In partnership, Moogfest and Art of Cool (AOC) present a first-time-ever promotion celebrating Durham’s diverse history in music, art and technology. For a limited time from today until December 5 at 11:59pm ET, and while supplies last, a DURM Flex Pass is available for purchase. Priced at only $249, DURM Flex pass offers full festival access to fans interested in attending both AOC Fest 2017 and Moogfest 2017.

Shelly Green, President & CEO of the Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau comments on the upcoming partnership of events, “We are so excited that Durham, North Carolina will once again be hosting both the Art of Cool Festival and Moogfest in 2017. They are both great events, but combined, Durham will host the best 30 days of music and tech in the country. Offering a DURM Flex Pass seems like a win-win so people can have unprecedented access to performances, talks and interactive experiences with the best musicians and minds in the world.”

Moogfest, a three day tribute to Dr. Robert Moog and the profound influence his inventions have had on how we hear the world is a celebration of the synthesis of music, art, and technology. Since 2004, it has brought together artists, futurist thinkers, inventors, entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, scientists, and musicians in a unique festival format where the creative process is understood as a collaboration across time and space, in commerce and culture.

In 2016 Moogfest moved to its new home in Durham NC, and returns on May 18-21, 2017. Moogfest is excited to announce its partnership with Art of Cool, which since 2011 has been presenting live jazz and educating the local community about jazz in Durham. AOC provides a remixed experience of the Black American Music Festival. The three-day AOC Festival features forward thinking jazz, alternative soul and mature hip hop in its mission to expand the audience of jazz as well as innovative thought.
