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.

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.
Grizmatik – My People | Preview
It already been announced that the massive 3 day long Colorado snow music festival SnowBall had relocated from the Vail area to Winter Park for 2013. The festival has always had one of the freshest most diverse lineups not just in Colorado but on the West coast. They have consistently had a great blend of the hottest new electronic, live band, and hip-hop acts all at the same festival to enjoy while freezing your ass off. Well now for the big switch of locations, this lineup completely makes up for the move. The headliners include past attendee Colorado electronic icon Pretty Lights who knows how to shut a festival down. STS9 makes their highly anticipated debut Snow festival appearance which is sure to be one to remember. Rowdytown headliner, fellow Colorado Native Big Gigantic are set to unleash their new stage setup. The man bringing real hip-hop back to American mainstream… Kendrick Lamar. One of our favorite rising Electro stars Porter Robinson is set to have a epic headlining performance. Datsik will probably drop bass louder then you have ever heard.. literally. Flying Lotus is one of the most intelligent producers and will take you too another world with his future sounding productions. The collaboration project between GRiZ and Gramatik aka Grizmatik will be performing their first official festival performance with live production. And those are only the headliners playing the festival, look above / below at the rest of the jaw dropping lineup. These are more then enough reason to rage in the freezing snow for 3 days for an unforgettable weekend filled with snow and music. Hope to see everyone out in the snow this year!

SnowBall Music Festival, the festival that had it’s first year in 2011, not during the typical summer festival months.. but in the heart of the winte, in Vail, Colorado. The festival that went against the odds and brought hitting the mountains and seeing some of your favorites acts like Pretty Lights, Snoop Dogg, Bassnectar, The Flaming Lips, Big Gigantic, Diplo, Major Lazer, Edward Sharpe, Dada Life, and so many other acts into the snow into the same weekend. Well Vail wasn’t too happy afte the second year and apparently couldn’t handle the party.. the question on everyone in Colorado’s mind was “Where next?”
Well now we have the answer, SnowBall Festival 2013 will be taking over Winter Park this year over the weekend of March 8th, 9th, and 10th. This is sure to be another amazing weekend filled with hitting the mountains in the morning and raging to some of the best live music for 3 days straight. Not a weekend to miss. We are going to be working wit SnowBall again this year, so expect to hear about that in the coming months!
SnowBall Music Festival 2012 Official Mixtape : 20 Song Mixtape Featuring Exclusive Downloads from Bassnectar, Gramatik, Mimosa, Griz and more!Posted in Bangin, Mix / Playlist, Mixtapes / Albums by nick | Tags: Bassnectar, Break Science, Dubstep, Electronic, Festival, Gramatik, Griz, Mimosa, Mixtape, Snowball, Two Fresh
I’ve been waiting to bring you this one for awhile now. This weekend is the SnowBall Music Festival 2012 and today I’ve got the official mixtape brought to you by Thissongissick. So most of you probably know about the festival SnowBall featuring names like Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, and The Flaming Lips, which started in Vail, Colorado and expanded to SnowGlobe in Lake Tahoe, California, and SnowMont in Killington, Vermont. Last year we put together a sick mixtape which got tons of love.
Today we continue the tradition with 20 amazing songs from artists playing the festival like Bassnectar, Major Lazer, Gramatik, Dillon Francis, Mimosa, Nit Grit, Two Fresh, Griz, and the list goes on and on. We tried to create a mixtape that highlighted the heavy bass crushing acts, to the more soulful live acts, and everything in between. SnowBall is a great balanced festival, with enough electronic to tide you over, and I really feel we did a great job at highlighting that. Enjoy all of these unreleased tracks, exclusive downloads on songs that have been purchase only, and more. We really hope you take the time to listen to every track. Enjoy!
Also for everyone at the festival, be sure to stop by the SnowBall merch tent to pick up a new TSIS shirt or crewneck!
