MUTEK is pleased to announce the festival’s first foray into the United States, taking place in San Francisco this May. The groundbreaking electronic music festival will present works by musicians from the Bay Area and around the world at 9 venues across the city, including Bimbo’s, Gray Area Grand Theatre, Herbst Theatre, Heron Arts, the San Francisco Mint, Mezzanine, The Midway, and more. MUTEK.SF will present live electronic music performances, art installations, audiovisual works, panel discussions, food vendors, and more, adding up to a mind-bendingly eclectic yet cohesive experience for fans in the U.S. The spirit of the San Francisco underground will permeate the weekend, as the city’s potent mixture of technological innovation, intellectualism, immigration, and futurism provides a backdrop for MUTEK.SF’s programming trajectory. The performances will be separated into four unique tracks: Digi Lab, A/Visions, Nocturne, and Experience.
