NEWS: Snowbombing Festival Announces Line Up
Snowbombing '07 is back with what promises to be the biggest and most eclectic music festival of the winter season. Taking place between the 9th and 15th April, the popular resort of Mayrhofen in Austria will again present the season's most highly anticipated party. Thousands of British snowsports & music enthusiasts flock for a fiesta that stretches across mountains, streets and nightclubs for a whole week of fun.
As one of the largest and most highly regarded resorts in the world, Mayrhofen gets completely taken over for a week long party of hedonistic adventure and extreme sport. To top it all off, it takes place over Easter weekend so that's one more day off work to enjoy the amazing spring sunshine and snowy mountains of one of Europe's most snow-sure, late season resorts. The nearby Tux glacier (Austria's highest lifted point) is only a short (free) bus ride away and although open all-year round, is at its best in spring.
Famous for delivering a cutting edge line up of world class DJs, Snowbombing is proud to have such live acts joining the bill such as The Young Knives, Sunshine Underground and Kid Carpet. The DJs this year confirmed to blow everyone's minds include Scratch Perverts, James Zabiela and Annie Mac.
Gareth Cooper from Snowbombing says:
"We're very pleased to add the live element to Snowbombing, which we feel reinforces our position as one of the biggest winter festivals in Europe. Watching bands playing at 2000 metres with the snow capped Austrian Alps in the background is certainly different. The event has come along way, 2500 people is probably the biggest exodus of Brits for a one off event. We do several festivals but this is the one we are most proud of, mainly because the atmosphere that shapes the festival is probably the best I've ever experienced in 15 years of festivals. Without being cheesy, it's a right laugh from start to finish."
Another new addition is the booking system, which allows you to create your own online group with incentives for group bookings for your mates including free places and extra bonus packages. All this and more can be done via www.snowbombing.co.uk - So why should you and your friends wait 'till summer to party again?
