AC Entertainment – creator and producer of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Big Ears Festival, and Vegoose – has announced MoogFest 2010, a three-day festival celebrating the innovative vision of sonic pioneer, Robert Moog, to be held Halloween weekend, October 29-31, in Asheville, NC, the adopted home of Bob Moog. Confirmed artists Massive Attack, MGMT and Thievery Corporation will be joined by over 25 additional internationally renowned artists performing in multiple venues throughout downtown Asheville, including the Asheville Civic Center Arena, the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, and the Orange Peel.

In addition to the festival's musical offerings, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops, engage with artists in panel discussions, enjoy visual art exhibitions, installations and film screenings, and explore their own musical creativity with a variety of Moog instruments.

The complete schedule of artists and events for MoogFest 2010 will be announced on July 27th and tickets will go on sale July 30th.

"Bob Moog changed the course of music as we know it," says AC Entertainment's founder Ashley Capps. "He put new worlds of sound literally at the fingertips of musicians, unleashing a creative revolution. We're thrilled and honored to be able to celebrate his extraordinary legacy in the place that he called home and we hope to do so for many years to come."

Asheville is the headquarters of Moog Music, the company Bob Moog formed in 1963. Moog's push for continual innovation permeates the company's culture to this day. In 2008, they produced the groundbreaking Moog Guitar and more projects are currently in development. 2010 marks a landmark in the company's history as the 40th anniversary of the Voyager, one of the most popular of the Moog synthesizers, which will certainly be a focus of the MoogFest weekend.
