Some say Snoe.down started at Sugarloaf in Carrabassett, Maine in 2002 with a pair of performances by moe. on a particularly frigid weekend. The “official” Snoe.down festival began in March, 2006 in picturesque and historic Lake Placid, New York. moe. performed for two nights in the Olympic Center’s famed USA Rink (home of the “Miracle on Ice”) as well as an outdoor afternoon set before more than 3,000 ecstatic fans at nearby Whiteface Mountain. The band repeated the event the following year, adding Disco Biscuits, Brazilian Girls, Little Feat, Tea Leaf Green and the Slip among many others.
We love music festivals as much as you do. Music Festival Junkies is dedicated to covering the scene, the experience, and the music with news, lineups, reviews, and commentary. See you this summer somewhere down the gypsy road.
