Veteran jam band favorites moe. have finalized plans for their annual “Snoe.down” festival. The all-ages winter music and sports festival will return to central Vermont this month. Scheduled for the weekend of March 21 through 24, the festival will take place at Killington Resort in Killington and neighboring Spartan Arena in neighboring Rutland.

moe. will headline both Friday and Saturday nights at Spartan Arena. New Orleans funk band Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk will open Friday’s show, while the reunion of the original members of Vermont rockers Strangefolk will perform on Saturday. On Saturday afternoon, moe. will rock the base of Killington Resort’s Bear Mountain with help from Eastbound Jesus.

Several afternoon performances by a variety of artists including Brooklyn-based jazz/funk/pop quartet  Tauk, Brasstronica quintet The Primate Fiasco, electro-rock band Jimkata, progressive string band Floodwood and Maine alt-country rockers The Mallett Brothers Band will take place throughout the weekend at select Killington Resort day lodges.

Special, separately ticketed, kick-off parties will take place in Killington Thursday evening, March 24 at the Wobbly Barn featuring Marco Benevento with special guest Mike Pederson and at the Pickle Barrel featuring the jam-heavy, Dead Sessions.

Festival attendees will be able to take advantage of a variety of winter activities available at Killington Resort, including a very special Snoe.down learn to ski/board program. Attendees may purchase reduced price lift tickets to Killington Resort with their Snoe.down ticket and be eligible to choose from a variety of discounted Killington lodging options.

moe. continues to promoter their latest release, What Happened to the LA LA’s. The band’s tenth studio album and follow-up to 2008’s Sticks and Stones was released in January of 2012.
