Ski festivals are ace. You know it, we know it. Snowbombing is back this year and the lineup is already looking pretty sick.
Headlining the 17th Snowbombing next April is The Prodigy. Back with a vengeance following decades of jaw-dropping performances, the original masters of rave have vowed to take it to another level at The Forest Party this year with what will surely prove to be a grand Snowbombing finale.
‘Snowbombing festival rocked, respect to the people who made it great!”
The Prodigy, 2014
Also topping the bill is award-winning drum and bass pioneer, turntablist and producer Andy C, with his trademark three decks in action, expect him to tear the roof off the Racket Club.
Mercury Award nominees Jungle are hitting the Snowbombing bill for the first time. Following rave reviews for theirmassive album last year, the electro soulfunk duo J and T and their full live band will be joining Belgian drum & bass producer and musician Netsky and Groove Armada dropping one of their classic DJ sets at at Austria’s largest fancy dress Street Party – it’s sure to be a spectacular show.
Snowbombing boasts some of the most awe-inspiring festival venues in the world from a mountaintop igloo 6,000 feet above sea level to enchanted forest clearings, cosy alpine lodges and atmospheric medieval barns. Not to mention the plethora of bars, clubs, dives and speakeasys. Last year saw the reintroduction of the legendary Bruck N Stadl, a traditional Austrian wooden ‘haus’ equipped with an enormous Funktion-One sound-system that in its time has hosted the very cream of the house and techno scene from Eats Everything to Modeselektor.
