A Look Back At SnowGlobe: Day 1
A Look Back At SnowGlobe: Day 2
After two full days of raging, there was still yet another night to conquer. Day three was the long awaited close of 2011. As we celebrated the final hours of 2011, we were overtaken by another round of dance music excellence. Yes, I’m sure that there were many New Years celebrations that were fun and exciting, however, SnowGlobe was the definite front runner in terms of its unique location and bass concentrated line up. SnowGlobe gave us the chance to ring in the New Years in snow bass style. Unfortunately, there was little snow to actually mess around with.
To start off the night in perfect fashion, Emancipator took over the mainstage and transformed the crowd into a vibrant worship of mesmerizing downtempo music. Emancipator performed an incredibly fluid hour of their most classic tunes, including their latest track, Elephant Survival. They were the perfect way to kick SnowGlobe into party gear after two previously exhausting days of revelry.
Emancipator – Elephant Survival
After Emancipator finished up rocking the main stage it was off to catch the young funk house sensation. Plastic Plates brought out house tunes with some serious funk. He kept the dance party alive and ready to take on the rest of the night. Plastic Plates was the perfect way to transition into a more energized New Year celebration. If you’ve never caught listen to a Plastic Plates track, get ready to bust out the dance moves.

Post Plastic Plates, we headed to the Igloo to catch the rest of Samples, who had put together an entertaining set filled with some good filthy yet catchy dubstep tunes. Samples later transitioned into Phutureprimitive, who, to be honest, didn’t appeal much to my tastes. People were definitely loving it, don’t get me wrong, I just felt a bit of personal animosity towards his bland set. Maybe I was just too excited for the ultra filthy drumstep that Figure was about to unleash. Regardless, Figure definitely made up for the subtle lack of enthusiasm I felt just beforehand. Figure took to the stage, with a similar mission as Datsik on day one, to obliterate everyone with filth. Needless to say, he accomplished the mission with style and necessary pre-New Year aggression.
Figure – The Werewolf (Original Mix)
The Glitch Mob was schedule to ring in the New Year immediately following Figure’s set, however, I had felt so utterly destroyed by Figure, that it seemed pointless to end the festival on any other note. In fact, according to the people I spoke to afterwards, it turned out to be quite the clutch decision.
When all was said and done, SnowGlobe went above and beyond expectations and has solidified itself as a must attend festival for future years. I, myself, am looking forward to next year.
