Moogfest celebrates the legacy of Bob Moog, a visionary engineer who pioneered the analog synthesizer and other technology tools used by artists like Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and Kraftwerk. This year’s festival will feature more than 300 innovators in music, art, and technology -- from Gary Numan (3 night residency), GZA (2 night residency), Grimes and Laurie Anderson, to virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier and robot and transhumanist visionary Dr. Martine Rothblatt. For the first time, it will take place in Durham, North Carolina, a fast-growing capital of technology, culture and entrepreneurship.
The four-day festival unfolds in venues throughout downtown Durham in spaces that range from intimate galleries to grand theatres. Special care has been taken to pair nighttime performances with venues that have unique acoustics and style. Interactive art and sound installations are scattered throughout the city.
