Alabama Shakes – Hold On Band of Horses used to wear the crown for biggest crowd at Live On the Green until Alabama Shakes performed in 2012. Check out Alabama Shakes performance “Hold On” at Live On the Green. Filmed and edited by Make It Pop
Passion Pit – Take A Walk Passion Pit performs in front of a few fans in Griffin Technology’s Pre-Show Live event at Marathon Music Works. The band was running late, so we had to cut out the interview. Michael Angelakos, lead singer of Passion Pit was a little offended by this. Check out this live version of “Take A Walk”. We’ve also recorded “Constant Conversations” and “Sleepyheads” at the show.
The Lumineers – Classy Girl
If you heard The Lumineers first on Lightning 100, you’ve got Wells Adams to thank for that. After a few weeks of playing “Ho Hey” during our music meetings, the song made it to the airwaves. Lightning 100 was one of the first stations in the country to play The Lumineers…..and now you hear them everywhere.
Walk The Moon – Anna Sun
The young up-and-coming band Walk the Moon stopped by the studio without their face paint. Check out their performance “Anna Sun” live at Lightning 100. We’ve also got a recording of “Tightrope” on our HD On-demand Page. Read more

The festival will also host workshops, talks, interactive experiences and art exhibitions and installations.
“Last year’s reinvented Moogfest – the first to take place in Asheville – was an amazing experience – and the response from artists and fans alike was extraordinary,” says AC Entertainment founder, Ashley Capps. “We’re very excited and inspired to build upon that success for the 2011 festival.”
