Flying Lotus, M.I.A., Pet Shop Boys And Others To Join Moogfest 2014 Lineup

    This year’s Moogfest lineup looked pretty great already when it was announced back in December. Today, however, several big acts were added to the roster. Flying Lotus, M.I.A., Pet Shop Boys, YACHT, Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox will all be joining Giorgio Moroder, Kraftwerk, Chic and almost 100 other artists in Asheville, N.C. between April 23 and 27.  

    The festival will take place in multiple venues across the town, with both nightime and daytime activities planned. Zinner and Cox are both going to be involved in the latter, and are expected to “create immersive, improvisatory sound installations on Moog hardware and software,”  in collaboration with ex-Lightning Bolt drummer Hisham Bharoocha (providing the visuals).
