Moogfest: Yeah Yeah Yeahs Guitarist, 'Stranger Things' Band Lead Lineup

Written by  Daniel Kreps

Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Stranger Things composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of Survive and Nona Hendryx are among the artists that will flock to the 2017 Moogfest, taking place May 18th to 21st in Durham, North Carolina.

The Haxan Cloak, Wolf Eyes, ambient musician Laraaji and Simian Mobile Disco's Jas Shaw are also part of this year's lineup at the festival, which serves as an annual intersection of music, technology and art in the home state of electronic music pioneer Dr. Robert Moog.

Each day of the festival will feature "Future Thought" presentations, panels and installations, while the night brings the "Future Sound" segments of musical performances. Hendryx will perform with the aid of "wearable tech instruments," a collaboration between the one-time Labelle singer and students at the Berklee College of Music. Zinner and the Haxan Cloak will also perform together.

Laraaji has planned an eight-hour "Sleep Concert" where "participants will imagine their self in the present time of a sincere desire, dream vision being fulfilled. Gentle ambient celestial sounds and tones unfold over an eight-hour period with zither, and various instruments supporting rest and trance, in an extended yoga savasana. Participants awake with a 15-minute guided laughter meditation.
