Our environmental impact

The festival’s production and the audience’s participation involves greenhouse gas emissions. 1% of the price of each passport, pass, and ticket will be donated to EarthPercent, a charity founded by Brian Eno to help combat the impact the music industry has on the planet — all donations will be matched by EarthPercent.

Proud partner of the Planetair association for 12 years, MUTEK is continuing its involvement in offsetting emissions and promoting a responsible festival for its audience and our environment.

Come to MUTEK


Our action plan and collaborations with various experts allow us to continuously work on improving accessibility and reducing barriers to participation in our events. Our current objectives focus on risk reduction, prevention of harassment of any kind, and physical access to our spaces.

Clearly designated relaxation areas, safe spaces, and a seated area away from the stage are provided at all our events with appropriate lighting and sound levels. Trained volunteers in risk reduction will be present.

Visual and audio effects may affect some individuals in a negative way. Photosensitivity varies from person to person; please note that while we do our best to identify potentially triggering performances ahead of time, many of our shows are audiovisual and could contain certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns, which may be triggering.

For a comprehensive overview of our measures, please visit the Accessibility page.
