Montréal's MUTEK Festival has revealed the full lineup for its 2022 event, taking place across a number of venues later this month.

The lineup features more than 80 audio and visual performances by over 100 artists, spread out across six days and nights. The programming draws widely on local talent from Montréal, as well as performers from 21 different countries.

Programming includes the 'Nocturne' series of shows, focussing on immersive and rhythmic electronic music, the 'Play' series platforming experimentation, the large-scale audiovisual project 'A/Visions', the free outdoor Expérience stage, and a one-off audiovisual collaboration between Max Cooper and the Architecture Social Club which will combine music with a 3D light field.

Among the other artists playing this year's festival are Nik Colk Void, Loraine James, Caterina Barbieri and Carmen Villain. A number of different tickets for the event are available, including full passes, week and weekend passes, and entry to one-off shows.

The festival's industry forum will also return to the Agora Hydro-Québec at UQAM's Cœur des sciences from August 23 to 26. Events there will include a panel discussion on artificial intelligence in music, extended reality in audiovisual performances, music's adaptation to Web3, marginalised communities in electronic music, and more.

Elsewhere, MUTEK will launch a new project called 'Immersive Collection', which has seen five artists rework previous MUTEK performances into three unique extended reality artworks. They can be experienced for free at the festival, and will be later be available for download via online content stores such as Steam.

MUTEK Festival will take place from August 23 to 28, 2022. Find more information here.
