Fresh air, blue skies, powder and white-hot parties. A week-long whirlwind of world class DJs and bands, in the idyllic alpine setting of Mayrhofen, Austria. Days are spent skiing, boarding, enjoying music on mountain top stages or relaxing in the spa of a luxury hotel. Nights deliver cutting edge performances in unique venues, from a sky-high igloo, to an enchanted forest clearing. Mystical. Musical. Without Equal… This is Snowbombing.
Now described as ‘the greatest show on snow’, Snowbombing was conceived in 2000 as a nightclub promotional exercise started by British promoters from Manchester. Since then it has grown into a truly remarkable event held over 6 days that sees thousands travel from all corners of the globe.
The notion that a festival is only as good as its setting rings very true here. Mayrhofen is blessed with stunning alpine peaks, panoramic snow covered plateaus, fragrant pine forests, a 300 year old traditionally built wooden barn and a nightclub made entirely from snow! If you love skiing or boarding then the 487km of trails and award winning terrain park should go a fair way to satisfying your powdery urges.
And if it’s the music you’re after, the 2015 festival has just wrapped up and featured names on the lineup included Fatboy Slim, Skrillex, Rudimental, Carl Cox and Basement Jaxx to name a few. In 2016 it will also include one incredibly lucky Your Shot winner.
