Time to start digging up your skis, snowboards, sallopettes and lederhosen… the annual Snowbombing Festival is back this year and fast approaching.
Set in the idyllic Austrian resort of Mayrhofen, the festival boasts an incredible line-up of top DJ’s and music acts from the likes of Kasabian, Katy B, Example, The Cuban Brothers, MS Dynamite, Disclosure, Rudimental, Carl Cox, Fake Blood, Simian Mobile Disco, Seth Troxler - and that doesn’t even cover the half of it…
The week long festival kicks off on April 1st and caters for every snow and music lovers needs. Days can be spent on the slopes boarding/ skiing, enjoying music on the mountain top stages or being pampered at the spa of the 5* hotel- beats overheating or freezing in a barely-standing tent in the middle of a muddy field doesn’t it?
Nights kick off with back-to-back, cutting edge performances from an array of musical talent. You can catch your favorite acts perform at one of Snowbombing’s famed alternative venues that range from a sky-high igloo, an enchanted forest clearing or a traditional remote alpine farmstead. Snowbombing Festival started back in 2000 in the French resort of Resoul as a promotional, après-ski experiment and has since evolved into Europe’s biggest snow and music event.
The festival has played host to a number of big acts including Fatboy Slim, Tinie Tempah, 2ManyDJ’s, Foals, Chase and Status, Pendulum, Grand Master Flash and the Prodigy all of which have helped the event to grow in popularity and status over the years.
