Kraftwerk, Chic Lead Eclectic Moogfest 2014 Lineup
Asheville’s expanded Moogfest will make its spring debut April 23-27, and pioneers Kraftwerk and Chic have been announced as headliners in the newly revealed Phase 2 lineup. Both acts will join previously announced headliners Giorgio Moroder and Laurie Anderson as part of the festival’s nighttime entertainment. The lineup is a eclectic mix of acts, from dance stalwarts like Sasha to underground rapper Le1f. Even a few America’s Best DJ 2013 nominees have joined the fold, with Green Velvet, Mark Farina, Soul Clap, and TOKiMONSTA all scheduled to perform. Over 70 acts are still to be announced.
Additionally, the organizers of the festival have just announced the record labels and tastemakers that will curate special music showcases throughout the week. Both Fool’s Gold Records and DFA Records will contribute their own curated showcases, as will Warp Records and AFROPUNK. Label No.19 will bring its celebrated Social Experiment party—seen at Sonar Festival, BPM Festival, and Fabric, London—to the festival, while Crew Love’s Wolf + Lamb and Soul Clap will host their own showcase. Other music festivals will contribute, as well, with Raleigh’s Hopscotch Festival and Detroit’s Movement Electronic Music Festival showcasing their own parties.
