SnowGlobe, a music festival taking place in the gorgeous setting of Lake Tahoe, California is set to return for its 4th year. This year is easily going to be the biggest year the festival will have seen to date, largely thanks to the unreal lineup they have curated.
From headliners Skrillex, Flume, Disclosure (DJ Set), Porter Robinson (Live) and Zedd, to the top level acts like legendary underground hip-hop duo Atmosphere and DJs Flux Pavilion and Odesza help set the tone of the festival. Live acts Phantogram, Cherub, Emancipator Ensemble and The Floozies will help to mix things up while Bro Safari, Justin Martin, Thomas Jack, Trippy Turtle, Branchez, Djemba Djemba, Party Favor, Le Youth, J. Philp and Slaptop will help keep the DJ presence high.
This will be commencing over the December 29th – 31st weekend, and from attending years pasts, this is not one you should miss out on. Tickets for the weekend just went on sale and are available for purchase via SnowGlobe's website now.
Zedd is set to release his sophomore studio album with a projected release date being early 2015.
Grammy-winning German house producer Zedd certainly has the skills to balance numerous successful radio hits while also turning out countless house tracks that have become festival anthems. His debut album Clarity saw huge acclaim with "Clarity" and "Break Free" both charting across the globe and also managed to catapult the artist into a league of extraordinary top acts.
Zedd recently announced via Billboard that his sophomore studio album release is heavily underway and should be wrapped up by early 2015. He also mentioned dropping a single or two in the next 6 months
He is in converstaions with Hayle Williams (Of Paramore) about a followup collaboration to the highly succesful "Stay The Night", which would be on the album. Zedd unveiled his active plans to work with both Muse and Silverchair, two bands that "really inspired" Zedd; yet those names are just on the wishlist currently. Zedd also mentions that most of the album is written and it's just now about producing all the tracks to where he sees fit.
Zedd also states that his hearing has returned fully and was nothing serious. Just needed to catch up on some much needed sleep.
"It’s hard to find time to sit down and focus on it. I’ve written most of the songs but the production process is long for me – making them sound the way I want them to sound, finding the right vocalists, and so on." - Zedd
