Moogfest 2012 is proud to announce some new additions to this year’s line-up, featuring rap titan Nas, one of the genre’s most influential MCs and who will be performing with a full, Moog-ed out, nine-piece band. In addition Moogfest welcomes back Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin, who both performed solo last year, but will be teaming up as a duo this year. Also joining the lineup are Asheville’s own garage proggers Ahleuchatistas and New York duo Buke & Gase, who, in true Moog fashion, build their own instruments, speakers and pedals.

One of the most exciting and apropos additions to the lineup is Morton Subotnick. Like Bob Moog, Subotnick is a true innovator of electronic music and his Silver Apples of the Moon (1967) is one of the most influential pieces of electronic music and has inspired a generation of composers, performers, and music theorists. Subotnick will present From Silver Apples to a Sky of Cloudless Sulfur, a performance that will include the aforementioned legendary piece and will be accompanied by video created by Berlin-based media artist Lillevan.

The third annual Moogfest, the festival of electronic and visionary music that celebrates the innovative spirit of Bob Moog, is taking place Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 in beautiful Asheville, NC, the city Bob Moog called home.

What people are saying about Moogfest:

“a perfect little weekend.” – NPR’s All Songs Considered

“If it sounds like a sort of Star Trek convention for synthesizer geeks (they “air knob” invisible electronic equipment instead of pretend-Stratocasters), in a way it is. But that’s precisely why Moogfest, after just two years, looks likely to become an annual fixture for Asheville – and a model for other towns and cities.”
— Reuters

“Moogfest 2011 will forever hold a sacred place in our hearts and memories, and it’s more than a safe bet that we’ll be game for (at least) one more magical round of synth-laden splendor before this world finally calls it quits.” — FILTER

“Moogfest came to a close Sunday with fans and business owners radiating warmth for the electronic music festival and its embrace of the city.”
— Asheville Citizen-Times
