Head to Montreal this June for cutting edge art, music and conferences.
You’ve got Sonar in Barcelona promoting digital and electronic music of a European persuasion and Mutek does a very similar line in high-end intelligent installments.
This year the Montreal outpost has joined forces with digital arts festival Elektra to celebrate their 15th year anniversaries. So as EM15 you can expect a doubled up festival, with its centre in the famous Musee d’art contemporain de Montreal.
By day there are symposiums on various digital arts and music subjects, workshops, conferences and demonstrations. By night Mutek takes over the musuem and other club spaces to bring you some of the most exciting electronic music from over 100 artists, both Canadian and international. Tickets can be bought per gig or for the whole festival, and there’s no accommodation provided.
It’s also the International Digital Arts Biennial in Montreal this summer as well, so take in cutting edge art in over 30 venues across the city.
Full lineup here.
