About SnowBall Music Festival:
There simply is no other festival in the world like SnowBall Music Festival. Going into its sophomore year, SnowBall is quickly demanding the attention of critics and tastemakers, taking the concept of a music festival to a whole new level. Drawing attention once again for a stellar lineup of indie rock and dance music artists, SnowBall is setting the standard as one of the most exciting and unique festivals to emerge in recent years. Offering all the perks of a world-class music festival—with the distinct bonus of being set in a skier and snowboarder's paradise—the SnowBall Music Festival proposes the ultimate marriage of music and mountains.
For three days this March, SnowBall will sprawl out across Colorado’s legendary Vail Valley, offering a diverse lineup of artists on multiple stages to pair the world's best musicians with the world’s best snow conditions; making the SnowBall Music Festival the ultimate winter getaway for music fans.
In April, following the success of their inaugural event, SnowBall organizers released a number of advance 3-day passes for the 2012 festival, which promptly sold out in under six hours—a reflection of the incredible fan experience of year one. Past SnowBall performers include: The Flaming Lips, Local Natives, Twin Shadow, Lord Huron, Pretty Lights, Miami Horror and Candy Claws among others.
