Moogfest announces local acts

The latest rollout of bands slated to perform at Moogfest this April includes a dozen local acts. They’re mixed in with the 80-plus national and international acts who will perform in the evenings during the festival. And that’s cool, because we think our local artists should be featured alongside the likes of M.I.A., Nile Rodgers and YACHT.

But they also deserve a spotlight. So, if you’re heading to Moogfest during its April 23-27 run, be sure to check out DJs Brett Rock, Earthtone Soundsystem, In Plain Sight and Kri & Amos Gaynes; electronic duos Razor & Blade, BomBassic and Two Fresh (pictured below), indie-electro-soul outfit RBTS WIN, electro-pop projects The Jellyrox and The Volt Per Octaves and experimental groups Hello Hugo and Tin Foil Hat.

And here’s our local Moogfest mix tape, Vol. 1:
