Our five-day coverage of Moogfest begins here

Moogfest has undergone an evolution since it last took place 2012. The then-three day electronic music festival changed partners, took a year off, and reemerged as a “Synthesis of Technology, Art & Music.”

Now spanning Wednesday-Sunday, April 23-27, and more than 20 locations throughout downtown Asheville, Moogfest has also expanded its coverage. This year, the focal point broadens to include technology. And not just in the pedals and synthesizers sense.

Xpress will be covering all aspects of the festival, from art and installations to economic talks and one planned protest; from yoga and pop-up shops to local showcases and big-name performers. Find our stories and photos here.

We’ll also be checking out your tweets and Instagrams. Use the hashtag #moogfest and we might pull your contributions into our amalgamated posts. We hope to see you around the festival.
