7 Must-See Shows at SnowGlobe 2014 That Aren’t Headliners

There may not be a better way to ring in the New Year than attending SnowGlobe Music Festival, situated in scenic South Lake Tahoe, to the tune of Disclosure, Flume, Porter Robinson, Skrillex, and Zedd serving as major headliners. The EDM scene has equally dominated charts and fests in 2014, so SG seems like a natural cap to a year driven by DJs.

The most rowdy set should be Flume, with the Aussie-native shutting down the Main Stage as the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve. Skrillex and Porter Robinson will get similar nods on Friday and Saturday, respectively, so who else should you be seeing on Tahoe’s snowcapped mountains?

If you find yourself at SnowGlobe come this year’s end, make sure to check out these other fantastic acts that aren’t headliners.


7. Bro Safari

When he says “bro,” you say “safari.” Bro! Safari!

6. Branchez

Stretch appropriately for B’s brand of smooth, melodic trap.

5. Cherub

Their falsetto makes all the girls soon.

4. Odesza

Catchy beats, chill melodies, and poppy hooks. What’s not to love?

3. Flux Pavillon

FP will be sure to bust out hyper synths and a busy light show.

2. Atmosphere

A wildcard in a fest lined with EDM artists, but don’t sleep on this hip-hop duo. This will be a party.

1. Phantogram

Phantogram’s bouncy production and seductive vocals will have you feeling some type of way.

20 Must-Have Summer Songs of 2013, Part 1

We’re about one month into summer so it’s only right for the Sunset Fam to give you a dose of our favorite songs of the season so far.  We’ve compiled a list that’ll make you want to cruise to the beach with your windows down, with no worries in the world.  Here’s our top 20 must-have tracks to get you going for the rest of this lovely season.

 

1. Netherfriends – Uptown Boys

There’s not much I can say other than this jam by Netherfriends is one of the coolest songs I’ve ever heard. If I could only transport back to college and just drive around campus blasting this song with my windows rolled down. Fuck it, though, I’m just going to put my headphones on, play this song on repeat, and strut around living like it’s a summer day every day. It’s easy to dream when you’re always high. Lydia

 

2. La Plage – Rendez Vous

La Plage gives us that light, fun indie summer track we all need in our lives.  It’s dreamy and sweet like a summer treat. (Yes, I just said that with no shame.)  Alicia

 

3. Sol – Jump In

To be honest, I go back and forth on Sol. Sometimes I think his content is lacking substance. But when it comes to a summer tune, sometimes the last thing you want is heavy content. That’s part of what makes this song so perfect. It’s light, airy, and catchy as ever. music is my baby, she drive me crazy – Lydia
