Sonic Diversity Marks Moogfest 2012

Lineup for Moogfest 2012 Announced

The weekend before Halloween will be one of unprecedented musical exploration in Asheville, NC, as Moogfest 2012 will open the ears of thousands of sonic explorers in search of new musical experiences.

AC Entertainment has announced the lineup for the festival which celebrates Bob Moog’s pioneering legacy.  Featuring an array of music genres including synth pop, electronica, acid techno, indie pop, post rock, hip hop, psychedelic downtempo, rap and more, Moogfest 2012 offers a unique sampling of  the contemporary music scene. Ever the leader in aural adventure, AC Entertainment defies expectations by creating a convergence not at the predictable juncture of synthesis, but rather at Bob Moog’s expansive vision of creativity and innovation. One thing that binds these musical acts together is that none of them fit into one specific musical mold. This is a festival that celebrates individuality and the pushing of musical barriers.

    Diggin’ the lineup this year! I suppose my only thought in question is the typo I noticed…Die Antwoord…I’m not seeing them on the list, which is confusing to me because they are in the area at the perfect time to align with Moagfest!??

    Thanks,
