“Great things are done when men and mountains meet” So said William Blake.
Now men and women and mountains meet for snowboarding , igloo parties, raves and a fancy dress street party. Now that’s a Festival!
The Snowbombing Festival takes place in the idyllic Austrian village of Mayrhofen. Headlining this year’s edition are British rockers Kasabian, who will perform a main stage set as well as an acoustic show at the Arctic Disco igloo. The sibling synth-pop duo Disclosure will help you transition from skiing to dancing, as well as the iconic DJ Carl Cox.
Getting there may be half the fun when you participate in the Snowbombing Road Trip, a non-competitive musically-motivated drive that starts in London, takes you across the Channel to Calais and on to Austria.
Kick-off April and go Snowbombing!
