One of the most exciting new festivals of last year was Asheville, NC's Moogfest, a 3-day celebration of the spirit of legendary synthesizer pioneer Bob Moog. Last years festival brought acts such as Panda Bear, Girl Talk, and MGMT to a handful of Asheville's venues. Today, Moogfest has announced the initial lineup for their 2011 festival, and it's quite impressive: the Flaming Lips, Passion Pit, and Tangerine Dream gill the three headlining slots while the undercard includes other acts that owe a debt to Moog's innovations such as Chromeo, Crystal Castles, and influential electro-punk-rockers Suicide, performing their groundbreaking 1977 eponymous debut in its entirety. The festival takes place October 28-30, 2011 and ticket prices range from $149.50 to $379.50 and will be on sale starting Saturday, June 4th.
