Moogfest, the annual festival celebrating the vision of sonic pioneer Bob Moog, happening October 28-30 in Asheville, NC, is drawing near! With just five weeks to go, we have a bunch of new Moogfest-related news to share. But first, lets remind you of the excellent lineup AC Entertainment has put together for attendees this year: The Flaming Lips, Moby, Passion Pit, STS9, Tangerine Dream, TV on the Radio, Special Disco Version featuring James Murphy and Pat Mahoney (DFA/LCD Soundsystem), Umphrey’s McGee, Chromeo, Crystal Castles, Amon Tobin: ISAM Live, Flying Lotus, Suicide (playing their legendary first album in its entirety), Ghostland Observatory, Childish Gambino, M83, Neon Indian, St. Vincent, Beak>, Matthew Dear, Tim Hecker, Anika, Toro Y Moi, Zomby, John Maus, CANT, and Oneohtrix Point Never, are just some of the many stellar acts gathering for this year’s event. And let’s not forget Brian Eno’s extraordinary video installation, 77 Million Paintings, will be exhibited for the first time in the United States outside of the West Coast. Eno will also present his mind-expanding “Illustrated Talk.” The day-by-day breakdown is below.
 
Also, Moogfest 2011 is expanding in a big way.  In addition to concerts at the Asheville Civic Center Arena, Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, and the Orange Peel, new venues for the weekend will include the newly renovated Asheville Music Hall (formerly Stella Blue), the beautiful and intimate Diana Wortham Theatre, and news of an outdoor venue will be announced soon.
 
Additionally, details surrounding the fine arts component of Moogfest are ready to be shared. SYNTH: A Group Art Show Inspired by Bob Moog, is a showcase of handmade limited-edition screen prints by some of the top concert poster artists and graphic designers working today. This year’s show will also feature a special limited edition print created by The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne. All proceeds from SYNTH go to support the Bob Moog Foundation. For more information and a list of confirmed artists, visit www.moogfest.com.
 
Of course, there is a ton more in store – information on this year’s workshops, interactive experiences and discussion panels will be announced in the coming weeks. Additionally, this year there will be surprise daytime performances and events all over town on Saturday and Sunday.
 
Single day tickets are now on sale, and weekend passes are still available at www.moogfest.com. Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings and Illustrated Talk are separately ticketed events, specially priced for Moogfest attendees. Visit www.moogfest.com for more information.
