Moogfest is the synthesis of music, art and technology. Since 2004, it’s been a forum for the exchange of ideas by artists, futurists, inventors, entrepreneurs, and scientists. Thomas Dolby will be making three appearances at this year’s Moogfest festival, which includes both a live performance at Durham’s Carolina Theatre on April 27th as well as a two-way interview with 2018 Pulitzer Prize finalist Jason Leopold. This year’s lineup also includes Wolfgang Voigt performing as GAS, Kimbra, A Place To Bury Strangers, William Basinski, Matthew Dear, and more.
By day, Moogfest is a platform for conversation and experimentation, attracting creative and tech enthusiasts for four days of participatory programming in Durham, North Carolina. By night, Moogfest presents cutting-edge performances by early pioneers in electronic music, contemporary pop innovators, and avant-garde experimentalists in venues throughout the city.
Moogfest is a tribute to analog synthesizer pioneer Dr. Robert Moog and the profound influence his inventions have had on how we hear the world over the last 60 years. The exchange between engineer and musician that he fostered is celebrated with a unique festival format where the creative process is understood as collaboration among many people, across time and space, in commerce and culture.
