Canada's Mutek Festival Takes to the Road With Akufen and Stephen Beaupré
- Words: Patric Fallon
The initial line-up of Canada's Mutek festival was announced barely over a week ago, and now we have news of the electronic music soiree taking to the open road for dates throughout the US and Canada in April. Avant_Mutek Tour comes across like a Mutek lite, as it features only a handful of the acts playing at the original festival, including headliners Akufen and Stephen Beaupré, and is sponsored in part by electronic music site Resident Advisor and the Roland instrument company. Other acts featured throughout the 18-day trip and nine performances are Efdemin, Dave Aju, Sutekh, and Derek Plaslaiko, not to mention plenty of local DJs and producers in their respective cities.
