Moogfest 2017

Dates: May 18 – 21, 2017
Location: Durham, North Carolina

Moogfest is an annual, multi-day music, art and technology festival. The event was previously held in Asheville, North Carolina, where the late Robert Arthur “Bob” Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesizer and founding father of electronic music, spent the last 30 years of his life. The event is now held in Durham, North Carolina.

Past performers who have played at the festival include KraftwerkDevo and Brian Eno.

Hailed as “the most adventurous and cutting edge” festival of 2016, Moogfest returns with a commitment to futurist conversations and performances that wrestle with our historic moment, and reflect on the festival’s home in North Carolina.

In celebration of its 11th iteration, Moogfest will unveil its lineup over the next 11 weeks through their weekly “Future Thought Future Sound” e-mail newsletter, inviting the Moogfest community  to explore program themes like Transhumanism, Techno-shamanism and Protest.

For this year’s festival, one-time-only presentations are being developed by artists like: Wearable tech maven Nona Hendryx, Activist and Soundscape designer Moor Mother, Prolific Guitarist and Composer Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grammy-nominated ‘Stranger Things’ Composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of S U R V I V E, Experimental multi-instrumentalist The Haxan Cloak, Esteemed Producer Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, Notorious Noise Band Wolf Eyes Co-presented by Trip Metal Fest, Ambient Pioneer Laraaji Co-presented by Stones Throw/Leaving, Visible Cloaks and Syrinx Co-presented by RVNG Intl., and more.

The independent, annual, four-day festival will take place in Durham, North Carolina from May 18-21, 2017.
