Four Tet, Dâm-Funk, Matmos, Caribou, Massive Attack, Bonobo, and More Play MoogFest
- Words: Patric Fallon
The year's festival based on music directly and indirectly inspired by the exploits of synthesizer innovator Robert Moog, MoogFest 2010, looks to be quite the jump-off; it's moved from New York City to Asheville, North Carolina (where the Moog company is based), it's spread over the course of three days, and it hosts some of the most well-known and well-regarded names in indie, hip-hop, and electronic music. Through October 29, 30, and 31, the likes of Massive Attack, RJD2, Caribou, Matmos (pictured above), Four Tet, Dan Deacon, Dâm-Funk, Emeralds, Hot Chip, School of Seven Bells, El-P, Panda Bear, Ikonika, and DJ Spooky will take to the stage in one of three venues, performing their own lovable, synth-centric tunes. The festival also offers panel discussions with some of the artists, workshops, and interactive experiences opening the possibility for the audience to explore its own musical creativity with all kinds of Moog instruments. Tickets for MoogFest 2010 start around $75 a day, and can be procured here.
