Moogfest 2011 Lineup: Flaming Lips, James Murphy, STS9, TVOTR

Asheville, North Carolina’s festival ode to all things electronic music and Moog, Moogfest, just added some power to its already-solid lineup for 2011. Today, they threw a few new names into the mix, including TV on the Radio, Special Disco Version (featuring James Murphy and Pat Mahoney of DFA/LCD Soundsystem), St. Vincent, and Flying Lotus, among a bunch of others.

This fleshes out an already-stellar lineup of acts that cross the spectrum of electronic genres and styles, including three pioneers of electronic music: Tangerine Dream, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Suicide (who will perform their influential 1977 self-titled debut album in its entirety). Some other notable acts on the bill include: Battles, Crystal Castles, Chromeo, The Flaming Lips, Holy F*ck, M83, Passion Pit, Toro y Moi, and Umphrey’s McGee, just to name a few.

Moogfest 2011 takes place October 28-30 at various venues throughout Asheville. Tickets are on sale now. Full lineup after the jump…
