Market Artists


For the 5th consecutive year, the MUTEK Market, a career acceleration and business development program for industry professionals, makes its return with an exciting selection of 20 Canadian artists. The Market’s mission: provide support and essential tools to empower artists in their career growth. This includes several months of training and the creation of customized Electronic Press Kits (EPKs) tailored to participating artists.

More than a support system, the Market serves as a bridge between buyers and artists — through one-to-one business meetings held one week prior to the festival. In previous editions, MUTEK Market 2023 fostered more than 500 meetings in the span of 2 days, averaging 35 connections per artist. Overall, the event brought together 20 artists and 130 industry professionals. Creating a space for negotiation, establishing a solid basis for sales and initiating valuable connections lie at the root of the Market’s mission.

For this special edition, Q&A sessions with Market artists will be organized during the MUTEK Forum and moderated by Nyshka Chandran (Futures Editor at Resident Advisor).
