ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) – An annual festival celebrating a music
pioneer who made Asheville his adopted hometown is drawing big
names for its second year.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports that electronic music
pioneer Brian Eno will present an art installation
and deliver a lecture at Moogfest (mowg-fest) in October.

Eno is a founding member of Roxy Music and is also famous for
producing albums by groups like U2 and Coldplay.

The festival celebrates Robert Moog, creator of a synthesizer
that revolutionized music. Moog lived in Asheville from 1978 until
his death in 2005. His company remains in the city and recently
moved to renovated buildings downtown.

Other names announced for the festival include the Flaming Lips
and Moby.
