Moogfest 2012 has announced some new additions to this year’s line-up, featuring experimental rap outfit Death Grips, one of 2012’s most exciting and brazen acts. In addition Moogfest welcomes Andy Stott, a much lauded UK dub techno DJ/producer, whose two 2011 albums Passed Me By and We Stay Together were high water marks for the genre.
Also joining the lineup is acclaimed composer and pianist Harold Budd. Budd is a deeply influential artist working at the forefront of ambient and drone music. Throughout his 50+-year career, he’s collaborated with the likes of Brian Eno, the Cocteau Twins and Robin Guthrie. For Moogfest, Budd will perform with bassist Keith Lowe, who was worked with David Sylvain, Fiona Apple, BRAD (featuring Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard) and of course, Harold Budd. The two will be performing a set entitled “These Old Love Songs,” a selection of works from Budd’s extensive discography.
The third annual Moogfest, the festival of electronic and visionary music that celebrates the innovative spirit of Bob Moog, is taking place Friday, October 26 and Saturday, October 27 in beautiful Asheville, NC, the city Bob Moog called home.
