Moogfest 2010 adds DEVO, Bonobo, and more.

Moogfest is a three-day festival that takes place over Halloween weekend (10/29 – 10/31) in Asheville, NC. I’ve actually never really heard of this until just now, but from the looks of the line-up it sounds pretty excellent. They’ve just announced some new additions to the fest, including DEVO and Bonobo. Tickets went on sale today, so if you plan on being in the US around that time, or have been itching to go on an epic road trip, this might be your bet. From the press release:

“MoogFest 2010, the extraordinary three-day festival, celebrating the innovative vision of sonic pioneer, Robert Moog, will take place Halloween weekend, October 29-31, in Asheville, NC. As mentioned above, tickets for MoogFest 2010 go on sale today, Friday, August 13th at 12 Noon Eastern Time.  Weekend festival passes – along with tickets for each individual day – will be available.”
