Snowball Festival 2012 will feature TV on the Radio, Rusko, more

The Snowball Music Festival, conveniently located next to prime skiing / snowboarding action in Vail Valley, CO, has announced its initial lineup for 2012: Rusko, Bassnectar, Big Boi and Major Lazer corner the dance headliners, with some good old rock balance from TV on the Radio, Deer Tick, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and The Head and the Heart.

The festival goes down March 2-4, 2012, with tickets starting at $149.50 for a 3-day festival pass, or $1150-$1900 for lodging packages (tickets included). A portion of the charges benefit one of three charities (your choice at checkout): Roundup River RanchAll Hand Volunteers, or the Eagle River Youth Coalition.

They continue to announce two performers per day on their Facebook page.
