SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — American DJ and producer Kaskade has been added to the lineup for this year’s SnowGlobe Music Festival, which takes place Dec. 29-31 in South Lake Tahoe.
The fifth annual festival, which announced its full-blown lineup last week, focuses mainly on electronic dance music but also includes dance bands and hip-hop artists.
This year’s festival includes the return of Skrillex, who will perform as Jack Ü, with producer Diplo, following a solo headlining slot at last year’s festival.
Dillion Francis, Chet Faker and Eric Prydz fill out the top of SnowGlobe’s lineup. Also on the bill are Ghostland Observatory, Duke Dumont, Claude Von Stroke, Cashmere Cat, Galantis, What So Not, E-40 and Cut Copy playing a DJ set, among others.
Kaskade was nominated for two Grammy Awards in 2013, Best Dance Recording for the song “Atmosphere” and Best Dance/Electronica Album for the “Atmopshere” album. In 2014, after Kaskade raked in a reported $17 million, Forbes magazine ranked him the eighth highest-paid DJ in the world.
SnowGlobe also features live painting, fireworks shows, live “Big Air” snowboarding and skiing demos and 13,000 square feet of heated enclosed spaces.
The festival takes place at the play fields next to Lake Tahoe Community College.
Three-day admission starts at $189. During a phone interview last month, event producer Chad Donnelly said he expects this year’s festival to sell out prior to the event.
