Pet Shop Boys come to Moogfest
MoogFest Rocks Asheville For fans of electronic music and there’s only one thing on their mind: MoogFest. Billed as “the synthesis of technology, art and music” MoogFest is a 5-Day fest dedicated to the synthesis of technology, art and music. With an experimental line up of daytime conference programming and landmark nightly performances, this is no ordinary music festival. But if it’s music you want, how about the Pet Shop Boys, Kraftwerk, M.I.A., Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, Flying Lotus, Q-tip, Laurie Anderson and literally dozens more. Impressed yet? Probably the most important festival of this type in the USA, it’s not to be missed. April 23-27. www.moogfest.com
