36,000 to attend SnowGlobe in South Lake Tahoe

SnowGlobe logoSnowGlobe’s organizer said he is prepared for the combination of the chronically tardy Snoop Dogg being on Tahoe time.

“Fortunately I have worked with Snoop before in Colorado,” Chad Donnelly said. “He certainly has the reputation for showing up late but that’s not something that will be happening this time around.”

Snoop Dogg will play his greatest hit on New Year's Eve at SnowGlobe.

The third annual, three-day SnowGlobe will be on a tight schedule with music coming from three stages. Adhering with the city and its Al Tahoe and Sierra Track neighborhoods near the soccer fields at Lake Tahoe Community College, the music will end at 11 p.m. on Sunday and Monday and 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, New Year’s Eve.

Tickets were still available late Saturday afternoon but Donnelly said SnowGlobe will sell out for the second straight year. He said 36,000 will attend during the three days.

More than 10,000 square feet in heated tent space has been added, along with more food and art vendors, a nightly fireworks show and a Burning Man-esque fire sculpture between the Sierra and Igloo tents. Shuttle service is offered with the online ticket purchases, and there are 160 parking spaces at nearby South Tahoe Middle School. With just traces of snow at lake level, as was the case two years ago, concertgoers can bicycle to SnowGlobe, too, Donnelly said.

While temperatures dropped below zero earlier this month, the overnight lows are forecast to be in the mid- to high 20s.

The music will be provided by a diverse, will-known cadre of artists. Snoop Dogg plans to play a greatest hits set.

“It’s an eclectic lineup,” Donnelly said. “A lot of people associate this with just dance music from top to bottom but the folks who really dig in will see there’s a ton of variety. Everything from Snoop, who is one of the biggest names in hip-hop history, to Tiesto and Kaskade, arguably two of the biggest DJs in the world right now, to the Australian band Cut Copy with all types of instrumentation, just an amazing band, and Claude Vonstroke, a big house name from the Bay Area who is gaining international prominence.”

Donnelly said he plans to continue to make SnowGlobe and annual event.

He also will present the fourth-annual SnowBall festival this winter in Colorado. The dates will be announced next week, he said.
