Moogfest 2010 takes place Oct. 29-31 at various venues in Asheville, N.C., including the Asheville Civic Center (which houses both the 6,000-capacity Arena and the smaller 2,400-seat Thomas Wolfe Auditorium) and The 1,000-capcity Orange Peel.
The annual fest celebrates Robert Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesizer. Asheville was Moog’s home for the last 30 years of his life and is also the headquarters of the company he founded in 1963, Moog Music.
Look out for Moogfest artists using the Minimoog Voyager, the Little Phatty, the Etherwave Theremin, Moogerfoogers, and the new Moog Guitar on stage.
Performers were chosen “for their role in creating unique and groundbreaking musical experiences that embody the essence of Bob Moog’s visionary and creative spirit.”
Previously announced artists include Massive Attack, MGMT, Thievery Corporation, Hot Chip, Pretty Lights, Girl Talk, Panda Bear, Dan Deacon, Four Tet, RJD2, El-P, Dam Funk, School Of Seven Bells, Matmos and Emeralds.
