MUTEK x COVID-19 Statement
March 25, 2020
Wednesday, March 25, 2020. The plan had been to reveal our 21st edition’s first wave of artists today. Meanwhile, COVID-19 is front and centre, and we’ve decided to delay the first round of announcements by a few weeks, by which time we hope that some semblance of normalcy will have returned.
During this period of inevitable confinement, every member of the MUTEK team has continued to work—from home—with the unwavering intention of bringing you all a memorable 21st edition. As it stands, the festival will continue to run from August 25 to 30, 2020 and we hope that soon, as the effects of the pandemic wane, we’ll be able to gradually unveil the fruits of months of preparation.
In the meantime, our thoughts are chiefly with healthcare workers and with everyone who continues to provide essential services, but also with artists, technicians, agents, festivals, concert venues, independent labels and media, and with all cultural actors who’ve had to suspend their activities.
We encourage you to support your favourite artists by purchasing their music, either on online platforms or via independent record shops’ websites, and encouraging you to stay curious and continue to discover new musical and visual worlds. Together we can fashion a radiant summer!
