Moogfest Converges Music, Art and Technology

Moogfest May 2017

Moogfest, the synthesis of music, art and technology, has unveiled the full schedule for the expansive four-day festival. Happening from 18-21 May, the event explores the future of technology, art, and music, the festival which will include more than 300 musical performances, daytime workshops, conversations, masterclasses, film screenings, live scores, durational sound installations, and interactive art experiences.

Alongside Masterclasses with Moogfest Artists & Makers, the event has come up with categorised themes to specially attract specific fans covering topics including Hacking Systems, Black Quantum Futurism, Spatial Sound, Instrument Design, Techno-Shamanism, Protest, The Joyful Noise of STEAM, and The Future of Creativity.

Moogfest celebrates the legacy of Bob Moog, a visionary engineer who pioneered the analog synthesizer and other technology tools used by artists like Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, and Kraftwerk. This year’s program will feature over 260 innovators in music, art, and technology — from Flying Lotus , Animal Collective , Suzanne Ciani , Gotye and Princess Nokia to Dr. Kate Shaw, an experimental particle physicist working on the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider , and Joe Davis, a pioneer in creating art with genes and bacteria at MIT Media Lab . Moogfest takes place in Durham, North Carolina, a fast-growing capital of technology, culture and entrepreneurship. The full list of programmes can be found here.

 

Hundreds of artists, speakers, and sessions will be held across downtown Durham, Workshops are an essential part of the Moogfest programme, as the platform prioritises intimate spaces for collaboration and creativity.

There is still time to get prioritised access to our vast array of unique workshops. To ensure that you get your seat, consider the Moogfest Engineering pass where you can build a festival-exclusive synthesizer with a Moog Music engineer, or a VIP Pass that grants you access to all of the activities of Moogfest and select VIP areas.

Moogfest is the synthesis of music, art and technology. Since 2004, Moogfest has brought together artists, futurist thinkers, inventors, entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, scientists and musicians. By day, Moogfest is a platform for conversation and experimentation. By night, Moogfest presents cutting-edge music in venues throughout the city.
