SnowBall Music Festival
I want to start by emphasizing the importance of keeping an open mind always, but especially when listening to and choosing live music to see. Throughout all of my years of seeing a lot of live music, I have always listened before I judged, and it has afforded me the ability to discover bands and performers that I would have never known about. On the other hand, I know countless people that either stereotype, pigeon hole themselves, or scan lineups and then comment as if they have already attended the event.

In its first two years, the Colorado-based SnowBall Music Festival established a reputation as one of America's most unique and exciting events. A music festival and ski/snowboard weekend rolled into one, SnowBall is the ultimate winter getaway for music fans, tastemakers and adventure-seekers, who'll converge on the majestic mountain paradise of Winter Park, Colorado on March 8-10, 2013 to absorb SnowBall's visionary marriage of music and mountains.
Summer is music festival season. Plain and simple. It’s the easiest time to travel to whatever destination and have the assurance that you will be comfortable and satisfied with variable weather conditions. July festivals do have their pitfalls on that end though, with scorching temperatures and fields filled with thousands of festival-goers, sometimes the dead of summer multi-day musical festivals can be exhausting and problematic to those who are more about the music and less about sunscreen and lugging camping gear around.
