Snowbombing: the countdown begins for the greatest show on snow! The 2011 edition will take place from april 4 to 9 in Mayrhofen, the famous Austrian ski resort.
The popular week-long winter sports and music festival has been run since 2000 when it was first held at the French resort of Risoul as an après-ski nightclub promotional exercise started by English promoters from Manchester called Outgoing Ltd. However, since 2005, the Tyrolean resort of Mayrhofen has hosted the festival which has evolved into Europe’s biggest snow and music festival.
The events format is designed to combine winter sports, with on-piste and après-ski music performances and themed parties in unusual locations, including an igloo village(pictured), a forest clearing, a traditional remote alpine farmstead and an open-air street party.
Snowbombing 2011 have assembled a line-up which represents the largest ever seen in a ski/board resort: Prodigy, Carl Craig, 2manydj’s, Fatboy Slim, The Sunshine Underground & many more. Info on www.snowbombing.com.
