Primarily a mix of EDM and hip-hop, the second-annual, 55-act Snowta NYE is headlined by British Columbia dubstep mainstay Excision, performing on his innovative custom stage “the Paradox,” and Pretty Lights Live, the full band of Colorado producer Pretty Lights. On the rap side, the biggest names are Atlanta trap god Gucci Mane, who’s fully rebounded from his 2013-16 prison term, and Dallas sing-rapper Post Malone, fresh off the success of his No. 1 hit “Rockstar.” Local hip-hop will be well represented, too, with performances by Minneapolis wildman Prof, ex-Gophers hoops star Mac Irv, versatile 2017 Picked to Click finalist Dwynell Roland, and others. All in all, Snowta should live up to its billing as “the Midwest’s largest indoor music festival” and deliver all the excitement that implies. Tickets and more info at
