Moogfest is here…what does it mean for Fullsteam?

let's chat Moogfest


Moogfest is upon us, kicking off tomorrow (Thursday) and running through mid-day Sunday. 2017 marks the second year the landmark music festival lands in our neck of the woods. While the main stage is in the Motorco parking lot, the festival has expanded to include Fullsteam. What does this mean for you? Choose your adventure…

Not attending Moogfest? Though we’re closed to the public for much of the festival, we still have a few cool Fullsteamy things for you to enjoy…no festival pass required.

Thursday, 9pm: Fullsteam Trivia at The Pit!
Rachel will host trivia per normal, except you get to drink bourbon if you want. And, thanks to the good folks at The Pit, a selection of Fullsteam beer — they’ll have three or four of our offerings, and plenty of tasty craft beer from NC and beyond. We know it’s different, but we think it could be great fun. Plus, it’s Rachel! It’s always fun! Want more incentive to participate? You could win a couple of passes to Moogfest! So it’s settled, right? We’ll see you at 9pm tomorrow at The Pit.

Saturday, 12 to 4pm: Moogfest Record Fair, hosted by Merge Records and All Day Records 
Merge and All Day Records are inviting their favorite local labels, record stores, and collectors to showcase their offerings. The best part: this event is free, all ages, and open to the public! No festival pass is required. Participants include:

Merge Records
All Day Records
Bull City Records
Carolina Soul
Paradise of Bachelors

…all with music by DJs Karina & Magical Body!

Sunday, 4pm: We re-open to the public!
