Moogfest changes name to unpronounceable symbol
Knoxville's AC Entertainment announced yesterday that the music festival known as Moogfest for the past three years will be changing its name to an unpronounceable symbol. The cryptic rune will incorporate elements of a mountain, musical note, electricity and an unkempt beard. AC Entertainment explained in a press release the Asheville festival's desire to combine cutting-edge electronic music with a pretentious, unutterable moniker. "Like Prince (or whatever he's calling himself these days) before it, The Festival Formerly Known as Moogfest continues to defy convention, enunciation and the singularity of gender. It's all about thinking in new ways, tuning in 2 a new free-quency." Past performers of the two-day festival have included TV on the Radio, Girl Talk, The Antlers, Thievery Corporation and a 1986-model Speak & Spell.
