Music festival MUTEK returns to Dubai in October.
The micro version of the five-day Canadian shindig takes place around the emirate this month and we have two weekend passes to give away.
More cerebral than your usual after dark dance-a-thon, MUTEK combines technology, digital art and music to such good effect that it’s been rostered in as part of the annual Gitex Technology Week.
Dome ‘Hemisphere 141’ will welcome clubbers to audio-visual and experimental performances at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) and at Stereo Arcade in JBR, Nocturne 1 & 2 sees British house music pioneer A Guy Called Gerald (who’s also leading workshops at DWTC), American artist Aurora Hall and exuberant Canadian artist Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, as well as other talent artists, perform on there on 18th October. Man of many aliases and layers, sound engineer and DJ Kuniyuki Takahashi, is behind the decks on 19th October.
MUTEK was formed in 2000 in Montreal to promote dance music and digital arts. It made its Dubai début in 2017. It’s a favourite with eclectic fans of electronica, so if you don’t win tickets, we can recommend picking some up at Platinumlist.net when they go live. Everything that’s happening at DWTC (and there’s more than we have room to lost) is completely free – just register at gitexfuturestars.com
Before you splash any cash, we are giving away two weekend passes worth AED 150 each for the shows at Stereo Arcade, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, JBR. When you get home, listen to your favourite disc spinners again on a pair of amazing Sennheiser headphones, which usually retail for AED800, which we’re including as part of the prize package.
This competition is now closed. Thanks to all that entered. The winner was: Saima Umer
