


For electronic music lovers in Quebec, they’ll need to look no further than MUTEK for possibly the best experience of the summer. And this year, with Montreal’s 375th in play, the events are sure to be unforgettable.

Part of the official program marking Montréal’s 375th anniversary, Canada’s preeminent hub of electronic music and digital creativity turns 18, taking the occasion to change its dates, expand its program and refresh its commitment to live performance at the intersection of music, visual art and technology. MUTEK also mobilizes its international connections to host four days of programming dedicated to the cultural metropoles of London, Mexico City, Barcelona and Berlin — exploring the contemporaneous and multi-disciplinary links between Montréal and these capitals. The fundamental DNA of the festival will continue to express values of discovery, revelation and community, emphasizing premieres, exclusive appearances and artistic ingenuity. Events will take place in the Quartier des spectacles, the Society for Arts and Technology, Monument-National, Métropolis and on the free outdoor stage of the Esplanade de la Place des Arts.

Several talented musicians will be performing, including Africaine 808, Alicia Hush, Alexis Langevin-Tetrault, Aurora Halal, and Atomatisme.
