When you think Rave, your mind usually goes to some grungy club or arena. People sweating on each other, and the rush to get back in your car and beat traffic out of the arena are all to standard. Well, Snowglobe is doing its best to awesomely flip that idea on its head. To start it off snowglobe is in the winter… Like actually cold out winter. 

Located in South Lake Tahoe and running from December 29-31, snow globe simply pulls this impossible feat off. 

Somehow between the warmth of thousands of other dancing ravers, seeing your favorite DJ, you forget that its cold out.

When I say DJ’s, I mean the biggest DJ’s in the game. For example, last year alone had Disclosure, Skrillex, Zedd, and new comers Flume! Still not convinced to make it to Snow Globe?? Fine, don’t go, we won’t miss much.

Now while its cold out, it also means that you can spend the day skiing/snowboarding around some of the best resorts in the country. You’ve got Heavenly, Northstar, Squaw and many others just minutes away! These aren’t mole hills either, some of the best Olympics stars use these resorts to train at. I can’t think of a better day than hitting the half pipe in the morning, and raving my face off at night. Can you? 

Snow Globe is also very much an arts festival. They strive to bring in great talent from across the country and put them on display. Additionally, this is the first year they are introducing a new artist grant program. If you want to bring your art to the festival, or create a piece during the event, Snowglobe will pay for you to come out. Now that’s really supporting art!
