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.


Snowy. Despite it being in California, South Lake Tahoe is a Ski resort. The temperatures can hit below 0 Fahrenheit (less than-10 C). The upside to this is a special atmosphere that is hard to replicate. As long as you dress warm, dancing all night will keep you nice and cosy.

Line up

The 2013 line up includes: Tiesto, Snoop Dogg, Kaskade and Grammatik as well as many more.


Basic tickets that grant general admission to the festival have three price tiers according to how early you buy them: early bird tickets sold out for $134. Advance tickets go for $149, and General Admission for $164, so buy your tickets early to get the best deal possible!


VIP come in two types: normal VIP and Golden tickets. VIP tickets sell for $299 as early bird tickets or $349 after the 1st of November. VIP tickets grant you access to: the shuttle bus, express entry, a special viewing platform, and VIP lounge and bar.

Golden tickets sell for $599 and include everything that normal VIP tickets include, as well as an open bar and a special enclosed and heated bar.


SnowGlobe runs a shuttle that takes festival goers to and from a location near the main accommodations in South Lake Tahoe to the festival. The shuttle costs $25.
