Moog Fest is back again this year and will return to Asheville, North Carolina in 2014 for three-days of sun and music, running from April 25 to 27. The annual festival created by iconic synthesizer company Moog celebrates the innovative spirit of its founder, Dr. Bob Moog. Hot off the heels of announcing their new partnership with Paxahau, the Detroit based producer of the Movement Electronic Music Festival and Detroit Jazzfest the festival is ready to run again. "Moogfest is not just about Moog or music; it's about celebrating the creative, forward-thinking spirit of both Bob and the city of Asheville,” said Emmy Parker, Moog's senior brand manager. “We'll shine a light on inventors, new media artists, circuit benders, programmers, and people with ideas that could change the way we experience music, art and performance." The new springtime dates for Moogfest 2014 allow for daytime programming in which the intersection of music and technology will be showcased against the backdrop of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains.
Past Moogfest performers include Keith Emerson, Orbital, Thomas Dolby, M83, Massive Attack, Tangerine Dream, Amon Tobin, St. Vincent, Richie Hawtin, Squarepusher, Bernie Worrell, Flying Lotus, The Flaming Lips, Terry Riley, Richard Devine, Rodelius, Hot Chip, and many others.
