With five nonstop days of live performances, MUTEK pulled out all the stops for their 16th (and most impressive) edition yet. From the outdoor stage at the Quartier des spectacles, to the secretive rooms of the Musée d’art contemporain and the familiar, vast hall of the Métropolis , this year’s installation of the electronic arts festival boasted spectacular shows and attracted plenty of wildly diverse people in the process.

While there were standout performances by the likes of Dasha Rush, Rrose, Nortec Collective, and Takami Nakomoto who could undeniably be reviewed and graded for your reading pleasure, we’ve decided instead to focus our lens on the people, creating a photo album, if you will, of the individuals that make the festival great. From brilliant light displays during midnight performances, to sunny afternoons spent at the free stage, MUTEK’s 2015 program had something for everyone. Didn’t go this year? No problem, you can get a taste for it all here.

Without further ado, here are the faces (and silhouettes) of MUTEK 2015.
