|As promised, the Moogfest 2012 lineup was released today, with great music like the Primus 3D experience, Orbital, Richie Hawtin, Four Tet, Divine Fits, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Prefuse 73, Exitmusic and more in this year's show. It's a decidedly more electronic music-based lineup than some previous years, where the lineup focused on indie rock and more organic-sound type of bands. I guess Moogfest organizers have gotten rid if their guitars and bought turntables instead. Check out a complete Moogfest 2012 lineup in the Spacelab Festival Guide.

Moogfest honors Bob Moog, the creator of the Moog synthesizer, so there’s lots of Moog use at the festival. The entire Moogfest thing centers around artists that create “unique and groundbreaking musical experiences that embody the essence of Bob Moog’s visionary and creative spirit.”
