Snowglobe Music Festival kicked off Day 1 with a bang and very few hiccups here in Tahoe South thanks to the behind the scenes organization from Live Loud Media out of Denver, Co. New additions to the junior festival include a large warming tent and White Guy Pad Thai, run by documentary filmmaker Bryan Sharp, who is normally found pedaling a bicycle cart around Los Angeles delivering up gluten free chicken or tofu pad thai to the late night masses.
Snowglobe is always sparse early on in the day and it’s my favorite time to cruise around and check out new bands. By the time The Polish Ambassador took the stage at 6:15, the masses had arrived and he had no problem getting the Sierra Tent rocking as throngs of festival goers packed it in tight for his eclectic blend of music styles.
My highlight of the day came from New York City and DFA Records signed Holy Ghost! with their throwback-disco-electronic dance jams that had my feet moving even while I was taking photos. The highlights of the massive crowd were certainly Gramatik and Tiësto, who closed out the night amid fireworks and cheers.
