Moog Music has just announced some more details of Moogfest 2018, with over 150 artists, performances, workshops, keynotes and masterclasses.
The full lineup & schedule for Moogfest 2018 (May 17 - 20) is available now. Ticket holders for this year’s festival will get to begin reserving their workshop spaces as early as this Friday.
The Engineer Pass is a special ticket that provides VIP access to the festival and the unique opportunity to work alongside Moog Music Engineers during a two-day synth-building workshop. This behind-the-scenes experience gives you the opportunity to engage Moog engineers while gaining insight into the art of electronic design. Moog says that, with the Engineer VIP Pass, you’re delving into synthesis at the foundational level—and you come away with your own limited-edition, unreleased Moog synthesizer, hand-built by you.
This year’s workshop will build the Sub-Harmonicon, (Front panel mock-up pictured above), a brand-new electronic instrument inspired by the Trautonium, the Rythmicon, and the Schillinger System.
