Moogfest Rolls Out Additions to 2011 Lineup

Dan Deacon, one of many new artists added to the Moogfest lineup
A mere three weeks after announcing an already strong initial lineup including the likes of the Flaming Lips and Crystal Castles, a Youtube video posted today announced further acts whose presence will grace Asheville, NC this October for this year's Moogfest. The new acts include ambient music pioneer Moby, the Antlers, and the perpetually entertaining Dan Deacon, among others. Also announced was a performance by Baltimore's Wham City Comedy Collective, a live variety show of sorts combining comedy, bizarre costumes, avant-garde performance art, and musical performance (in which Deacon is prominently featured). Other exciting add-ons include Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox performing under his solo Moniker, Atlas Sound, and powerhouse dubstep producer kode9. The official website for the festival promises that the "final Moogfest 2011 lineup will ultimately feature performances by over 60 internationally acclaimed artists," with the current lineup sitting at an even forty after today's rollout, so it's safe to say we can expect another major announcement in the near future. In the meantime, you can check out the Moogfest website at for tickets, a lineup with artist bios, and general festival info, and you can see today's announcement video after the break.
