Moogfest, one of the country’s preeminent electronic-focused music festivals, moved from Asheville, N.C., to Durham, N.C., this year and now the lineup for the new host city has been announced.
This year the festival runs from May 18-21 (the closest weekend to Robert Moog’s birthday), and will feature performances by Flying Lotus, Animal Collective, Gotye, S U R V I V E, KING, Nick Zinner, The Haxan Cloak, Dave Harrington, Wolf Eyes, Pharmakon, Simian Mobile Disco, Jessy Lanza, Moor Mother, Derrick May and 808 State.
Gotye will be leading a tribute to French ambient pioneer Jean Jacques Perrey, who died in 2016. S U R V I V E members Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein are slated to perform their score for the sci-fi Netflix hit Stranger Things. And Dave Harrington (formerly of Darkside) is going to premiere a live score for the landmark 1922 Swedish horror film Häxan.
