SnowGlobe Music Festival — the EDM and hip-hop heavy celebration held across three stages — counts down the nights to New Year’s Eve beneath the snow-capped peaks of South Lake Tahoe, returning for its ninth year.

This will be the first year that Lake Tahoe’s homegrown music festival will have the full heft of its MTV sponsorship behind it throughout the booking process, meaning that SnowGlobe will be pulling some big names this year.

CloZee, Elohim, JPEGMAFIA, Blunts & Blondes, Zhu, Whethan, Louis The Child, Doja Cat, E-40, Neil Frances, and Vince Staples are among the 50+ performers slated for this year’s festival. While Skrillex will be performing to countdown into the new year.

For those who have never braved the cold for this festival before, SnowGlobe is unique in bringing a completely different vibe to the environment – with coordinated onesies and pajamas being just as common as vintage ski outfits and layered up rave gear. Local freestyle skiers and snowboarders launch off big air ramps between acts, and colored lights and booming bass shine and bounce off of the surrounding pine trees into the dark mountain skies each night.

SnowGlobe Music Festival embraces the snowy Lake Tahoe atmosphere while bringing three nights of DJs and performers to dance into the new year. This is a festival unlike any other and one of the largest parties the Tahoe area has to offer each year.
