By  | 

Asheville, N.C. – As usual, the costumed freaks came out pre-Halloween weekend in this beautiful university town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. And this year, it was for the first Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit presented by AC Entertainment.
Running this past Oct. 25-27 at various venues in downtown Asheville, N.C., the MOEMS presented more than 50 electronic-oriented acts, including several top DJs like Claude von Stroke and Bassnectar. DJ Times served as media sponsor to the festival and co-presented its closing party—The Orb at Orange Peel closing party. It all looked like this:
