SnowMont s’no more


For those of you who don’t know – and have not already cried your eyes out – the SnowMont festival in Killington, Vt. has officially been canceled. 

Just a few weeks ago, some students were eager with excitement over the too-good-to-be-true, fully packed line up of the three-day music festival.

On March 14, the SnowMont Facebook team updated its status with news of the event’s cancelation. 

“It is with heavy regret we announced today that the SnowMont Music Festival has been canceled indefinitely due to the event’s lack of demand,” the status stated. “As the visionaries of this event, we can assure you that we are just as disappointed to tell you this news as you are to hear it, and we thoroughly sympathize with your disappointment.”

Although full refunds are being provided for those who had already purchased tickets, fans are losing the chance to see acts such as Kaskade, Snoop Dog, Slightly Stoopid, Lotus, Chromeo and Grammatik.

“I was just so excited to see so many of my favorite artists in my absolute favorite state with all of my best friends, and now I’m just heartbroken,” sophomore Alanna Brahms said.

Fortunately, there are other options for the same weekend that may not leave fans disappointed.

On March 31 in New London, Conn., DRK Productions will be hosting April Ghouls 2.

April Ghouls 2 will be held at the Polish Club of Connecticut to celebrate the anniversary of April Ghouls 1, which was the first DRK show held in Burlington just one year ago.

Burlington DJs Insight and Palmtrixx, as well as other DRK DJs, will be playing an assortment of EDM genres like Trace, UK Hardcore, Electro House, Drum and Bass, Dupstep and Moomba to keep the crowd dancing until they forget that SnowMont was ever a possibility.

Students are encouraged to take their SnowMont refunds and buy their $9 tickets to April Ghouls 2.
