Moogfest 2016 has unveiled the full schedule for the expansive four-day festival.
Exploring the future of technology, art, and music, the festival includes more than 300 musical performances, daytime workshops, conversations, masterclasses, film screenings, live scores, durational sound installations, and multiple interactive art experiences.
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 250 innovators in music, art, and technology — from Gary Numan (3 nights), GZA (2 nights), Grimes and Laurie Anderson, to virtual reality pioneer Jaron Lanier and transhumanist visionary Dr. Martine Rothblatt. For the first time, Moogfest takes place in Durham, North Carolina, a fast-growing capital of technology, culture and entrepreneurship.
From Thursday, May 19 – Sunday, May 22, Moogfest unfolds in venues throughout downtown Durham in spaces that range from intimate galleries to grand theaters. Special care has been taken to pair nighttime performances with spaces that have unique acoustics and style. Art Installations are site-specific and scattered throughout the city.
Tickets for Moogfest 2016 are available for $249 USD (Festival Pass) and $499 USD (VIP Pass).
A limited number of Single Day Passes will go on sale Friday, April 15th starting at 12pm EST. Passes for Thursday, Friday or Saturday are $129 USD; passes for Sunday are $69 USD.
