The team behind the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit announced today that it would not be returning in 2014 due to the challenges they’ve been facing bringing the event to fruition in Asheville.
It’s true. We’ve decided to press the “pause” button on Mountain Oasis for 2014 in Asheville. It’s been a difficult decision. We’re very proud of what we’ve created and produced over the past four years in Asheville: Moogfest 2010 – 2012 and Mountain Oasis 2013. The enthusiasm and response from those who attended and supported those festivals was amazing – a true inspiration for all of us here at AC.
Unfortunately, the success necessary to sustain the venture has eluded us. And many of the challenges we have faced in producing the festival have increased. It feels more and more like we’re trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. So, after four years of considerable investment and hard work, we’ve decided to put Mountain Oasis on hold, while we pursue some exciting opportunities elsewhere.
