#SnowGlobe 2018 Recap


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.

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?


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….


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
  • 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
