Halloween weekend in Ashville, NC, it’s MoogFest!

Moogfest – the annual event honoring the remarkable vision of Robert Moog and his amazing musical inventions that changed the course of music – is reinventing itself. This year, moogfest 2010 will move from New York City to Asheville, NC – the place Bob Moog called home for the last 30 years of his life – and will expand to a 3-day, multi-venue event during the weekend of October 29 -31, 2010. During the festival, moogfest 2010 will host artists and audiences from throughout the world in different venues throughout Asheville’s beautiful, historic downtown.

The lineup is crazy with everybody you know like DEVO, Massive Attack, and Shpongle.

    Too bad MoogFest doesn’t have Kraftwerk, Jean-Jacques Perrey, Gershon Kingsley and Wendy Carlos in the lineup. Then again they’re all in their 70s and 80s so maybe they can’t perform anymore.
