Set in the pretty campus of the Lake Tahoe Community College, SnowGlobe promises to be an unusual experience. Spanning from a couple days after Christmas to New Year's, organisers have taken advantage of a time most people take off work, to capitalise on the holiday spirit. Although the festival has been going on for only three years, those running the festival have managed to book consistently impressive line ups.
