Posted by DCVB Staff on Apr 27, 2018 3:42:44 PM

Moogfest is about the feeling.

Not just the ‘good vibes,' music kind of feeling. We’re talking about the feeling – the tingling in your fingertips, rhythm through the pavement beneath you, can’t-stop-shaking-my-head-because-this-beat-is-so-good kind of feeling. There’s another sentiment that permeates the air when Moogfest comes to town – anticipation. It’s the eager expectation that what you’re about to see hasn’t been seen before. This gathering of innovative sights and sounds is actually a piece of history being synthesized right before your eyes… and you are in Durham for it.
