    NEW YORK, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Moby, MCT
 Management, and SFX today announced the details for the new nationwide, summer
 music festival tour called AREA: ONE. The AREA: ONE tour will play 16 markets
 in North America beginning July 11th in Atlanta, and wind up in Los Angeles on
 August 5th.  The tour will visit major amphitheaters as well as some select
 non-traditional outdoor music venues. Tickets for the AREA: ONE Festival,
 presented by the Intel Pentium(R) 4 Processor, will go on sale this Saturday,
 April 28th in Holmdel, Seattle and Denver.  Check local listings for
 additional on-sale information.
     In addition to headliner, Moby, who will be making his only concert
 appearances of the year as part of AREA: ONE, the eclectic lineup includes
 Outkast, Incubus (East Coast Dates,) New Order (West Coast Dates,) Nelly
 Furtado (on select dates), Paul Oakenfold, The Orb, Carl Cox, The Roots, and
 Rinocerose.
     In the same way that Lollapalooza redefined the notion of music festivals
 and opened the door for awareness and acceptance of alternative music a decade
 ago, the goal of AREA: ONE is to bring together the best in music --
 contemporary, cutting edge and electronic.
     Moby explains about the festival, "My reason for putting together
 AREA: ONE is that there is a lot of music in the world that I love that does
 not always get the appropriate exposure."
     At festival venues, Intel will present a Digital Music Zone where
 concert-goers can enjoy their favorite AREA: ONE artists' music and videos
 using the power of Pentium(R) 4 processor-based PCs and Intel peripherals.
 Visitors will be able to create their own music videos, mix music, create and
 send e-mail postcards to friends and family, and sample tracks on audio
 players.
     In addition to the main concert stage, AREA: ONE will include the FORD
 FOCUS AREA, an air-conditioned tent featuring a unique quad sound system to
 highlight the music being spun by the DJs, like Paul Oakenfold, The Orb, Timo
 Maas, Detroit's The Innovators, featuring Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin
 Saunderson.  (Enclosed is more information on Ford Focus sponsor).
     During the multi-act festival, fans seeking an energy boost will be able
 to sample KMX, the official energy drink of AREA: ONE.  To celebrate the
 AREA: ONE experience at each tour stop, KMX will be the exclusive host of
 special pre- and post festival parties that will be held in the most popular
 local nightclubs.  The parties will be energized by top DJs and plenty of KMX.
 (Enclosed is more information on KMX sponsor).
     New York-based kpe, the leading digital partner for media and
 entertainment companies, has been engaged to build and maintain the official
 website of AREA: ONE (http://www.areafestival.com) which will officially be
 launched today.
     A portion of the proceeds from the AREA: ONE tour will go charity.  Two of
 the charities that will receive benefits are GREENPEACE and LIFEBEAT.

    NEW YORK, April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Moby, MCT
 Management, and SFX today announced the details for the new nationwide, summer
 music festival tour called AREA: ONE. The AREA: ONE tour will play 16 markets
 in North America beginning July 11th in Atlanta, and wind up in Los Angeles on
 August 5th.  The tour will visit major amphitheaters as well as some select
 non-traditional outdoor music venues. Tickets for the AREA: ONE Festival,
 presented by the Intel Pentium(R) 4 Processor, will go on sale this Saturday,
 April 28th in Holmdel, Seattle and Denver.  Check local listings for
 additional on-sale information.
     In addition to headliner, Moby, who will be making his only concert
 appearances of the year as part of AREA: ONE, the eclectic lineup includes
 Outkast, Incubus (East Coast Dates,) New Order (West Coast Dates,) Nelly
 Furtado (on select dates), Paul Oakenfold, The Orb, Carl Cox, The Roots, and
 Rinocerose.
     In the same way that Lollapalooza redefined the notion of music festivals
 and opened the door for awareness and acceptance of alternative music a decade
 ago, the goal of AREA: ONE is to bring together the best in music --
 contemporary, cutting edge and electronic.
     Moby explains about the festival, "My reason for putting together
 AREA: ONE is that there is a lot of music in the world that I love that does
 not always get the appropriate exposure."
     At festival venues, Intel will present a Digital Music Zone where
 concert-goers can enjoy their favorite AREA: ONE artists' music and videos
 using the power of Pentium(R) 4 processor-based PCs and Intel peripherals.
 Visitors will be able to create their own music videos, mix music, create and
 send e-mail postcards to friends and family, and sample tracks on audio
 players.
     In addition to the main concert stage, AREA: ONE will include the FORD
 FOCUS AREA, an air-conditioned tent featuring a unique quad sound system to
 highlight the music being spun by the DJs, like Paul Oakenfold, The Orb, Timo
 Maas, Detroit's The Innovators, featuring Juan Atkins, Derrick May, and Kevin
 Saunderson.  (Enclosed is more information on Ford Focus sponsor).
     During the multi-act festival, fans seeking an energy boost will be able
 to sample KMX, the official energy drink of AREA: ONE.  To celebrate the
 AREA: ONE experience at each tour stop, KMX will be the exclusive host of
 special pre- and post festival parties that will be held in the most popular
 local nightclubs.  The parties will be energized by top DJs and plenty of KMX.
 (Enclosed is more information on KMX sponsor).
     New York-based kpe, the leading digital partner for media and
 entertainment companies, has been engaged to build and maintain the official
 website of AREA: ONE (http://www.areafestival.com) which will officially be
 launched today.
     A portion of the proceeds from the AREA: ONE tour will go charity.  Two of
 the charities that will receive benefits are GREENPEACE and LIFEBEAT.
