Mutek Japan 2021

For 2021, organizers have announced dates for December, but no further details have been released as of this update (September 2021). The info below was for the 2020 event. We’ll update as new information comes to hand.

MUTEK Japan is a five-day music festival that combines electronic music, art and technology. The festival features a mix of international and local artists along with chances to see and experience the latest technology. Composers, musicians, artists and digital creators will collaborate to create unforgettable performances in an event that focuses on mutation as much as it does music and technology.

During the days there will be presentations including ‘An Overview of Mutek’, networking events, Artist Talks, discussion panels, AI demonstrations, a Touch Designer Workshop hosted by Derivative and Music Maker Sessions by Ableton.

Evening events are divided into Nocturnes, A/Visions and an Afterparty, held at Shibuya Stream Hall, Liquid Room, Line Cube Shibuya and EDGEof.

Due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions, this year’s lineup is almost excludively Japanese. Headliners include Corey Fuller + Break Ensemble x Synichi Yamamoto, Daito Manabe, Eiichi Sawado & Akiko Nakayama, and Kafuka & Kezzardrix.

Once again the main venue will be Shibuya Stream.

There is a 5-day passport available for ¥20,000 which grants access to different venues across the full schedule.
