#SnowGlobe 2018 Recap

Festivals

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.

What Worked:

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.

Highlights…

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.

1/3 SOBxRBE by Deanna Boutte @c4lif0rni4gr0wn

Overall, I’d go back in a heartbeat. Until next year, #SnowGlobe…

In case you missed the #SnowGlobeSpotlightSet on @avibecalledwest, here is a playlist you can listen to anytime. Enjoy.

Are You Ready For #SnowGlobe2018?

Festivals

Is Christmas finally over? We can start talking (hyperventilating) about SnowGlobe now? No need to mention the lineup – you’ve seen it by now.

If not….

SGxMTV_Final

Top 5 Sets Not To Miss:

RL Grime on Sunday – He is only performing at a select few cities in the U.S. this year and South Lake Tahoe is one of them. His latest album, Nova, which is in Electronic Roatation at KSJS features a hand full of Hip-Hop and R&B artists that I just can’t get over. UCLA ft. 24 Hours is on repeat.

Shoreline Mafia on Monday – Everyone thinks they’re from the Bay, so you can only guess why I like them so much. Shoreline Mafia has been a KSJS collectors’ item for some time now with several songs previously in Urban rotation. And with quite a few collabs with SOBxRBE (who are scheduled to perform just a few hours later on the same day), one can only hope for a cameo – just throwing that into the universe

Gorgon City on Monday – Can we just stop to smell the House Music right quick? Currently in KSJS Electronic rotation is this duo, who recently released a gem, Escape. Seeing them live in October overwhelmed me with happy vibes, especially since they played my favorite song twice hence the need to not miss this one.

NGHTMRE B2B SLANDER on Monday – Okay… rave round two, anybody? About a billion people went to NGHTMRE Before Christmas in The City two weeks ago and although we didn’t see SLANDER, that didn’t stop the Gud Vibrations from flowing.

Duckwrth on Saturday – Yes! Just yes! There is no better feeling than seeing an artist you’ve supported for years move through the underground world as effortlessly as Duckwrth. Almost every song he drops ends up in KSJS Urban rotation – like SOPRANO and FALL BACK to name a few. What’s even better, he genuinely supports our support.

It’s worth a mention that GoldLink just got added to the lineup. Bay Area attendees will be excited since he missed Outside Lands this past August. We’ve got a few Dirtybird Players in the mix, plus a “secret set” scheduled for Saturday

Now, let’s discuss these afterparties…

There’s plenty to do after the festival (after all, it ends at 10 PM on Saturday and Sunday) but since we can’t be everywhere at once, I’ve narrowed down the choices for you.

Brownies & Lemonade is taking over the Sierra Stage all day on Saturday, but they’re also hosting the first official afterparty at Mont Bleu. All we know is “secret guests all night long” and casinos don’t close ‘til the sun comes up.

Sunday night will be one to remember. Mont Bleu is also hosting Walker & Royce with Phantoms – which sounds like a match made in House Music heaven. All I can say is get your trap thighs warmed up – this is what we call a “house party”.

Get tickets here.

A few things to remember:

  • Make sure to download the SnowGlobe app for iPhone or Android so you can plan out set times with your friends and get the latest updates
  • DON’T YOU DARE LITTER
  • Dress warm and in layers. It will drop below freezing temperatures at night. You are allowed a bag or backpack so it wouldn’t hurt to throw an extra jacket, gloves, scarf, or hat inside. Regardless of the weather, WATERPROOF BOOTS are a must!
  • Read up on the allowed and not allowed items
  • Parking will be a hassle – plan for it. There are several options including a shuttle and limited off-site parking. Local businesses and communities will be monitoring street/neighborhood parking so be warned
  • Tune in to 90.5 FM KSJS on Thursday, 12/27/2018 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM for a very special #SnowGlobeSpotlight playlist curated by DEBO. Live stream: www.ksjs.org/listen

5 Reasons @NNMFestival Tops All Other Nor-Cal Festivals

Festivals

For some people, a festival is just another festival is just another festival. But in anticipation for Northern Nights, many of my close friends boasted about how “Northern Nights is the best festival” and for some, even their “favorite” festival. I was skeptical – I go to a lot of festivals – how could this one be so great?

Well. Okay – now I see…

The Location – there is a weird geographic anomaly about Piercy, CA.  Locals say there are some places where water runs upstream, gravity is “stronger,” and supposedly, a compass will flutter heavily at true North due to an overwhelming magnetic force surrounding this area.  Not sure if any of this is true, but once you arrive at Cook’s Valley Campground at the Mendocino – Humboldt County line, you can certainly feel a sense of belonging. The grounds are beautiful. The trees are so majestic that if you look up at the tallest branches, you can basically travel through time.  The overall sense of welcoming was incandescent.

The River – the river was probably my favorite aspect of the entire weekend – partly because it was almost 100 degrees and it kept most of us from dying of heat – but also partly because it was a fun-festival-sea-of-floaties. I saw everything from swans, peacocks, and flamingos to donuts and popsicles. As a matter of fact, an entire group of friends each had a single slice of pizza to form one large pepperoni pizza (squad goals AF). Huge unicorn islands dominated the river, while rafts with built-in canopies and coolers floated by too. A river dragon made its way through smaller floats which made way for the gigantic rubber ducky. An incredible sight for sure. The river stage was strategically placed right along the riverbed so you could hear the music while you lay there chillin’… What other festivals even offer that?

The People – there were soooooo maaaaaaany peopleeeee. Organizers say this was the largest crowd EVER. It was insane the number of festivalers who attended this thing. And to be honest, I recognized a lot of faces (and totems) from previous festivals this summer, but everyone’s squad seemed to be bigger than before – including mine. The whole weekend, everyone I met was so extremely kind. Neighbors peaked into our camp to say “hi” and introduce themselves. People passing by stopped to compliment our setup. Some of my crew came all the way from Tahoe and attracted other Tahomies. Someone let me take over our camp’s aux so while I was blasting Mac Dre, pretty girls stopped to get a little hyphy. Even people working the festival made a lasting impression. From the guy who guided us to our camping spot (and then was so patient and flexible when we asked to move a few spaces over) to the lovely lady who took her smoke break at our camp in the shade after picking up trash all day in the scorching heat.  Yes – the people. You will NOT find these genuine people at any other festival.

The Vibes – needless to say, with the environment and the people on level 100, the vibes were beyond outstanding. Obviously, the music speaks for itself (no need to include how great it was – you saw the lineup!) There was yoga, a forest full of hammocks (perfect for mid-day naps), a cannabis area, a silent disco, art galleries, and tons of things to spend money on: vendors, plenty of food options, and a general store stocked with everything you forgot. I’m not sure what consumes one’s soul when going to Northern Nights, but even the shyest people seem to have the courage to come up and tell you how beautiful you are.  Sometimes you just need that kind of energy and Northern Nights was just that. The vibes at the Bunker Stage were the strongest. I saw the sun set and rise from various spots at the Bunker. Weird-5am-shenanigans took place there, but during that time in space, it was anything but weird.

A New Family – so many crews linked up for this. I had my crew (who started festival season off at Serenity Gathering and kept screaming “Serenity Day 91” all weekend), my crew had their LIB and Buku crews, those crews had their friends. My friends ended up knowing their friends. My SnowGlobe squad reassembled… Never in my entire festival-going experience had I ever been in one place with so many loving people. Like it was impossible to get lost when everyone knew where to return you. I went with about 25 friends, I left with about 25 more, and I gained about a million new memories.

All music aside – now I see why everyone claims this to be the “best” festival ever. And while some of us are still not unpacked, still a little sunburnt, our voices barely returning – we so anxiously await next summer when we return to do it all over again at the 7th Annual Northern Nights Music Festival in 2019. See you all on the river (or at Bunker). Peace out, festie fam.
