South Lake Tahoe, nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, is known as America’s all year playground and is filled with incredible natural wonders. It also happens to be the location of one of America’s coolest New Year’s Eve celebrations, SnowGlobe.

Holy lineup! This three day festival taking place December 29-31 will feature world-class talent across three stages. Tiesto, Kaskade, Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion), Zeds Dead, Beats Antique, Gramatik, Dillon Francis, Claude VonStroke, Kill Paris, Treasure Fingers, The Polish Ambassador, Luminox, Love & Light, The Floozies, Gladkill, and many more. There is also an additional surprise headliner to be announced on November 3rd.

Due to the chilly weather, this is not a camping festival. There are a variety of lodging options at nearby hotels, resorts and casinos. Check out the selection here. Shuttles are provided to get to and from the properties and the festival venue.

Advance 3-day festival passes are available for $149.00 and will go up to $164.00 on November 1st. 3-day passes with a shuttle pass included are $169.00.

Early Bird VIP tickets are available for $299.00 and include a VIP wristband, shuttle pass, access to VIP heated lounge, elevated viewing platform, VIP bar and restrooms, and express entry. These tickets will go up to $349.00 on November 1st. VIP Golden Tickets are available for $599.00 and include all of the above in addition to premium open bar.

Feeling lucky? Enter our contest for a chance to win tickets to this event - VIP style of course.

This is definitely a festival for those who don’t mind bundling up. Temps are typically in the 30s-40s during the day and the teens at night this time of year, so bring your fuzzy coats, Spirit Hoods, snow boots, and whatever festive clothes you can layer.

A huge draw of this festival (and a factor that makes it unique from many other festivals) - three days of skiing and snowboarding among some of the world’s best snow conditions. Throw in ice sculptures, fireworks, ski jumps, yummy food, hot chocolate, and coffee drinks, and of course a selection of brewskies, and you’re in for an unparalleled snowy adventure to ring in the new year.

Can’t wait til  December 29? Join the SnowGlobe fam in San Francisco on November 22 for a pre-party with Amon Tobin, Just Blaze, G Jones, Stylust Beats, Digital Rust, and many more with dedicated rooms for deep house, future music, trap, glitch hop, and bass. Tickets are $25.00 and will go up to $30.00.

You will not want to miss this rare chance to mix live electronic music with fresh powder galore. Music and mountains...does it get any better?
