ASHEVILLE, NC – March 11, 2014 – Moogfest, the five-day festival dedicated to the synthesis of technology, art, science and music, which Mashable calls “No Ordinary Festival”, is six weeks away and today announces the daily schedule plus single day passes. Since its inception in 2004, Moogfest has been a magnet for artists, engineers, and enthusiasts of Dr. Robert Moog and his legacy to meet, share, create and collaborate. With an experimental lineup of daytime conference programming featuring cultural, artistic and technological luminaries and punctuated by a line up of diverse landmark nightly performances, Moogfest honors the creativity and inventiveness of Bob Moog and pays tribute to the legacy of the analog synthesizer.
By Night – Five evenings of landmark musical performances by new trailblazers, early pioneers of electronic music, and major headliners in over ten venues across the city, featuring landmark performances by electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk 3D; iconic electro-pop duo Pet Shop Boys; self-declared “anti popstar” M.I.A.; super producer Nile Rodgers with his band CHIC; plus a rare performance by UK’s Darkstar; Animal Collective’s Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks featuring former members of Dirty Projectors and Ponytail; German heavyweight trio Moderat; Mad Decent’s Dillon Francis and Riff Raff; Zed’s Dead; El-P; and Factory Floor; plus over 70 more artists spanning the 5 day festival.
By Day – Five days of mind-expanding conversation, experimentation, and collaboration for creative and technology professionals across seven venues in downtown Asheville. The conference is guided by the world’s preeminent thought leaders and pioneers of music and technology, including Simpsons and Futurama’s David X. Cohen; the ArchAndroid herself, Janelle Monae; improvised performances by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Bradford Cox, and Dan Deacon; Google’s brightest minds exploring the future of audio; plus conversations with interdisciplinary research laboratory MIT Media Labs; MAKE Magazine’s Mark Fraunfelder; OMNI Reboot, a magazine at the intersection of science, technology, art, culture, design, and metaphysics; videogame arts and culture publication Kill Screen; and more one of a kind programming exclusive to Moogfest.
