Edward Sharpe and The Flaming Lips For Snow Ball Festival
First group to sign on was Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, who are coming a couple days early to ski and hang out in the mountains. The second group was local Denver band Gauntlet Hair. The last group to sign on was The Flaming Lips.
It will be the first ever Colorado plays for Twin Shadow, Miami Horror, Lord Huron, and Parisian producer Onra.
The festival is selling a festival pass/ski lift combo (as well as music only passes). The fest will take place outdoors. While the organizers admit it won't exactly be tropical temperatures outside, they believe the (very likely) snowflakes, surrounding mountains, and wintery vibes will make for a nice change from standard music festival experiences, offering something unique and distinguished for those who enjoy all seasons.
The festival is three days, with music from 2pm - 10pm, so that visitors can still have time to enjoy the Vail Valley before and after each day of music. Snow Ball will bring 10,000 people to Nottingham Park in Avon, CO, which is at the base of the Beaver Creek Ski mountain and sits next to what will be a frozen-over Nottingham Lake.
Fort Collins, Colorado pscyhedelic indie group Candy Claws has offered up their track "Snowdrift Wish" (above; feel free to post!) for those attending and wishing to attend the first inaugural Snow Ball Music Festival in Vail Valley Colorado. Enjoy this winter gem from the Two Syllable Records rarities compilation.
