impressive Moogfest 2014 lineup includes Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, Laurie Anderson, CHIC

Moogfest has been through some changes over the years, but it sure looks like the festival has found firm footing for 2014. Scheduled for April 23-27, 2014, at venues across Asheville, N.C., Moogfest is named in honor of Bob Moog and is billed as a “synthesis of technology, art, and music.”

Among the headliners released a few days ago are Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, CHIC (featuring Nile Rodgers), and Laurie Anderson. (Anderson will also be in the Southeast in 2014 for Spoleto in Charleston.)

Tickets are now on sale. In addition to the great lineup of nighttime performances and label showcases, dozens of daytime speakers have also been scheduled. Both Laurie Anderson and Giorgio Moroder will be speaking in addition to performing.

Dan Deacon is among the performers; here’s one shot I took of him in late 2012 during a show at Dollhouse Productions here in Savannah:
