Festival Preview: Snowball 2013


Well it is that time of year again as thousands will begin their trek to the Rocky Mountain State for some seriously high elevation partying at the 2013 Snowball Music Festival. Boasting a new location in Winter Park this year we expect Snowball 2013 to be the largest yet. Not that previous Snowballs haven’t been amazing, but plagued with unhappy city officials, far-reaching after party venues, and with almost a 3 hour drive from the airport to the previous venue this new Winter Park location is sure to be quite an upgrade. This years lineup is sure to impress as Colorado favorites Big Gigantic, STS9, and Pretty Lights will each be headlining one night and are sure to get the home crowd fired up as usual. With tons of talent lined up for this year from break-out hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar to other up and comers such as Luminox, Gigamesh, and Crizzly this is not an event to miss.

If you haven’t already purchased your tickets you are going to want to head over the Official Snowball website and make that happen before they run out! Snowball has also release a limited number of Single Day Passes that will be available until they run out, so if you can’t make it up for the whole weekend at least pick one day and send it! Also be sure to check out all the After Party Venues HERE and if you enjoy a hot breakfast and a strong mimosa after a long night in the cold then you won’t want to miss the first annual SnowBrunch at Snowball in support of Phoenix 999.

I put together a short ten song playlist of Snowball must haves from a few of this years artists to get everyone excited and these can be downloaded or streamed below. If somehow you are still on the fence about this amazing event, and have never been before,  just have a look at last years video below and I am sure it will shoot tingles all the way down your spine and ignite those oh so familiar festival feelings. Hope to see you all out there!
