Primus 3D, Orbital, and Miike Snow to Headline Moogfest

Some big names will be heading down to Asheville, NC this fall for the third annual Moogfest, including Miike Snow, GZA, and Santigold among others.  Via Press release:

AC Entertainment is proud to announce the line up for the third annual Moogfest, the festival of electronic and visionary music that celebrates the innovative spirit of Bob Moog. Taking place on Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27, 2012 in the city Bob Moog called home, Moogfest 2012 continues building on its exciting reinvention of the Moogfest concept and features its most distinctly invigorating lineup to date.

[...] Comprised of a diverse yet synergistic group of inspired performers, the 2012 Moogfest lineup includes Primus 3D, a stop on the first ever traveling 3D-enhanced live musical tour, Swedish electro-pop wonders Miike Snow, the electrifying Santigold as well as rare U.S. performances from some of electronic music's most forward thinking artists including: Orbital, Richie Hawtin, Squarepusher, Carl Craig and Pantha du Prince. Hip-hop is showcased by GZA, presenting his classic, Liquid Swords, El-P and Killer Mike. Notables also confirmed are: the legendary Thomas Dolby, Explosions In The Sky, Divine Fits, Four Tet, the Magnetic Fields, Prefuse 73 with Teebs as well as some of the hottest newcomers to electronic music such as Actress, Disclosure, Juila Holter and Blondes.

Past performers at Moogfest have included Passion Pit, MGMT, The Flaming List, Moby, M83, Childish Gambino, Jonsi, Brian Eno, and many others. Since moving from New York City in 2010 and working with AC Entertainment, they have expanded the festival and attracted bigger names.  Multiple venues in Asheville are utilized to carry out the festival, and all of it is done to honor and celebrate the spirit of Bob Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesizer and a pioneer in the world of electronic music.  His work paved the way for most of the artists selected to play, and this year's lineup should offer more innovation and excellence.  Check out the full list of bands and artists below:
