...and the return of Moogfest to Asheville, NC!
'Moogfest is a celebration that honors the creativity and inventiveness of Dr. Robert Moog (a resident of Asheville during the last 25+ years of his life), and the legacy of the analog synthesizer.' The festival has featured many "Electronic" based artists, including; Massive Attack, Devo, Pretty Lights, Thievery Corporation, Moby, The Flaming Lips, TV on the Radio & Thomas Dolby. The 2014 festival is now being organized by Detroit based promoters, Paxahau, and has been moved to the Spring, while increasing to 5 days. Also, 'Moogfest will have an expanded local focus, daytime programming, new media art installations and educational exhibits.'
Will Gregory (of Goldfrapp) and Adrian Utley (of Portishead) share their 'favourite bits of studio equipment', especially Moog, with Future Music Magazine
