The SnowBall Music Festival is a music festival held annually in Winter Park, CO. The first edition occurred from March 2–4, 2011, near to Vail in the city of Avon, CO. The three-day-long event consisted of back to back performances played across three outside stages. Headliners included: Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, and Flaming Lips. The organisers claimed that the festival incorporated the "ultimate marriage: mountains and music."[1] Some participants have compared Snowball to Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, giving it the nickname Snowchella.[citation needed]

The festival’s winter setting allows attendees to experience Vail and Beaver Creek Resorts during the day prior to attending the music festival.

In 2013, the festival moved location from its original location in Avon to Winter Park. The 3rd edition of the festival took place March 8–10.[2]

Outreach[edit]

Organizers of Snow Ball decided to have an event not only centered around music, but a bigger cause as well. They partnered with the non-profit organization, The Realm of Caring,[3] to raise money to help fund the education of music in elementary schools.[citation needed] For the 2013 festival, a limited edition t-shirt (featuring the festival's unofficial moose mascot) was sold with a portion of the profits benefiting Pencils of Promise—a non-profit organization that builds schools and increases educational opportunities in the developing world.[4]
