Moogfest 2014 Lineup
The Moogfest format bears some similarities to Austin’s SXSW, only it’s exclusively tailored to the best acts that electronica has to offer. The festival includes showcases curated by some prominent electronic labels like Warp Records, DFA, and Fools Gold. Another cool feature is the inclusion of keynote speakers, like Giorgio Moroder (who owes Daft Punk a beer or two) and Laurie Anderson.
