So yeah, let’s do NYE here
With Christmas behind us, it’s time to look forward to the real party! SnowGlobe Music Festival will be kicking off in Tahoe this Saturday and continuing through New Years Eve with a closing set from Chromeo. It’s a nice blend of traditional DJs, dubstep artists and electro pop acts set in an extremely unique location. I’ve never done a music festival in the snow so this one should be interesting.
I’ll be at the festival covering it with the FrequenScene crew, but thought I’d use the blog to call out some of the most exciting acts to look forward to. You know all the big names (Deadmau5, Wiz Khalifa, Chromeo) but there’s a treasure trove of artists to be excited about. Here are a few highlights, in no particular order:
Delicious Prince-esque electro pop reflecting on life, relationships and drugs. They’ll take the stage on Sunday.
An Electric Panda Music all-time favorite with a high likelihood of a breakout year in 2013. It’ll be hard to decide between them or Cherub when they play Sunday.
I don’t know a whole lot about Popeska, but I know this song BEGS to be heard live. Sunday at the Sierra Tent.
Had a chance to interview this guy for FrequenScene. Not just a DJ, DeLong incorporates a ton of crazy shit into his live shows, including Wii-Motes. See him do his thing on Sunday.
A local Bay Area musician, Lynx takes the stage on Saturday (and also makes a guest appearance in the FrequenScene interview with Beats Antique).
Chilled out, sunny beats to kick Monday of the festival off right
