Each year, hundreds of festivals try to top their lineups from previous years. While some are lucky enough to survive in this saturated market, and limp forward (and the unlucky disappear into lengthy hiatuses), a select few boldly burst into the next year with momentum, excitement, and headliners that make your jaw drop to the floor.
SnowGlobe is part of that latter group, who have assembled such a star-studded cast of electronic music's biggest artists for their return to Lake Tahoe Community College in South Lake Tahoe, CA it's almost hard to believe. Once again, SnowGlobe is back in Tahoe December 29-31, 2014, and it's easy to say this is their biggest year ever.
Topping the bill are Disclosure, Flume, Porter Robinson, Skrillex, and Zedd. I mean... sheesh. That's pretty much your top-tier festival talent, right there. A who's-who of wildly popular acts such as this could sell out the festival 3-days in a row, and you don't really need anyone else.
Not that it stopped the SnowGlobe team from trying.
On top of the superstar fivesome, legendary rapper Atmosphere is on board, as well as dubstep champion Flux Pavilion, indie darlings Phantogram, and 2014's biggest breakout story, Seattle hip-hop duo ODESZA.
Future funk is well repped by The Floozies and Cherub. Dirtybird is bringing Justin Martin and J.Phlip to the table. Trap star Bro Safari is buffeted by Branchez and future beatmakers Djemba Djemba and Trippy Turtle, and a whole host of up-and-comers round out the lineup.
Obviously the music is only a part of the attraction for fans to hit beautiful northern California. Over-the-top production is a staple of SnowGlobe, and you can pretty much count on ringing in the New Year with some epic pyromania. Stage setups and lights will be on point, as well as crisp, clean sound.
The biggest attraction, of course, is winter sports, with access to great slopes with some really top-notch packages set to get you and your buddies taken care of on the hotel front, with shuttles back and forth to the lifts, and rides to the shows each night.
