This year's festival begins today at 4 p.m. with the Blue Ball, in the "ReAnimate Yourself Tent," in Guercio Field, near Barker Reservoir.
The ball includes live music, cocktails at an ice bar, and a costume contest for those who come dressed as the "Cold-as-Ice Queen" or "Grandpa Bredo," aka Frozen Dead Guy, the Norwegian man rumored to be cryogenically frozen inside a Tuff Shed in downtown Nederland.
Ice-cold entertainment includes thirty live bands in three music tents. A $20 wristband grants access to all the shows on Saturday and Sunday, and can be purchased at any tent. Sunday-only wristbands are available for $10.
Friday, March 9: 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Saturday, March 10: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Sunday, March 11: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
