|What is Moogfest?|
Moogfest is a yearly electronic music fest in Asheville, North Carolina. It is held in April over a 2-5 day period. The event celebrates Robert Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesizer. He is widely regarded as the founder of electronic music as a genre. Unlike open-air, single venue music festivals, this urban encounter is held in a number of smaller, intimate venues in and around Asheville's downtown area. Past artists have included Squarepusher, Liquid Swords, Cold Cave, and Orbital. The festivities range far beyond music performances. Film screenings, art exhibits, workshops, and Q&A sessions also draw visitors to the festival. Moogfest will not be held in 2015 but should return in 2016.
