Hey Moogers, we know you have questions, so throughout the day we'll give you answers and information on key changes about the 2012 festival, stay tuned!
Moogfest has just announced that the dates for this year's Moogfest will be Friday, October 26 & Saturday, October 27 in downtown Asheville, NC.
The core festival is taking place inside Asheville's U.S. Cellular Center, formerly the Asheville Civic Center. As in previous years, attendees will be able to flow freely in and out of the ExploreAsheville.com Arena and the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. In addition, this year we will utilize the center’s Exhibition Hall, which we will turn into a full-blown nightclub that will feature world class DJ’s. And no, we won’t be doing an outdoor stage this year. Asheville is beautiful, but the weather is unpredictable in late October and we want you and the artists to have the best possible experience.
Weekend passes will be available for the U.S. Cellular Center as well as single day tickets. This year’s pass will be more affordable, offer more flexibility as well as – here’s the best part – guaranteed admission to the U.S. Cellular Center.
After the shows at the U.S. Cellular Center have ended, there will be separately ticketed late night performances at The Orange Peel and other venues throughout downtown Asheville. And again, when you buy a ticket for any late night event, you are guaranteed entry. Moogfest weekend pass holders will be given first crack at tickets for these shows in a special presale. You can build your own festival experience to fit your budget. You will have options. We like giving you options. Once again, the Moogfest line-up will be announced in mid-July.
Hey everyone! Would like to try to offer some clarity and ONE BIG CORRECTION. The correction first: as in previous years, there will be shows at other venues outside of US Cellular Center and those shows will be happening concurrently. Now for some clarity: We will be announcing the full schedule of events so that you can make your ticketing choices from the beginning. That's why we are waiting to have the full schedule together before announcing the acts. The new pricing structure will make attending Moogfest more affordable for many, while also guaranteeing admission for those who have purchased tickets to the shows at the smaller venues. As always, we're committed to creating an amazing festival experience...because we want all of you to come to Asheville and party with us!
