MoogFest 2010, a three-day festival celebrating the vision of sonic pioneer, Robert Moog, to be held in Asheville, NC, October 29-31, have announced that Big Boi, Jonsi, and Caribou will be among the acts joining Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, and MGMT on the bill for the weekend festival.
Numerous concerts, featuring over two dozen internationally acclaimed artists – along with workshops, talks, installations, exhibitions and interactive experiences - are planned in multiple venues throughout downtown Asheville, including the Asheville Civic Center Arena, the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, and Asheville's renowned world-class club, the Orange Peel.
"MoogFest 2010 is going to be an extraordinary experience," says event organizer Ashley Capps. "We've had a tremendous response already – and from that, some unique opportunities have emerged. We still need a little more time to put it all together, so we thought it best to wait so that we can share with everyone the full scope of the event before actually putting tickets on sale. It's worth the wait. It really is going to be a special weekend."
