Festie News: Moogfest and Gathering of the Vibes Lineups!

June 1 saw many big concert announcements. The Langerado Music Festival initial lineup was announced, the Bear Creek lineup additions were announced, and now I find Asheville, North Carolina’s Moogfest initial lineup was released as well.

STS9

Moogfest, held in honor of Bob Moog, inventor of the Moog synthesizer, is a largely electronic-oriented festival, but it also features a handful of live crossover bands as well.

This year’s Moogfest, to be held from October 28-30, will feature a slew of fantastic acts including STS9, Umphrey’s McGee, Ghostland Observatory, The Flaming Lips, Passion Pit, Tangerine Dream and Crystal Castles.

Also now available are lineups for a pop/ garbage rock saturated Summerfest (though there are a few diamonds sprinkled among the coals) and a truly amazing-looking Gathering of the Vibes.

Vibes this year is featuring, among others, Furthur, Elvis Costello and the Imposters, John Butler Trio, Tedeschi Trucks Band and Dumpstaphunk.

About clazaga5

I am a music writer. I graduated from FIU's School of Journalism and Mass Communications in April, 2011. I've always had a passion for music. Since high school, I've been involved in a few bands and written a good number of original songs. I loved going to shows and seeing live music. So when the notion struck me to combine the two, it seemed only logical that I write about live music when and wherever I find it. This blog is what came of that notion.
