Moogfest renamed 'Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit' for 2013

Posted By on Mon, Dec 10, 2012 at 3:14 PM

The Asheville, N.C., festival formerly known as Moogfest has been renamed as the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit for 2013 due to Moog Music Inc. deciding not to re-license the name to AC Entertainment.

From 2010 to 2012, Moogfest hosted a variety of acts including Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Orbital, Tangerine Dream, Jonsi, Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig and Brian Eno.

"We're taking this opportunity to rethink the event a bit and challenge ourselves," AC Entertainment CEO Ashley Capps says. "While we are still focused on Halloween weekend, that time of year has its difficulties and we've been encouraged to consider other options."
