- The Montreal festival's second wave of confirmations also includes Deniz Kurtel, Benoit & Sergio, Clark, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Sendai, Shlohmo and more.
Another round of acts have been confirmed for this year's Mutek festival.
Mutek has always had a knack for balancing the party-friendly with the avant-garde, something that's clear to see in today's announcement: on the one hand there's Benoit & Sergio, Wolf + Lamb and acid pioneer A Guy Called Gerald, on the other there's Clark, Keith Fullerton Whitman and Container, who will play live in Montreal's new Satosphere , a "planetarium-style dome for digital-arts performance." Red Bull Music Academy will host a stage with, among others, Shlohmo and Sendai, Peter van Hoesen's glitchy collaborative project with Yves De May. As previously reported, Deniz Kurtel will showcase her new live act at the festival. Canadian producer Solvent has been confirmed as well.
