Winter sport and music festival MINUS ZERO is returning in 2018 for its biggest event yet. For its fourth edition, the festival has announced it will be housed at a new location Mount Snow, Vermont on April 7 & 8 and will also feature opening festivities and kick off parties starting on the evening of Friday, April 6. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, November 15 at 10 AM EST.
At its new home at Mount Snow (which is also my ‘homefield' mountain as i'm a HUGE snowboarder)–it's no stranger to large scale events as it was the site for the inaugural X-Games–MINUS ZERO attendees will have access to a larger festival main stage with more views, an indoor heated stage, art installations, more bars and drink stations. There will also be more music areas than before with multiple stages including a club venue.
Other amenities Mount Snow will provide for MINUS ZERO festival goers includes access to over 5000 hotel rooms in the area with free shuttle buses provided to and from the festival in the Minus Zero Hotel network, indoor and outdoor pools, a wide variety of food and craft vendors and, of course, a multitude of winter sport options with access to 20 lifts and 87 trails. Plus, Mount Snow–located in Southern Vermont and home of Carinthia Parks, known for its premier terrain for snowboarding and skiing–is just a few short hours from New York, Boston and other major northeast area cities.
Last year, a sold-out crowd of thousands hit the slopes and partied at MINUS ZERO, which featured over three stages of music featuring over 50 top international and emerging electronic music acts including Bassnectar, Zeds Dead, GRiZ, Illenium and Claptone, snowboarding with a Rail Jam & Jump competition and a demo from some of the top pro-boarders including Carinthia Team athletes Nate Haust and Jeremy Ellenberg.
