moe. is very excited to announce the first round of artists for their annual Labor Day weekend festival. Joining moe. will be: The Black Keys, Built to Spill, Tortoise, Ryan Montbleau Band and The Brew. This 3 day event has become known for its laid back vibe and great music, as well as its intimate and scenic setting. With only 2 stages, bands never overlap and patrons never miss a beat!

A limited number of Early Bird Tickets are on sale now through moe.ticketing for $90, until the allotment sells out or June 1st when the second tier limited allotment of $110 kicks in. Look for another round of artists to be announced in the coming weeks.

moe.down has a history of bringing a diverse collection of artists to the festival over the 10 year history. Bands that have played in the past include The Flaming Lips, Perry Farrell's Satellite Party, Cake, The Roots, Method Man and Redman, The Wailers, Ani Difranco, Amos Lee, Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Avett Brothers and more.

moe.down 11 announcement

Posted: March 22nd, 2010 After a successful and enjoyable decade in Turin, moe.down opts for a change of scenery: Gelston Castle Estate in Mohawk, NY. Or perhaps we should say...moe.hawk?

First Roosevelt, then Rostropovich. Now moe. will bring crowds over Labor Day weekend to the 330-acre Central New York site, which boasts breath-taking views of the Mohawk Valley and an impressive history. Majestic ruins of the 1833 castle still stand, along with the 8,300 square foot mansion built by cellist and humanitarian Mstislav "Maestro" Rostropovich, which now operates on windpower. Often called "Nature's Palace", the estate was once the place where the Nation's most historic environmental advocate, President Theodore Roosevelt, spent his childhood summers, and is now the home of Green Leadership Institute.

As moe. fans know, the moe.down festival is like, as Al Schnier once described, 'a big family picnic'. The band members revel in surrounding themselves with friends, family and great music and pride themselves on giving their fans a memorable and enjoyable festival experience. Thousands travel each Labor Day weekend to gather for this down-home pilgrimage, and for many, plans for the next moe.down begin during the journey home from the last one.

With a new festival site comes new details. moe. and the organization realize that fans are eager for information, and will provide travel, accommodation and other important info soon. The festival will continue its tradition of hosting ample vending, a Kids' tent and various charitable causes, as well as presenting an unprecedented lineup of talented artists whose music span a wide variety of genres. We hope to see you all up in moe.hawk for moe.down!

A limited amount of $90 Early Bird tickets will go on sale 4/1.

IMPORTANT ATLANTA ON-SALE INFORMATION

IMPORTANT ATLANTA ON-SALE INFORMATION

Service fees tacked on to ticket purchases have long been a source of grumbling from concertgoers everywhere. The moe. management team has been listening to fans' feedback, studying past ticket sale statistics and negotiating with Live Nation for several months in an effort to find some sort of middle ground to satisfy fans, the band and the ticketing company. With some fees totaling upwards to a third of the original base ticket price, it's not surprising that many fans choose not to buy advance tickets, waiting instead and taking a chance on buying tickets at the door on the day of the show.

After much debate with Live Nation over this trend, moe. was able to strike a deal with the company for a special promotion on the first day of ticket sales for their Atlanta shows. On January 8th, Live Nation is waiving all service fees on moe. Atlanta tickets. Tell all your friends and make sure as many of you as possible participate. The powers that be at Live Nation will be watching and success with this promotion could mean moe. might have the ability to request similar on-sale deals with other venues across the country.

Bigger bands have taken on the ticketing agencies in the past with some success, and any stride we make as a band toward a more reasonable and fair ticketing experience is an important one. But we cannot do it without our fans. Put it on your calendar, tell your friends, post it on your facebook status but whatever you do MAKE SURE and buy your Tabernacle tickets SERVICE FEE FREE on January 8th. Remember: this is only on the very first day of on-sale. We'd like to thank Live Nation for working with us on this venture.

Pre-sale and gerneral pulic on-sale for all dates are happening now. Please go to the tour page for more information.
