So now that we’ve all returned to regular life, shaken off any remains of cold weather, and started (or failed to start) our New Years’ Resolutions, let’s recap #SnowGlobe 2018.
The music was simply phenomenal.
The after-parties hosted plenty late-night dance scenarios for music lovers of all the sorts.
The vibes, of course.
Free stuff courtesy of MTV. Lanyards, koozies, and light up toys. Everyone loves no-cost souvenirs.
The collab with Lyft. Last year, there were horror stories of post-festival Uber shortages and $200 cab rides to Stateline. Glad SnowGlobe figured this one out. They even had hot chocolate for anyone waiting on their ride. Nice!
Above & Beyond is worth a mention for the glacial countdown to 2019.
What Didn’t Work:
The Igloo or the House Tent – this stage was at maximum capacity throughout all three days. It will need to expand in the coming years if they’re serious about this whole festival thing…
Despite heading over to the Igloo early to find a good spot for Phantoms, dancing room became a competitive personal bubble battle. Some people had to go – and I willingly left. Despite my commitment to House music, it was Just a Feeling… wish it could be more…
Lastly, an almost unbearable, 9-degree NYE countdown – BUT – we signed up for this, we knew we were coming to Lake Tahoe. We certainly saw the weather in advance. It’s not something worth complaining about. It just feels a lot colder than it really is.
Overall, I’d go back in a heartbeat. Until next year, #SnowGlobe…
