When the lineup for this year’s Moogfest was revealed earlier this month, we were already impressed with what we were seeing. It already featured the likes of the Flaming Lips, Tangerine Dream (!), Toro y Moi, Battles, Little Dragon, Mayer Hawthorne…and it goes on like this. And now, the festival has added a slew of new acts to the bill that only makes Moogfest that much more necessary to attend.
Here’s a rundown of who has been added: Moby, who will be performing with a full band; Amon Tobin, who will perform ISAM live; Dan Deacon; Kode9; the Antlers; Atlas Sound; Glasser; Beak>; Stickmen (Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto); Lunzproject (Hans-Joachim Roedelius & Tim Story); and Wham City Comedy Tour.
I know, it’s a bit overwhelming, so here is the deal. The festival takes place Oct. 28-30 in Asheville, N.C. You can purchase weekend passes at the Moogfest website, where you can also find more information.
