Moogfest is 51 days away.

With that in mind, we’re dedicating today’s news transmission to in-the-know details to help with your festival planning. From details on the exclusive Eurorack compatible synthesizer being built by this year’s Engineer Pass holders, to hotels at a discounted rate, to volunteer opportunities—this transmission is your key to unlocking the essential Moogfest experience.

Don’t miss out: The Circuit Bending Challenge deadline is this Monday the 3rd. Hackers, DIY’ers, and tinkerers, take note.

The Moogfest 2017 Engineering Pass is the ultimate way to experience the festival. It provides unique access to work alongside Moog Music engineers in the creation of an exclusive, unreleased, semi-modular, analog percussion synthesizer aka the Drummer from Another Mother (DFAM). The DFAM voicing is designed to craft highly dynamic percussive sounds, synthesize evolving patterns, and will allow for deep timbral manipulations.

This workshop takes place over (2x) 4-hour sessions (total of 8 hours) and is for those with a passion for building, DIY, synthesis, and the art therein.

Not only does it grant you exclusive access to a premium workshop, it opens all doors to other Moogfest 2017 activities.

This means: 

  • VIP Access to all events and exclusive areas.
  • Complimentary food and beverage at select areas.
  • Prioritized access to additional workshop registration.

The 2017 Engineer Pass is extremely limited in number and will only be available while supplies last. Don’t sleep on it.
