SnowGlobe Music Festival: The Best New Years Eve Tradition

New Years Eve is celebrated around the world in many different ways. When in Switzerland, you celebrate  by dropping ice cream on the floor. In Romania, you put on a bear costume and dance from house to house. And of course, watching the ball drop in Time Square is a New York staple.

But, when you’re in Lake Tahoe the weekend of December 31st, the place to be is SnowGlobe Music Festival, dancing into the new year alongside tens of thousands of other friendly faces

So, mark your calendars. Because the 7th annual SnowGlobe music festival is right around the corner.

With the epitome of a winter wonderland less than a month away, it’s time to whip out those snow boots, beanies, scarves, face masks and funky snowsuits to get prepared for the New Years experience of a lifetime.

For those SnowGlobe veterans out there like myself, you are well aware of the monumental three-day chilly vibes you are about to happily endure from Dec 29th through 31st. For all those first time SnowGlobers, checkout what to bring here, so you can fully enjoy the entirety of the best New Years festival experience out there.

Not sure what to get your loved ones for Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanza  or whatever holiday you prefer to celebrate this joyous season? Why not gift them the paramount experience of dancing in the breathtaking atmosphere of South Lake Tahoe to some of the biggest artists in the game? Get your tickets pronto, because it would be a shame to miss out on three days filled with intricate stages, snowboarders, incredible artwork, Tahoe local eats, breathtaking fireworks, a welcoming community, and of course the most stacked lineup of 2018.

Let’s Talk Lineup:

The weather may be cold but the lineup is HOT.

SnowGlobe truly outdid themselves this year with headliners Dillon Francis, Porter Robinson, Travis Scott and Zedd. The lineup also features Bay Area classic E-40, a personal favorite of mine, who is returning this year. You can also look forward to killer artists Khalid, Tycho, and Madeon. Other big name artists gracing the stages include Allison Wonderland, Snakehips, Gryffin and TroyBoi. If those names right there don’t have you packing your hand warmers already, San Holo, Lane 8, Jai Wolf, and Shiba San should do it for you. Those are just a few of the 50-plus performers that are about to bring the heat at this year’s festivities. Check out the rest of the top acts here:


Having been a SnowGlober for the past four years, I can assure you that this is not one to miss. Last year, Odesza was the highlight of my weekend, closing out this magical event with an entrancing performance and setting the tone for the New Year.

SnowGlobe’s closing performer is nothing short of magical each year, as you can witness for yourself below:

So, while other people are celebrating New Years Eve with their own traditions around the world,  make your tradition being a part of SnowGlobe Music Festival in South Lake Tahoe.
