Moogfest has emerged as the opposite of typical electronic-music festivals. It largely ignores so-called “big room” dance music in favor of sounds that stretch boundaries and explore sonic phenomena. Four-hour “durational” performances and an eight-hour, overnight “sleep concert” favored drones and meditative music. Moogfest also, in the state that passed and then repealed a divisive law on bathroom use, made a point of featuring performers and speakers who are gay, female, transgender or nonbinary — including a keynote stage interview with Chelsea Manning of WikiLeaks fame.
