Named after musical pioneer and visionary Robert Moog, Moogfest is a three day, multi-venue event held over the weekend of October 28-30 in downtown Asheville, North Carolina- where Moog himself lived for over 30 years. In addition to a dynamite lineup of participating artists, the festival also features various film screenings, Q & A sessions, and art exhibits. Last year's lineup included such sonic innovators as Devo, Massive Attack, MGMT, Hot Chip, Big Boi, Panda Bear, Four Tet, Jonsi', Pretty Lights, Caribou, and many more. This year's collection of artists promises to be even more exciting. Dedicated to the celebration of unique expressionism, Moogfest is an experience not to be missed.
