The more the merrier!
My wristband is all registered. I'm packed. Flight out of Phoenix at 6:30am landing in Charlotte at 4:00pm.
Hey I'm finally I Ashville between screaming kids , Mormons , grumpy old lady , accident prone stewardess I survived ! I might stop by Friday to the pizza buffet if that's cool, what time is it ?
It's hard to read past posts I'm accessing this on my phone .
The hotel clerk just told me day drinking is the best attraction in Ashville.

Oh man I woke up late and missed the meet up if you guys are going to get together again this weekend id like to try again. I over drank on Thursday.
Big Black Delta canceled.
They just moved the Sorne and Cashmere Cat times around
What a 1st day. It was awesome meeting up at ABC with the pizza and ice cream buffet! That Mountain Oasis Electric Pale Ale is one delicious beer.
Neutral Milk Hotel sounded so perfect last night! What a great sounding auditorium! Im so pumped for Zola Jesus tonight!

What a fantastic festival so far. Asheville is a totally rad city. The festival is super well organized and every single person I have met and talked to has been great. Not a single bad set so far either. Loving it here.
Most important thing for me at a fest is the sound and both the sound at the arena and the theater were fantastic!
Seven Sows: Bourbon and Larder...by the Orange Peel....is the fucking jam! Get there.
Zola Jesus was fantastic! Nine Inch Nails sounded great in the arena, same with Bosnian Rainbows, Gary Numan, Godspeed. Great day of music with great people. Asheville truly is an awesome place. Tonight is going to be quite a dance party!

I'm having a great time at the festival ! Ashville is just as awesome as it was for Moogfest in 2011! I will be back ! It was cool they announced Big Ears is coming back!
awesome weekend. great to meet rage and paul and faxy.
only thing they need to fix is the scanning in and out of the thomas wolfe shows. friday and saturday they had one girl scanning people. she was balling by the end of animal collective saturday night. sunday they added one more person scanning in but getting out was still kind of a shit show.
Well that was a fantastic weekend. It was nice to meet Paul and Rage and I am sorry that I didn't get a chance to meet the other boarders that were at the festival.
I'm glad that everyone had a good time. It was a great festival and Asheville is such a cool city. My stand-out sets were Purity Ring, Deltron 3030 (loved their rendition of "Clint Eastwood"), Neutral Milk Hotel (got a little choked up), GY!BE (loved that they closed with "East Hastings"), Nine Inch Nails, and Mount Kimbie. My only regret is missing Gary Numan.
I probably gained twenty pounds from all of the delicious food and craft beer I consumed everywhere I turned.
What a killer weekend. Had so much fun. Great meeting heart cooks brain and tickle me elmo. Had a great time hanging out with Eric, Josh, Becky, Jenny and Paul too. Saw a black bear in a neighbors tree. Airbnb place was perfectly located, the city is to fucking die for. Loved Asheville. Even got to explore a local dentist office while I was there lol. Checked out the Biltmore on the last day but just did the wine tour, tastings and a fancy yummy dinner. I would like to do this fest again next year.
Top 6 for me.
autre ne veut
Neutral Milk Hotel
Deltron3030 w/ orchestra
honroable mention to Ulrich Schnauss. I left early for Disclosure and can't wait to see him again.
It was pretty great to play around with some synths too and see the moog represented all weekend and even coming through last minute for Neutral Milk Hotel by supplying them with a moog after theirs broke last minute.
One reason I need to go back is to explore more belgian beers and drink at the belgian bar downstairs of the Thirsty Monk.
Well said Faxy. What a great weekend indeed! I think I could get used to going to festivals that start at 7pm... having that extra time to explore beautiful Asheville, drink amazing beers, explore MOOG museums and get to play with a bunch of neat devices and try a theremin for the 1st time was a unique highlight. It was great seeing everyone again, and meeting Heart Cooks Brain, Tickle Me Elmo, Concertgoer... great people. The music all weekend was fantastic, my top acts for the weekend had to be Neutral Milk Hotel, Nine Inch Nails, Cut Copy, Zola Jesus & Godspeed.

Also bummed that I missed autre ne veut since I heard good things, but Jessie Ware killed it so I am ok that decision.
I just saw that William Basinksi was there!? Tell me one of you bastards saw him.
I was there for a bit
Wasn't really my thing
I knew he was going to be performing Nocturnes and I thought it was interesting but I certainly saw quite a bit of people leave his set. Highlight of the weekend was definitely Neutral Milk Hotel. If (and when) they play Coachella next year, I would HIGHLY recommend. It was great meeting Josh, Becky, Paul, Jenny, Mark and Eric too, thanks guys. Depending on the lineup, I would love to go again next year and I'm interested to see what Moogfest brings also.
Finally getting some time to sit down and regroup after my vacation. Man. What a trip. I cannot get over how cool of a city Asheville is. The people, the food, the beer, the street musicians... everything was just so awesome. I imagined it being some quiet little mountain town and I honestly wasn't sure what I would be doing till 7pm each day. As it turned out, we didn't even get to do or see everything we wanted to. It seemed every corner you turned there was either a cool thing to see or a place we wanted to eat/ drink at. It was also fantastic spending so much time with old friends (Paul, Jenny, Mark, and Erik), and meeting new ones (Alex, Nik, Brendan). This festival turned out to be even more fun and a much more enjoyable experience than I could have ever imagined, and I had high expectations. I don't think MoogFest or Mountain Oasis will be in the card for me next year... but I would love to return to the city one day. For all those debating on Mountain Oasis next year... just go. It was incredibly well organized, each venue brought its unique charm to the performances, and Asheville is just an overall awesome city.
I had a big time there. Asheville is the perfect place for a festival this size. The people are cool, there's tons of stuff going on alongside the festival tract and the nature is righteous in October in the mountains. Some friends and I wrote a review of it if you're interested. http://www.blanknews.com/festivals/6...in-oasis-recap
