The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Nick Zinner and Deerhunter's Bradford Cox, composer Dan Deacon, and "Futurama" creator and "The Simpsons" writer David X.

Moogfest moves to April 23-27 this year. The massive lineup of speakers and performers includes RJD2, Tiga, Blondes, Art Department, Publicist, Ejecta, ADULT., YACHT, and many others.

Dubbed the Synthesis of Technology, Art & Music, Moogfest is as much a conference on the future of technology and how it relates to music as it is a live music festival. The list of featured speakers is here. Over 60 talks will take place at eight venues throughout the five days. The live music takes place across 10 Asheville venues.
