The organisation will dedicate its social media channels to helping the response to the disaster.
Organisers made the announcement following the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that hit Mexico City and surrounding areas on Tuesday, September 19th. More than 300 people have been killed and over 4,000 injured in the disaster, which took place on the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 Mexico City earthquake.
Scheduled between October 11th and 15th, MUTEK.MX is due to host sets from Alva Noto, Squarepusher and Babyfather across a number of Mexico City venues.
Read an excerpt from the statement, which also encourages readers to donate to Mexico's Red Cross.
We are checking every single detail and venue included in our program for the upcoming edition of MUTEK.MX 2017 to make sure that all planned activities are carried out exceptionally, while guaranteeing safety of all attendants, one of our most important goals. We will inform about any modification and we suggest to keep an eye for any news on our social media.Read the full statement here.
Because of this, we are momentarily putting on hold ticket sales for all our events until further notice. We think that right now all our help and resources should be with the ones in need, whether donating goods or helping out economically.
If you live outside of Mexico, the best way to help is by donating to Mexico's Red Cross, the social initiative Omaze or to the Topos (Mexico's earthquake rescue specialists). Deposits are deeply appreciated. Our hearts and minds are with everyone who has been affected.
