MTV Finally Getting Into the Music Business
Having finally cornered the market on teen moms and Floribama shenanigans, MTV is branching out of their comfort zone to the world of live music festivals with the acquisition of the SnowGlobe Music Festival. What does this mean for the future of the outdoor Lake Tahoe festival? We don’t know, but here’s to hoping Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino is able to host a stage before going to prison.

New Festival Alert! Forbidden Kingdom
Excision has already put on two festivals this summer and fall with Bass Canyon and Lost Lands so why not keep the party going with a winter-time festival. The medieval themed Forbidden Kingdom will storm into the untamed wilds of South Florida this February.
