Moogfest 2020, a tech conference & music festival originally planned for April 16-19, 2020 in Durnham, NC, has been canceled for logistical reasons.
These are sad news that reaches us today from Moog Music. The annual electronic music event, which is organized by Moog Music, was canceled for 2020 and put on hold.
Although many of you could not visit this beautiful event in the US for a variety of reasons, it was also known for its workshops where new Moog Synthesizers have been introduced in a limited edition in recent years like the Spectravox in 2019 or Subharmonicon in 2018. I hope this is just a one-time cancellation and that it will come back in the future. Let see.
As an organization, our purpose is to create deeply meaningful experiences and relationships in order to continually enrich our creative community. This intermission will be used to focus on the future of Moogfest and to investigate new ways of exploring the future of music, art, and technology.
Since its inception in 2004, the multi-day interactive tech conference and music festival has drawn both musical pioneers and futurist thinkers as Keynote guests in the science and art fields from around the world. Renowned electronic musicians such as Devo, Laurie Anderson, Gary Numan, Kraftwerk, Suzanne Ciani, Keith Emerson, Brian Eno, and Giorgio Moroder are among the festival’s past performers. We will continue to support emerging artists, celebrate the musicians who helped shape electronic music as we hear it today, and work diligently to design an event that honors the spirit of Bob Moog and the Moogfest community.
To all attendees, artists, sponsors, presenters, and volunteers: thank you for your support, understanding, and patience as the Moogfest experience continues to evolve.
