After a period of radio silence, and some pointed nudging by this very publication, Moogfest has announced the “first wave” of performers for the April 25-28th festival happening in Durham. Two months out, Moogfest has yet to announce specifics of venues, workshops, and the full schedule and lineup but, presumably, those nitty gritty details are to come. 

For the 15th iteration of Moogfest, psychedelic space-rockers A Place To Bury Strangers and IDM artist Richard Devine will each play 4-hour sets, while ambient stalwart Tim Hecker is back to perform with the Konoyo Ensemble. U.S. Girls return to the Triangle after their 2018 performance at Hopscotch, still on the heels of 2018’s avant jazz pop hybrid “In A Poem Unlimited.”

Martin Gore of Depeche Mode will be part of a “creative exchange” conversation, and concertgoers can bring a pillow and blanket for William Basinski “sleep concert” in the overnight hours. Other headliners include Matthew Dear, GAS, Suzi Analogue, Mez, The Field, and Kimbra.

You can peep headliners and a full announcement here and purchase tickets at the link.
