Due to the temporary suspension of Foro Normandie, both PLAY 1 and PLAY 2 will take place at the Casino Metropolitano, located in Tacuba 15, Colonia Centro. We hope this does not cause any inconveniences and we can have a great time at this new venue.

Also, Powell, who was scheduled for PLAY 2, has cancelled his presentation at our 23th edition of MUTEK.MX due to personal reasons. He shared the following statement via his agents:

“We’re sorry to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances beyond his control Powell is unable to perform at this year’s edition of MUTEK.MX. Powell’s team would like to extend their gratitude to the festival directors and staff for their time and effort spent. Powell shares the disappointment of fans for his cancellation and he (Oscar) is grateful for the MUTEK Festival organization’s support, as the team tried to keep this concert as scheduled to the best of their ability”, Powell Management (FIRST & LAST – SUREFIRE).

Due to this, we are glad to announce that Russian artist Philipp Gorbachev will come into our ranks as for PLAY 2.


The latest version of our new MUTEK.MX app for iOS and Android has all the information you will need: schedules, notifications, access to our social networks, and keeping up to date with the content that will come up during the week.
