This weekend: SnowBall Music Festival returns to the Vail Valley

Last year’s SnowBall Music Festival was the first of its kind — not just for being a full-scale music festival during the snowy Colorado winter, but for offering an eclectic lineup that bridged the gap between indie-rock and dubstep.

This year’s festival, which begins today and continues through Sunday night at Nottingham Park in Avon, Colo., offers an even more diverse crop of acts. We have a writer and photographer on the scene who will bring you a full recap of the weekend come Monday morning, but, in the meantime, check out our highlighted picks for each day after the jump.
