His albums have topped the charts for decades and his recognizable persona has earned him a role in several hit movies. Since his 2012, reincarnation as Snoop Lion, the artist has ditched his hip-hop background for a soul-searching reggae journey. However, Snoop Dogg and Snoop Lion will join forces onstage at this year’s SnowGlobe festival playing an array of old hits along with newly inspired Snoop Lion material.

Cut Copy
This Australian electronic band has been revealed as the New Year’s Eve mystery headliner that will perform during the grand finale on Dec. 31.
