SnowGlobe Music Festival announced for South Lake
October 28, 2011
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – It looks like visitors to South Lake Tahoe and residents will finally have something to do on New Years Eve, rather than wander aimlessly on Highway 50.
“This is part of the city’s new initiative to attract big events,” said city spokeswoman Nancy Kerry.
SnowGlobe Music Festival will be in town Dec. 29 through Dec. 31 on the Lake Tahoe Community College soccer field. Up to 10,000 people are expected to attend the event.
The festival has been considered for South Lake Tahoe for some time. Last year, Kerry visited Avon, CO’s SnowBall Music Festival, the sister event to SnowGlobe, to see exactly how the event works.
“It was very successful, so we asked them to bring it here,” Kerry said, noting that every hotel in the small Colorado town sold out.
The three-day festival will offer three main stages and over forty five world-class musicians, according to a statement released Friday. Musicians will likely play from 2 p.m. to around 10 p.m. each day, Kerry said.
