Moogfest is a tribute to Dr. Robert Moog and how his inventions have profoundly influenced how we hear the world. Over the past sixty years, Bob Moog and Moog Music have pioneered the analog synthesizer and other technology tools for artists. The relationship between engineer and musician is celebrated in this unique festival format. Moogfest’s mission is to grow a global community of futurists who explore emerging sound technologies and design radical instruments for change. 
Moogfest is a landmark cultural event taking place in North Carolina’s “Research Triangle.”  The Triangle is known for inventing technology and leading discoveries and is anchored by North Carolina State University (Raleigh), Duke University (Durham), and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 
The Raleigh-Durham Internation Airport (RDU) offers direct flights from major cities across the United States and Europe.  RDU is a short twenty-minute drive from Downtown Durham. Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of Downtown Durham.  
Durham, North Carolina is one of the fastest growing and most exciting cities in the country.  Known as the Bull City, Durham is built on a unique blend of diversity, authenticity, world class innovation, and culture.  Our city has reinvented itself from tobacco to technology.  It is one of the only cities in the United States to boast $1 billion in tech exits and a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem.  
Home to Merge Records and the Marsalis Family, Durham’s music scene continues to change and grow as new venues continue to open alongside existing theatres, clubs, restaurants, galleries, and unconventional performance spaces.  Morehead Manor Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance of our area’s most popular entertainment venue: the Durham Performing Arts Center.  We look forward to hosting guests of the Durham Moogfest.
