Moogfest begins in just a few short hours; here's what you have to look forward to.
Named after America's main pioneer in the world of electronic music, Robert Moog, Moogfest is finally back after a brief sabbatical which saw them miss 2013 - to much disappointment from electronic lovers everywhere.
The much-adored Moog synthesizer is an incredible piece of equipment invented by a man who changed music for the better, so the fact that there's a weekend event named sharing the name is a thrilling prospect for musicians and fans alike. It began in 2004 and was eventually brought to Asheville, North Carolina in 2008 where it has stayed ever since. Not only have festival goers got a first-class music line-up to look forward to, Moogfest 2014 will also be hosting presentations during the day from both veteran music boffins to newcomers still experimenting with developing their sound. For all you synth-lovers out there, you will also be treated to various workshops which will no doubt give you an immersive experience into the heart of electronic music.
Take a break from skiing to catch some spectacular sounds from South Lake Tahoe's SnowGlobe Music Festival.
This summer may have been a great season for festivals everywhere, but SnowGlobe Music Festival 2013 proves that you don't need warm weather to have a sensational musical experience.
The beautiful city of South Lake Tahoe, California presents another end of year celebration from December 29th - 31st complete with its famous clear blue lake and snow-capped mountains as the back drop to one of the last musical events of 2013. Recently confirmed as headliners are Dutch electronic artist Tiesto and Chicago DJ Kaskade as well as hip hop legend Snoop Dogg who is currently performing under the name Snoop Lion as he embarks on a more reggae based music career. Moombahcore pioneer Dillon Francis will also make an appearance at the event, ahead of the release of his debut studio album, as well as Canadian duo Zeds Dead and Atlanta producer Treasure Fingers. There's more to come, however, as a new headliner will be unveiled on November 3rd 2013.
