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 groundbreaking artists, the festival also features various film screenings, Q & A sessions, and art exhibits. This year, the event is featuring a special presentation known as an "Illustrated Talk" from legendary musician and visual artist Brian Eno. During the "Illustrated Talk", Eno will discuss concepts as diverse as time, sound, and the future of art in correlation with the event itself . Eno will also be presenting an interactive art exhibit called "77 Million Paintings" which fuses sound, light, and visuals into a profound, cutting-edge experience.

Last year's Moogfest 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.
