UK indie-pop powerhouses Bastille will headline Go 96.3’s Snow Show ’18!
Snow Show is our annual winter music festival, and this year we’re proud to showcase a diverse lineup of national and local artists that represent the best in Modern Alternative.
Go 96.3 is proud to be independent and locally owned, and we handpicked our lineup to reflect the wide range of sounds you’ll only find on our station. That’s why we’ve invited Bastille, LANY, Albert Hammond Jr. (The Strokes), and local champs Last Import to perform at this year’s Snow Show.
Go 95.3, Go 96.3, Audi of Minneapolis, Audi of St. Paul, McDonalds, Firefly Credit Union and National Camera Exchange are proud to present Snow Show ‘178 at Palace Theatre on Wednesday, November 28th. Tickets will start at $29.96 for this all-ages show.
Tickets will go on-sale Monday, 10/8 at 10am, but #GoFam members will have early exclusive pre-sale access starting today at 10am. You can also stop by the GoMN offices to buy a ticket starting Monday. If you plan to buy a ticket in-person, bring cash or credit and come any time between 10 a.m.-4p.m. on Monday through Friday.

The UK indie-pop hitmakers behind infectious tracks like “Pompeii,” “Things We Lost in the Fire,” “Bad Blood,” and “Happier” have been steadily releasing new music this year in a run-up to a new album called Doom Days that’s set to drop some time before the holidays. After their epic performance for Snow Show ’16, we already know that Bastille can deliver an incredible live show, and we can’t wait to see what new tricks they have up their sleeve.

Congrats to the boys from LANY, who just dropped their justifiably-hyped second album Malibu Nights today, featuring the world-beating hit song “Thru These Tears.” The electro-pop rockers have grown along with G0 96.3, selling out First Avenue last year and sending their passionate fanbase into a frenzy.
Albert Hammond Jr. (The Strokes)
All it takes is one pass of the spectacular riff in “Far Away Truths” from Albert Hammond’s new release Francis Trouble to remind you whose hands are behind the guitar. The Strokes’ former rhythm guitarist has decades worth of experience crafting sinewy new wave licks, and he’s pulling out all the stops with his solo material. This is one opening set you definitely can’t afford to miss.
One of our favorite runners-up from our Go Local Battle of the Bands earlier this year, Last Import is an energetic melodic surf-punk trio based in Minneapolis, MN. The band started off as a teen collaboration between friends and reignited in 2017, with members also daylighting as full-time college students. The girls each bring a diverse sound ranging from The Front Bottoms to Sleater-Kinney to the Beach Boys.
