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!
Stretch appropriately for B’s brand of smooth, melodic trap.
Their falsetto makes all the girls soon.
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.
A wildcard in a fest lined with EDM artists, but don’t sleep on this hip-hop duo. This will be a party.
Phantogram’s bouncy production and seductive vocals will have you feeling some type of way.
Last week I posted a list of songs that help keep things in perspective when you feel life is moving too fast. Today, I’m on a completely different path (fueled mostly by these songs that put me into this mood) and want to share with all of you the most upbeat songs the Internet has offered me over the past couple days. Play this music through good headphones or a good speaker system. The music is 99% guaranteed to bring you to life. And no, this doesn’t mean it’s all heartless dance music – this music has soul, but the nature of the instrumentals is uplifting. Full tracklist after the jump.
