As we approach the commencement of the 16th edition of MUTEK next month, the festival has announced the final stages and programming which will include the free outdoor stage EXPÉRIENCE, the nighttime experimental PLAY programs, and its daytime program DIGI_SECTION.

Running from Thursday to Sunday this year, the free outdoor EXPÉRIENCE stage will feature some heavyweights of the scene with Canadian hero Mathew Jonson joining Kode9, Adrian Sherwood, and Detroit techno master Dan Bell at the new Parterre location, which will see a substantial increase in capacity.

MUTEK has also announced DIGI_SECTION, a daytime program featuring a digital technology and music symposium, artist Q&As, panels, presentations, workshops and showrooms. Taking place at the Phi Centre from Tuesday, May 26 to Saturday, May 30, DIGI_SECTION will be focused towards music enthusiasts and creative professionals, with speakers, interviews and hands-on workshops from big names such as Ableton, littleBits Electronics, Roland, and Korg.

You can find more information on all of the above here, with the full lineup schedule for EXPÉRIENCE below; along with the MUTEK preview mix.
