As 2016 winds down, festival goers are making plans for their final show of the year in search of a memorable way to kick off the New Year. Lineups are being released nation-wide, but only one literally made my jaw drop in astonishment. Ladies and gents – I give you: SNOWTA!
On December 31st at the Minneapolis Convention Center, you can kick off your new year to the sounds of Beak Nasty, Infected Mushroom’s DJ set, Waka Flocka Flame, Squnto, Bogtrotter, Hippie Sabotage, Big Gigantic, and Tipper—one of my favorite producers of all time—who is closing out the night.
I recently witnessed Squnto and his octo-drop at Nightmare Music Festival, and let me tell you, it is something you must experience if you’re a fan of that filthy dub. Minneapolis native Bogtrotter is another artist that you cannot miss (along with Big G, Infected Mushroom, and Tipper of course). His style of music blends perfectly with the rest of the experimental, downtempo artists on the lineup.
Tickets are now on sale at www.snowtanye.com. Even if 2016 wasn’t a spectacular year, with a lineup like this, the only thing you’ll remember is how awesome of a time you had starting off 2017 full of hope and New Year’s resolutions that you’ll ‘eventually’ get to .
