2013 Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit (Preview and Schedule)

The 2013 Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit will take place from October 25 - 27 in Asheville, North Carolina.

The 2013 Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit will take place from October 25 - 27 in Asheville, North Carolina. AC Entertainment, Inc., the producer/promoter of the festival, has a history with electronic music events in Asheville, having previously produced and programmed the city's Moogfest from 2010 to 2012. The promotional materials for the summit describe a "vision and programming philosophy" that "celebrate the creative spirit of musical exploration, along with the innovative spark that fuels all of the arts."

In addition to dozens of live performances, events will include Saturday's "Inventors' Roundtable" moderated by Matthew Sherwood of Make Noise and Sherwood's Music. The featured inventors will be Tony Rolando, Richard Devine, Paul Vo and August Worley. Also planned for Saturday is an "Artist Spotlight" with Gary Numan -- an interview conducted by Electronic Musician Magazine's Geary Yelton.
