The 9th Annual Moogfest has announced it will be bringing in heavyweight indie labels: DFA, Ghostly International, Warp Records, Fool’s Gold, RVNG INTL, and Crew Love to curate label showcases at its April 23-27 festival in Asheville, North Carolina.
The Moog synthesizer has been a pioneering musical instrument prevalent in the electronic music genre for years. For the first time this year, Moog Inc. will be promoting their own festival in order to follow through in their vision to the last T.
Last month, the festival organizers announced the daytime conference participants which include disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder, multimedia artist Laurie Anderson, film composer Cliff Martinez, and instrument pioneer Roger Linn.
Considering all the labels invited are Moog-inspired, many label heads admit participating in this year’s festival was a no-brainer.
