Three months out from its inaugural appearance in Durham, Moogfest has announced a few additions to its 250+ strong list of artists. Grimes and Miike Snow will join the festivities, as will Chicago house star The Black Madonna. Health, Skepta, Patricia, Bob Moses, and Raleigh's Eyes Low will perform, and Morton Subotnik and Sarah Davachi will pay tribute to the work of Don Buchla with Alessandro Cortini and Suzanne Ciani.

There's more to do in the daytime, too: Erika Anderson (aka EMA) will lead one of the festival's lengthy Durationals performances, while tAz Arnold will guide a daytime music meditation workshop at the Nasher Museum of Art. So far, only one artist has dropped from the lineup—London's Simian Mobile Disco.

The festival has also announced some of the art installations that will appear in and around downtown Durham throughout the event. Some the titular critters of Burt's Bees will contribute to a sound installation at the American Tobacco Campus. Another, titled WiFi Whisperer, will turn errant signals and data from cell phones and other devices into a dynamic combination of visuals and sounds.

Tickets to Moogfest, which runs May 19–22, are still available. And while you wait for May, Moogfest has released a streaming EP of collaborative work from past and present festival artists. You can listen to that and read this morning's full announcement below.
