SnowGlobe 2016 Recap

This past new years weekend the LGNDVRY team got the chance to experience the unique music festival in South Lake Tahoe. Here is how the weekend went down for the LGNDVRY team.

Day 1

We started our day at the Sierra stage where Madds was setting the tone for the weekend with her face melting set. The crowd lost it when she dropped a dope remix of “Keep It 100“. After we caught the opening set we headed to “The Igloo” to take in the vibes of That Sound. That Sound were the first group to perform at The Igloo and theygot everyone in that building jumping and moving. Once we were done there we made our way to the main stage to watch Vincent

Shortly after Vincent finished his set it was time for RL Grime’s amazing performance. RL Grime started of his set by dropping his latest single “Waiting“; when the song dropped the crowd lost it. RL killed it like usual and did his thing on stage.

At this time it was The Chainsmokers turn to take the stage. The dynamic duo that took over 2016 started their set off with a Closer mash up to Riot Ten & Sullivan King’sFuck It“; at the moment I knew The Chainsmokers weren’t playing around. Their pairing of tracks and pyro is why they’re a group you don’t want to miss when they’re in a city near you. Once they were done melting out faces; they graced the crowd with their chart toppers like “Closer“, “Don’t Let Me Down“, and “All We Know“. It was now Lil Yachty’s turn to take the Sierra stage and turn the crowd up. He played his usual hits that has make him a popular figure in the hip hop scene.

Closing out the Main Stage on day one was Flume. It seemed that this was the place to be seeing that the crowd was back up as far as the eye could see. Flume closed out the first day the right with with his mellow set list that got everyone in the mood. Snails closed out day one the right way,  and turned the Sierra stage into on massive mosh pit with his signature “vomit step” sound.

Day 2

Starting out day two I knew we couldn’t miss Joyzu’s set. Joyzu were the local guys that have always dreamed of the day they’d be playing at SnowGlobe. On day 2 that dream was made a reality. If you were in the crowd you could feel the love and energy of friends and family that came out to show support for the duo. Joyzu bless the crowd with their singles “Like A Melody” and “Her You Say“. We even got the chance to hear their lastest single “Running” a few weeks before it’s release.

We started to get hungry so we went to the food court to see what SnowGlobe had to offer our tastebuds. Once we got recharged, we found ourselves back at the Main Stage to watch Echos performance. With the mix of vocals and live mixing, this was a performance that I really enjoyed. Throughout the reset of the day we jumped back and forth from all 3 stages catching performances from Landis Lapace, Basstracks, Lido, The Knocks, and Masha.

The time is now 7:10 PM, so this means it’s time for Big Gigantic to take the stage with the large production. They played all of their hits and had an amazing performance. It seemed like everyone at SnowGlobe was at the Main Stage, but it was for good reason not only was Big Gigantic putting on an unforgettable set, but it was almost time for Major Lazer to take the stage.

Major Lazer started their set with a classic track “Pon De Floor” that was  mixed with Wiwek’sRiot“. While Major Lazer started their performance they started throwing and handing out Major Lazer branded products, and if you were lucky enough you would have caught a tote back, t-shirt, or whistles. The group showed us all why they are one of the biggest names in the industry.

Day 3

The last and final day was the coldest day by far, with the temperature going as low as 15 degrees. Elohim started the day off at the main stage with her groovy and unique style of music. We had to run over to the Sierra stage to catch Azizi Gibson tear it up. By this time it was now D.R.A.M’s time to shine. He performed a gang of songs of his latest album such as, “Cash Machine“, “CHA CHA” and of course the smash hit “Broccoli“. The rest of the day we found ourselves jumping back and forth between the different performances from Creams and Lotions, Point Point, Mr. Carmack, and  Classixx.

Being that the LGNDVRY team grew up on Bay Area music, it was only right that we were front and center for the Snow Sessions with Traxamillion. During the intermission of Snow Sessions we caught some of the high flying action of the snowboarders and skiers that were doing tricks off the snow ramp they had on the right side of the Main Stage.

For most of the night we spent our time at the Main Stage to catch the performances of Baauer and Rüfüs Du Sol. After those two sets we walked over to catch one the of people we have been following for some time now and that was Illenium. He absolutely murdered his set and and the crowd rocking. From the vantage point that I was standing from, I could see how interactive the crowd was to Illenium’s set.

It was now time for Odesza’s set and the word throughout the weekend was that this was a performance that you didn’t want to miss. So we took that advice and made sure we got a good spot to catch this set. As the new year grew closer and closer it was time for the ball to drop. They dropped their remix of Hayden James’ “Something About You” as the New Year was being rung in. Needless to say the pairing of the that track and the ball dropping was definitely a mood setting moment if you were with that special someone. After the ball dropped, they brought out their trademark drum line and played a few songs with them.

So if you find yourself looking for something to do during your New Year weekend the LGNDVRY team highly recommend taking advantage of the uniqueness that is SnowGlobe. We want the thank the SnowGlobe team for taking care of us over the 3 days that we spent up in the snow. Below are some of the highlighted photos taken during the festival.
