The annual music festival Moogfest took place this Halloween weekend down in Asheville, North Carolina. Countless bands we know and love played over the course of its three days including The Antlers, Atlas Sound, Austra, Anika, The Field, AraabMuzik, Flying Lotus, Chromeo, TV on the Radio, Moby, Matthew Dear, Tangerine Dream, and many more. And that was just Friday. Friday pictures are in this post.

As NPR points out:

"Tangerine Dream has wore many hats during a prolific 35-year career: Krautrock, New Age, film scores and pioneering synth music, to start. The group has consistently worked at a steady clip, generating 116 (!) live and studio albums in spite of its many personnel changes. Edgar Froese, the creative force behind Tangerine Dream, is the only remaining original member."
Tangerine Dream played a two hour set at the fest. You can listen to the whole thing at NPR who have streaming sets from Austra, Atlas Sound, Tim Hecker, The Field, CANT and others too. The rest of our pictures from the first of three days, below...

Moogfest has some pretty interesting synth related seminars and a lecture from Brian Eno too. Great for synth/music nerds....

The festival is a unique opportunity for those who want to wear the most unique outfits, given that everyone is guided by a sense of freedom of expression.

I really like at this event Moogfest that fact that is one of those festivals dedicated to the synthesis of technology, art and music.
