Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit Tickets October 25th-27th 2013

A’Damaged Pro for Electronica Life…

I’ve been excited about the possibility of going to the inaugural year of Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit in Asheville, NC for several months now. Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, and Nine Inch Nails was all I really needed to hear in order to start getting pumped. Apparently I wished on enough stars and this dream is actually coming true.  Presently I am at Defcon: Turn UP.

Where did Mountain Oasis come from and who is responsible for throwing what will undoubtedly be a fixture on the national EDM festival circuit? MOEMS is the brainchild of AC Entertainment. For those that don’t recognize that name, AC Entertainment knows how to throw a party. Just ask anyone who has ever been to Bonnaroo. This company has a special relationship with the Asheville area and the pending success of MOEMS will further ingrain them in the local cultural landscape.

There is an additional element that will make this experience even more profound for me. My parents moved to Asheville a few months ago. My mom’s birthday will also be happening that same weekend. I haven’t seen my mom for her birthday in about a decade. To top it all off, I will be introducing my dad to my EDM world. I asked him to review the lineup and he chose to pop his “EDM cherry” with Bassnectar. I told him I’ll bring a special towel for when his face melts.

The Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit is an idealized synergy, focusing on electronica (in its various forms) and the interdependence on technology. Nestled in the picturesque city of Asheville, NC, this environment provides a break from the traditional hustle and bustle of a big city, while still offering world-class music, seminars, and panels with the affiliated artists. All of the events will be conducted indoors at facilities that are all located in the heart of downtown Asheville and within walking distance of each other including, but not limited to: The U.S. Cellular Center, the Orange Peel, and the Asheville Music Hall. For more info on the sites used… go here.

The Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit is programmed and produced by AC Entertainment, known as the founders and producers of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and the Big Ears Festival as well as the Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY. AC Entertainment produces over 750 concerts and events each year, and they have been the primary concert promoter in Asheville, NC, for over a quarter of a century. They currently book the Orange Peel and present numerous events annually at the U.S. Cellular Center. From 2010 – 2012, they programmed and produced Moogfest in Asheville, NC, which occupied the same weekend that is now Mountain Oasis. In those three years, they presented Brian Eno, Massive Attack, Jónsi, Orbital, Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Suicide, MGMT, Big Boi, Amon Tobin, Tim Hecker, Passion Pit, the Flaming Lips, and numerous others at the festival. – mountainoasisfestival.com
