Mutek & Elektra joining forces for EM15 (lineup includes Holly Herndon, Nicolas Jaar, OPN, Tim Hecker, Ben Frost, more)

EM15

Celebrating their 15th anniversaries in style, Montréal’s high profile digital arts festival Elektra, and electronic music and digital creativity institution MUTEK, have joined forces, synchronized their dates and created one powerhouse combined event this year. To accommodate their ambitious plans, this two-festival-in-one affair, christened EM15, has extended itself by a day to make room for its shared agenda. Now starting on Tuesday May 27, programming runs six days until Sunday June 1, and will feature more than 100 Canadian and international artists, and several new venues.

The multi-venue Montreal festival EM15 revealed its full lineup which includes Nicolas Jaar (with some his friends like Will Epstein and Sasha Spielberg), Donato Dozzy, Ricardo Villalobos, Lee Bannon, Voices from the Lake, Archie Pelago, Heatsick, Richie Hawtin, Ben Frost, Holly Herndon, Egyptrixx, Jonas Reinhardt, Oneohtrix Point Never, Tim Hecker and more. Tickets, including festival passes and individual show tickets, are on sale now.

Full day-by-day lineup below…
