Mountain Oasis Music Summit Hits Asheville North Carolina This October


Bands from all over the world converge on the "Paris of the South" starting Friday, October 25th when the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit takes over downtown Asheville for three magical days. Tickets are on sale now and Carolina Mornings has vacation rental options for the weekend, but they are filling up fast! There are still some wonderful vacation rental options available. Don't miss out - this is a great last-minute getaway and an absolute must for music lovers.


The main event venues are located in the US Cellular Center, the ever-popular Orange Peel, the intimate Asheville Music Hall, and the Diana Wortham Theatre at Pack Square. At these locations, you will find big name musicians taking the stage, including Nine Inch Nails, Bass Nectar, GodSpeed, You Black Emperor!, and electronica favorites Pretty Lights and Neutral Milk Hotel. Other must sees are Daniel Johnston, Animal Collective, Bosnian Rainbows, Silver Apples, Disclosure, the Sparks, the Chromatics, and THE Gary Numan (who doesn't love The Cars?).

Incidentally, Neutral Milk Hotel has sold out every stop of their tour in the US from now until late spring. If you are a fan, you know that this reunion tour is something not to be missed; Mountain Oasis is the only place you can still get tickets to see them.

Mountain Oasis isn't just about big name music. There are two local components as well - chances to experience our amazing beer and music scenes. Asheville has talented local musicians that are showcased at several venues throughout downtown in conjunction with the festival. Emerald Lounge, the Mill Room, and Lexington Avenue Brewery are all hosting a wide array of events. Tickets are available for Mountain Oasis weekend ticket holders as well as the general public.


The Mountain Oasis Craft Beer Experience offers several different Craft Beer Packages. Each is a different way to enjoy the flavors of our local breweries. From the Electric Pale Ale Package, which includes the limited edition Mountain Oasis 17oz Eco Vessel beer stein, to the Holy Gaelic Grail Package, which includes a Brewer's Brunch at LAB featuring four local brewers and a trip to Highland Brewery, there is definitely something for every beer lover in attendance.


After a rocking day, what better way to unwind than with your very own mountain oasis?

Red House

Red House, located just south of downtown Asheville, is a beautiful home and a terrific choice for groups. Quiet and private, this superb vacation rental has a bunk room (think slumber party!), a game room, and a kitchen that even the choosiest gourmet chefs will love. It also includes a wonderful outdoor area where you can unwind and compare the day's highlights around the creekside fire pit.

Perhaps, after spending the day with thousands of your closest friends, you'd like to get away from it all and experience the sweet luxuries of life. If so, La Dolce Vita at Scenic Wolf Resort will fit like a glove. Set high above the maddening crowd at 4,000 feet elevation, La Dolce Vita offers stunning panoramic mountain views, a hot tub and pool table, and your very own sidewalk cafe for sipping espresso before hitting the festival.


Allow us to help you make your stay one to remember. Give Carolina Mornings a call today. It will be music to our ears.
