Some of the daytime panels and conversations sound amazing! A few that jumped out at me...
A Talk with The Electric Lady: The ArchAndroid herself, Janelle Monae, takes us on journey through her sci-fi universe, filled with psychedelic soul music and a dystopian futurism, along with her fellow voyagers Nate Rocket Wonder and Chuck Lightning. Phyre Fest do you know if she is definitely performing as well?
The Math and Science of The Simpsons and Futurama: Simon Singh, author of The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets, leads the creator of Futurama David X. Cohen, plus Futurama/The Simpsons writers Stewart Burns, Jeff Westbrook and Ken Keeler (who happens to have a PhD in applied math from Harvard and holds a master's degree in electrical engineering from Stanford), through the mysterious math and science riddles weaved into to countless episodes of two of the greatest TV shows ever, with screenings of key scenes.
Google and the Future of Audio: Come hear firsthand accounts of Google's foray into the intersection of music and technology from members of the Android, Creative Lab, Data Arts, and Doodle teams. Witness and engage in a dialogue about the challenges, triumphs, adventures, and aspirations of mixing sounds and code. With Ryan Germick, Leon Hong, Joey Hurst, Aaron Koblin, Raph Levien, and Alexander Chen.
Dance, Dance, Dance to Let's Dance: A Masterclass by Nile Rodgers: For the first time ever, one of music's greatest producers will reveal the intimate details behind all of his biggest recordings. We'll listen to a selection of his classics from beginning to end, and after each Nile Rodgers will tell us the stories behind each one, from inspiration to songwriting to collaboration to recording, pulling back the curtain on what goes into making timeless hits with David Bowie, Daft Punk, Diana Ross, Madonna, Chic and more
Also, I'm pretty pissed that I bought the full price tix before these deals started popping up

$100 is ridiculously good but I know I couldn't do all 5 days. I wish they'd post the dailies so I could strategize a 2 day visit with Kraftwerk Thursday and some other cool bands/headliner either Wednesday or Friday. I'm just worried all the other acts I'm interested will wind up playing on the weekend instead.

I couldn't pass up on a 5 day fest for $99...I figured I could at least make it down a couple of nights to hopefully see Flylo, Nile Rodgers, or Q-tip. But I think I'm the only one of my friends that bought a ticket

"Moogfest will take place at over 10 venues located in the heart of Asheville, including Thomas Wolfe, US Cellular Center Basement, The Orange Peel, Asheville Community Theatre, The Mill Room, Diana Wortham Theatre, Fine Arts Theater, Masonic Temple, Asheville Music Hall, Asheville Art Museum, New Earth, Broadway Outdoor, Emerald Lounge, and The Moog Store."
So many places, this sure is an ambitious endeavor. Too ambitious probably.
