Moogfest 2011, Celebrating the Musical Legacy of Robert Moog


Moogfest is an annual celebration of visionary inventor Robert Moog and his contributions to the music world, in particular, the Moog synthesizer. Featured performers and artists include Brian Eno, who will be presenting his 77 Million Paintings visual music exhibit, Flaming Lips, Moby, Passion Pit and many more.

Moogfest celebrates Bob Moog’s legacy as a sonic pioneer, which will be the thread that unites the festival’s rich array of musical offerings. While the wide range of Moog instruments – the Minimoog Voyager, the Little Phatty, the Etherwave Theremin, Moogerfoogers, and the Moog Guitar – will play prominent roles throughout the festival’s events, the artists performing will certainly not be limited to those who create their work on Moog instruments. Instead, artists will be chosen for their role in creating unique and groundbreaking musical experiences that embody the essence of Bob Moog’s visionary and creative spirit.

Moogfest 2011 is a 3-day event held in Asheville, North Carolina on October 28-30, 2011. Tickets are available now.
