Moogfest starts this Thursday, May 19, kicking off a super-exciting lineup of speakers, workshops, interactive events, and a long weekend of stellar bands. We’ll be there participating in several talks, panels, and workshops, so check out our schedule below and come say hello.
Centered around the old Lucky Strike campus in Durham, NC, Moogfest is a hybrid event meant to celebrate the legacy of legendary synth luminary Bob Moog.
The nighttime headliners include the likes of Odesza, Grimes, and Miike Snow. Some of our other favorites include Reggie Watts, Gary Numan, Laurie Anderson, Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange), Actress, Bob Moses, Daniel Lanoi, Dawn of MIDI, Son Lux, YACHT (the list goes way on).
The daytimes are packed with thought leaders in the realm of music tech, VR, futurism, and (of course) synthesizers. Part of the fun is that the world doesn’t really know what to make of Moogfest, but is definitely paying attention. Forbes ran some nice preview coverage of the festival (and Artiphon) here.
