Moogfest, named after the inventor of the Moog Synthesizer (Dr. Robert Moog) has finally released its day & night line-ups. Now that the word “Moog” is stuck in your head, let us explain what they mean by day & night. Unlike a lot of regular dance music festivals, this event has a significant conversation & presentation component, with luminaries like David X. Cohen (From Futurama & The Simpsons), Janelle Monae, Nick Zinner, Giorgio Moroder, King Britt & dozens of others from the industry attending, teaching & demonstrating cutting edge music creation techniques.
While the industry meetings & powerpoint presentations are cool and all, what we were all waiting for was dat lineup, which can be found below. Kraftwerk, Sasha, Audion, Com Truise, Art Department, Mark Farina, TOKiMONSTA, Moderat, Zeds Dead, M.I.A. & Machinedrum will be in attendance, in addition to one of the only performances by CHIC ft. Nile Rodgers in the last several decades. If this is something you’re into, get to Asheville on April 23-27th. It’s gonna be worth it, we guarantee you. Single day tickets for the Weekdays of the festival can be purchased here & tickets for Saturday & Sunday are still available here.
