Now in its third year, SnowBall Music Festival continues to combine two lovely features: music and mountains. What more could you ask for? (Maybe a space heater?) The festival, which will take place March 8th-10th in Winter Park, CO, (aka The Rocky Mountains) offers tents, as well as outdoor stages. As with The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, mountains are an integral feature of the festival and fans are alternately able to revel in the natural beauty of their surroundings, as well as the synthetic aesthetic of strobe lights. The lineup offers a wide range of genres and musicians – this year, look forward to Compton’s hottest new rapper Kendrick Lamar as well as festival favorites Pretty Lights.

In case the name and location left any question, the festival’s website explicitly warns concert-goers: “It will be COLD! We recommend that you come prepared for snow and winter conditions. Temperatures are expected to be in the low 30 degree range during the day and in the teens at night. Please dress accordingly!” So throw on your thermals, knit some mittens and hit the mountains for one of the coldest festivals the US has to offer.
