VAIL VALLEY, CO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — After a first year that boasted the likes of The Flaming Lips, Pretty Lights, Twin Shadow and Local Natives, SnowBall Music Festival will return to Vail Valley for three days this March for another year of extreme music, winter sports and fun.
New additions to the lineup include performances by Snoop Dogg, The Kooks, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, Gardens & Villa, Ghostland Observatory, Pictureplane, Dada Life, Mimosa, Princeton, and DallasK among others.
They will join previously announced acts like TV on the Radio, Rusko, Head and the Heart, Bassnectar, Big Boi, Deer Tick, Major Lazer, Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Cassian, Gauntlet Hair, Small Black, Los Amigos Invisibles, Dillon Francis, Big Freedia, Tribes, Plastic Plates, Trampled By Turtles, Thundercat Figure and My Goodness.
Going into its sophomore year, the SnowBall Music Festival proposes the ultimate marriage of music and mountains from March 2-4. In addition to the musical line-up festival goers can hit the slopes to ski and snowboard.
In April, following the success of their inaugural event, SnowBall organizers released a number of advance 3-day passes for the 2012 festival, which promptly sold out in under six hours.
Past SnowBall performers include: The Flaming Lips, Local Natives, Twin Shadow, Lord Huron, Pretty Lights, Miami Horror and Candy Claws among others.
