A few days before this Halloween – October 28-30, 2011 – headliners like the Flaming Lips and Passion Pit will join over 60 other artists for Moogfest 2011 in scenic Asheville, North Carolina. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday, June 4th.

The festival will again take place in Asheville, NC (as it did last year) – and will feature more than 60 artists at a handful of venues throughout downtown Asheville, such as the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, the Orange Peel Social & Pleasure Club, and Ashville’s Civic Center Arena.  Moogfest is an annual event held in honor of electronic music pioneer Robert Moog, who spent his later years in Asheville.
