It will also protest North Carolina’s House Bill 2, a law that enables discrimination across gender, sexual orientation, and class.

Moogfest, the Durham, NC festival that celebrates progressiveness in music and technology, is no stranger to getting political. This year should be even bigger, with the organizers including a new Protest Stage.

The stage was announced specifically with two things in mind: Trump’s travel ban of citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries to the United States and North Carolina’s HB2, “a law that enables discrimination across gender, sexual orientation, and class.”

As noted by the organizers, Protest is one of the themes of this year’s festival. On top of having a performance stage (with artists to be announced), the theme will “be brought to life through workshops, installations, conversations, and masterclasses.”

Artists already confirmed for Moogfest include Stranger Things composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs in collaboration with The Haxan Cloak, Laraaji, Simian Mobile Disco’s Jas Shaw and recent RVNG Intl. signees Visible Cloaks, among others.

Moogfest takes place May 18-21.
