T he music festival SnowBall claimed its fame by bringing a ridiculous lineup of artists to perform in the mountain towns of Vail and Winter Park. Now the event has moved to a new home right in the heart of Denver, Colorado. The festival will be turning The Park at Mile High at Sports Authority Field into a winter wonderland taking place over the weekend of April 4th – 6th.
The lineup had to be strong to coincide with the move, but they have delivered. Bringing in some of Colorado's heroes Pretty Lights, GRiZ and the Pretty Lights Music cast begins to set the tone just right. Then mix in some great DJs, live bands and rappers and this sounds like a party no one can miss out on. Featuring acts Knife Party, Kill the Noise, MK, Earl Sweatshirt, Busta Rhymes, Yeasayer, Clockwork, Thomas Jack, Henry Fong, Trippy Turtle, The Floozies, Lunice, Brother Ali, Twin Shadow, MiMOSA, Kap Slap and so many more. See the Full Lineup After the Jump Below. And there are a few 3-day passes for $129.95 (or $299.95 for VIP) you can grab while still available here. Stay tuned with us and SnowBall for any lineup additions, late night parties and more info!

Whoaa… When GRiZ and Gramatik team up for their side project Grizmatik, incredible things happen. Today we get the preview of their latest massive single “My People”. We got the first taste with their Digital Liberation Is Mad Freedom complete with music video, and this track might top it. They fuse funk, soul, and gritty bass unlike any artists I have heard. These two teaming up is an insane combination. you can hear both artists shine through heavily. Even though this is just a sample, you can tell it’s gonna be quite the anthem. Can’t wait for the release.
Also don’t miss their main stage performance at this year’s SnowBall Music Festival in Winter Park this weekend March 8th – 10th. Enjoy.
