Well, they’ve done it again, citizens of Earth! Our Robot Overlords have generously offered us Moogfest 2014 in Asheville, NC, and this year they’ve included some of their own in the lineup! That’s right, citizens: Moogfest 2014 will feature three nights of everyone’s favorite man-machines, Kraftwerk! In a stunning 3D extravaganza! And that’s not all, citizens! Moogfest 2014 will feature many of the world’s most famous cyborg musicians, including Giorgio Moroder, M.I.A., Flying Lotus, Pet Shop Boys, Moderat, Holly Herndon, Wolf Eyes, Dan Deacon, Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, Black Dice, Machinedrum, Factory Floor, RJD2, Com Truise, ADULT., Daedalus, Hieroglyphic Being, Shigeto, Le1f, Riff Raff, The Gaslamp Killer, Bernie Worrell Orchestra, showcases from labels and locals like RVNG Intl., Warp, DFA, Hopscotch, and much more!
But there’s even more, citizens! Named after one of the progenitors of modern day synthesis, Robert Moog, Moogfest is more than just a music festival. It’ll also feature a massive music and technology conference including panels, workshops, and talks by some of the biggest names in electronic music, artist and engineer alike. Synth pioneers Don Buchla, Herb Deutsch, Tom Oberheim, and Dave Smith will all be there (among many others) — don’t miss the Thunderdome battle.
Our robotic rulers have designated April 23-27 in Asheville, NC as Moogfest 2014’s time-space location. Ticketing Phase 2 has already commenced so you’d better hurry if you want to get your greasy human hands on them.
