Moogfest 2018 returns to quaint Durham, NC, on May 17-20. The three-day event will once again offer music and technology fans an assortment of panels and music showcases organized by one of the mainstays in the world of synthesizers.
If you’ve ever dreamed about building their own Moog synth, well, you’re in luck. The brand is offering the rare opportunity to construct an unreleased at this year’s Moogfest.
Those who purchase the $1500 for the Engineer Festival pass will get the chance to build the Sub-Harmonicon, a brand-new, unreleased synth, alongside Moog engineers.
The synth is inspired by the Trautonium, the Rythmicon, and the Schillinger System and is described as “a semi-modular harmonic kaleidoscope that divides into itself until everything that is up becomes down.”

The two-day workshop is open to all enthusiasts — a technical background in synth-building isn’t required, but space is limited. In addition to building your own synth and getting full access to panels and showcases, the passes gets you the following:
- VIP Access to all events and exclusive areas.
- Complimentary food and beverage in select areas.
- Prioritized access to workshop registration.
- Access to a dedicated Festival Concierge who organizes your Engineer class schedule and is available for any questions you have may have.
- A custom embroidered patch representing the 2018 Engineer Workshop class.
