The Year Ahead
MUTEK's 10th edition approaches
March 13, 2009
As many of you will recall, in February we co-hosted an event in Berlin at the Panoramabar called PASS THE TORCH, which for us signified the end of one 10th edition -- Club Transmediale's -- and the beginning of another -- ours.
Here at MUTEK we took the symbolism of that showcase to heart and used the passing of the torch to help inspire the assembly of an anniversary event that would match the scope, ambition, and personality of that which our friends at Club Transmediale delivered, while simultaneously matching what we imagine a MUTEK_10 celebration to embody.
On March 16th : We will announce the main headliners of the 10th edition and you will be able to purchase discounted festival passports until April 14th.
On April 15th : We will reveal our general festival line-up, and tickets to individual events will become available.
On May 13th : We will host a press conference that will reveal all the last details of the program, including our numerous special events, conferences and workshops.
What to expect from MUTEK_10
This year's anniversary edition will constitute an expansion of the programming MUTEK has become known for over the last nine years. We have many reasons to celebrate our first decade of accomplishments and we will begin by opening a new chapter of the Montreal festival with an expanded format, intended to offer maximum value for the festival-goers who come to MUTEK from around the world.
After years of operating at full capacity in its current venues, the festival's 10th edition will introduce new showcases, venues, and ideas.
