Snowglobe Music Festival is fast approaching and although three day passes are sold out, single day tickets and VIP passes are still available.   While Scrillex and Zedd may be big draws for the under 30 crowd, my heart is overjoyed to see Phantogram and Atmosphere rounding out the line-up.

Here’s some insider’s tips to having your best fest:

  • If you’re coming from the Bay Area, you can catch a shuttle from the west coast to Tahoe via RYDE.  With multiple shuttles leaving various Bay Area locations, it’s the best way to get to Tahoe stress free to ring in the New Year.  If you fly into Reno, just hop on the South Tahoe Express for easy access to the Tahoe casino corridor.

  • Dress warm: snowsuits optional.  Keep your core warm with polypropylene base layers under tights and skirts and if you’re feeling really flush, buy those super cheap disposable hand and toe warmers at the grocery store.  You’ll be the only person there with warm toes and you won’t regret it.

  • Drink water. You’re from sea level? Drink three times as much water as you think you need. Those of us who live at altitude love to watch those of you from sea level get drunk on one beer. It happens.
  • Don’t forget to explore.  In the past few years, Snowglobe has added some amazing things to it’s line-up, one of which is talented artists.  Take a few minutes in between acts to explore the artwork on the graffiti wall that Brett Flanigan and Cannon Dill will be creating and expanding upon over the course of the three days.

  • Be prepared early.  You can pick up your snowglobe wristband at the Snowglobe Box Office in Montbleu starting on Saturday, December 27th.   Mobile charging lockers are coming to Snowglobe for the first time this year: reserve your locker for the weekend now!
