Witness the ultimate Alpine Music adventure as Snowbombing goes above and beyond to give visitors the best experience possible from 3rd to 8th April 2017. Infact, the festival has even won the award for ‘Best Small Festival’ at the European Music Awards in Groningen. The organisers have just revealed the final wave of acts that will be joining an array of world-renowned performers as the festival brings the vibes to ‘the party capital of the Alps’. In more exciting news, with just under three months until this festival takes over the Alpine village of Mayrhofen, the theme of this year’s Snowboarding road trip has also been revealed.
Not to mention, Europe’s biggest festival car rally will also feature the Freakadelic Circus, pumping up the atmosphere in the mountains. With all these activities in store, we’re sure your excitement levels have gone way up!
But don’t use up all your energy, because the line-up is even better! Founder of the influential Ram Records as well as Drum & Bass pioneer, Andy C, is known for his award-winning electronic production skills. But did you know that the artist also happens to be a serious Snowbomber? Performing at the Racket Club, the artist is set to rock the fest with some classic DnB anthems.
That’s not all you’ll hear from DnB! Producer, DJ & Mercury Prize winner Roni Size, will also be performing at the fest. Making their debut at the festival is none other than Studio Barnhus head, Axel Boman, and Running Back main man, Gerd Janson. The two artists will be joined by UK producer Midland, Germany’s Matthias Meyer and Ruede Hagelstein and Compost regular Rafael Da Cruz.
This year, the festival will also be partnering with UKF. The partnership will be kicking off with a huge launch party – Snowbombing x UKF launch party at Printworks. With a line-up that includes the likes of Run The Jewels, Chase & Status, Courteeners, Giggs, Blossoms, Novelist, Slaves, Dixon, Groove Armada, Cassy, MK, Eats Everything, Gorgon City, Monki, KiNK, Stefflon Don and Grandmaster Flash; Snowbombing has really gone all out to create the best possible festival vibe and fill the Alps with a true musical atmosphere.
While you marvel at the utter talent the festival is going to host, you need to check out the many other features it has in store for you.
Calling all circus lovers! Or perhaps a shout out to all the bearded ladies, hair-raising acrobats, animal tricksters, mind-bending contortionists and devious ringmasters to join the Freakadelic Circus. This travelling freak show of over 150 cars and 500 ‘car-noisseurs’ will hit the open streets for an epic once in a lifetime adventure.
This awesome circus will also go on a fun journey for two days until it joins the greatest and most enjoyable festival car rally across Europe! The pit-stops are even more awesome! From funny ferry rides, road-trip raves to a Saturday night stopover featuring The Dance-Off and Bongo’s Bingo; the time will go by super fast! After all the excitement, the trip will have a hero fitting end as it rolls into Mayrhofen just in time to witness the parties with acts like Novelist, MistaJam, Mike Skinner, Doorly, Waze & Odyssey, Huxley and Theo Kottis.
Whether it’s the breathtaking landscapes of Europe, the numberless parties, ample supply of free food and drinks or just the crazy revelry; Snowbombing Road Trip is truly one of those rare experiences you wouldn’t want to miss.
What else can we say about the No. 1 music festival on snow?
Maybe we’ll just let you decide. After all, who wouldn’t want to see an Igloo rave 6000 sq. ft. above sea level or watch a performance on innovative mountain stages? Maybe enchanted forest parties are more your thing. Or an award-winning Snow Park, infamous pool parties, chairlift speed dating, paragliding, the Snolympics, Cable Car-aoke and Snow Limos. It’s goes on and on! The organizers have literally planned everything to ensure the festival creates a crafty and perfect blend of winter sports and music!
This year’s ‘Craft of Daft’ will take you on a trip down memory lane with Noasis, Daft as Punk and Antarctic Monkeys as they play a special 90’s homage set. Or maybe Super Hans, House of Voga and Disco Nights will get your night started. Winter Olympics hero, Eddie Eagle, will also host an Official Film Screening and Q&A. Traditional Austrian party, The Leder-Hoedown, will take on the village too! Enjoy scrumptious snacks from local outlet ‘Hans The Butcher’ and music supplied by traditional oompah band Zell Brass, Snowbombing resident DJs and partners Bodo’s Schloss, Bodytonic, Drop The Mustard, Metropolis, Flux, Halo, Mixmag Allstars, Musika, Muzik, Reasons and Rompa’s Reggae Shack.
