Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit has revealed the lineup for its 2013 festival, which takes places October 25th-27th in Asheville, North Carolina. It’s just the best.

There’s a reunion of Neutral Milk Hotel and two performances by Trent Reznor — one with Nine Inch Nails and one with How to Destroy Angels. There’s also Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Animal Collective, Gary Numan, Tricky, Zola Jesus, Jessie Ware, Disclosure, Chromatics, and Daniel Johnston.

And to round out the preliminary lineup, Mountain Oasis offers Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, The Bug, Rustie, Silver Apples, Bosnian Rainbows, Robert DeLong, Jacques Green, and Bondax. The full lineup of 50-60 artists will be announced in the coming weeks.

The concerts will all take place indoors, within easy walking distance of one another, in the heart of downtown Asheville. Venues include the ExploreAsheville.com Arena and the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, both housed under one roof at the U.S. Cellular Center, the Orange Peel; the the Diana Wortham Theatre; and the Asheville Music Hall.

Weekend passes go on sale Thursday, May 2nd at Noon EST through the festival’s website.

Here’s the lineup poster (to have as a souvenir).

Numan’s name should be below NIN.

Guess I’ll have to wait and see who else is added. It’s an eclectic lineup for sure, and it would be awesome to see NMH, but I’m not feeling the double Reznor billing and dubstep.

Now I regret not attending in the years past. It is a decent line up but the fest has obviously changed.

Completely different festival than Moogfest.

Moogfest will be back in 2014 and hopefully on par with the last three years.

This isn’t Moog sponsored.

pretty good, though a lot of similarities with Voodoo. may have to skip this year (but Godspeed! UGH!)

Disappointing line up…

Definitely not winning “everything.” This is a pretty good lineup, and obviously having NMH is awesome, but definitely not even close to the best lineup. my opinion at least
