About HATCHfest Asheville
The second annual HATCHfest Asheville will take place from April 15 -18, 2010. It will bring in the brightest minds from the intersection of design and technology, including acclaimed and award-wining film directors, fashion designers, inventors, journalists, songwriters and architects. The mission is to inspire the next generation of innovators through mentorship. One of the highlights for 2010 is the participation of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus and acclaimed singer/songwriter Matt Morris.
Matt released his chart-topping debut album, "When Everything Breaks Open" in January. The record has received critical acclaim, radio airplay and has landed him on several TV shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the George Lopez Show and David Letterman. Matt has toured extensively with such artists as the Indigo Girls and Joan Osborne and has been featured at the Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits Music Festivals. Matt is one of music's most renowned songwriters. His songs have been performed by Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguillera and Kelly Clarkson.
During the week, HATCHfest Asheville will host educational events, networking parties, workshops, concerts, film screenings and exhibits for the general public.
