The 9th Annual Moogfest has announced it will be bringing in heavyweight indie labels: DFA, Ghostly International, Warp Records, Fool’s Gold, RVNG INTL, and Crew Love to curate label showcases at its April 23-27 festival in Asheville, North Carolina.

Last month, the festival organizers announced the daytime conference participants which include disco pioneer Giorgio Moroder, multimedia artist Laurie Anderson, film composer Cliff Martinez, and instrument pioneer Roger Linn.
Considering all the labels invited are Moog-inspired, many label heads admit participating in this year’s festival was a no-brainer.
New York-based producer, Blackedout releases his new single today entitled “Champagne” while preparing to drop his latest EP in early 2014.
