Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit to Feature Nine Inch Nails, Animal Collective + Neutral Milk Hotel
The inaugural edition of the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit is set to run from Oct. 25-27 in the heart of downtown Asheville, N.C., bringing a wealth of live music to venues including the U.S. Cellular Center, Thomas Wolfe Auditorium and the Orange Peel. The fest features Nine Inch Nails, Animal Collective and the newly reunited Neutral Milk Hotel, plus many more.
Among other acts on the initial lineup are How to Destroy Angels, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Disclosure, Daniel Johnston, Gary Numan, Half Japanese, Chromatics, Robert DeLong, the Bug, Tricky, Jessie Ware, Zola Jesus and JG Thirlwell, Rustie, Bosnian Rainbows, Jacques Greene, Bondax and Silver Apples.
The event, sponsored by AC Entertainment, shares much in common with Asheville’s beloved Moogfest, though the two events are not related. “This is very much a continuation of the same vision,” said Mountain Oasis producer Ashley Capps, formerly of Moogfest, in a recent statement. “We are trying to celebrate the present while acknowledging the past and anticipating the future. I have always considered the electronic aspect to be a thread rather than a box. We will have some artists who are not electronic, but most of them work significantly in that genre.”
Weekend passes for the three-day bash go on sale Thursday (May 2), with a limited amount of single-day tickets to be released in the coming weeks. Click here for more info.
