Moogfest, the annual electronic music festival and production showcase hosted in Asheville, NC, began last night and runs through Sunday night. Mainstream music fans have criticized this years’ festival for it’s niche lineup, but for hardcore fans and producers of electronic music it is going to be a paradise. Moog, the iconic music company that popularized the synthesizer, has gotten underground LA favorites like Flying Lotus, Lapalux, and Tokimonsta, classic producers and performers like CHIC, Nile Rodgers, and Giorgio Moroder, and huge EDM acts like Dillon Francis, M.I.A., and Riff Raff to make the long weekend and eclectic experience. Even Chaz Bundick, a Columbia native and the frontman for Toro Y Moi, is going to be performing his Les Sins side-project during the 4th night of the festival. During the day, many of the most innovative producers in the world will be hosting production workshops and giving lectures, and at night many of these same lecturers will be performing at venues all over Asheville. It is going to be a truly unique weekend, and WUSC is excited to send representatives to the festival to cover the events.
