Now in its amazing fifteenth year, Snowbombing is Europe’s largest, longest standing and most unique snow and music festival, taking place from 7-12 April 2014 in the snowy alpine town of Mayrhofen, Austria. With mountains as a perimeter fence and boasting some of the most awe inspiring festival venues in the world, including a sky-high igloo, 2,000 metres above sea level, enchanted forest clearings, cosy alpine lodges and medieval barns, Snowbombing is a festival experience like no other.
The 2014 edition sees Snowbombing celebrate their 15th birthday with their biggest line-up to date. Those famous fire-starters The Prodigy will take over The Forest stage, treating Snowbombers to a high octane, adrenaline-fueled performance like no other! The Chemical Brothers are also set to unleash their Block Rockin’ Beats on the ‘Greatest Show on Snow’ with their debut DJ set at Snowbombing. After recently releasing their forth studio album ‘Brand New Machine,’ Chase & Status will return to the mountains to entertain the crowds with an exquisite live set delivering their blend of dubstep-infused breakbeat mixed in with some bassy treats.
East London‘s Rudimental will return to the slopes for a second year. The band went down a storm in the forest in 2013 and will continue to ’Feel the Love’ as they treat Snowbombers to an unforgettable DJ set. Another act to be announced in this extravaganza of Snowbombing goodness is Groove Armada. The duo have been shaking clubs and festivals to the very core for 15 years and certainly know how to whip a crowd into a frenzy. We can’t wait for them to bring their eclectic DJ set to the slopes.
Other acts performing include Four Tet who will not only be performing live in the magical forest but also curating a special forest line up featuring Daphni, James Zabiela, Nathan Fake (LIVE) and Anthony Naples. Expect this to be a truly magical performance in one of the most incredible settings known to man.
Sub Focus also joins the DJ line-up bringing his own blend of high-energy crowd-pleasing beats to Snowbombing. Man of the moment Breach also joins the snowbombing bill. After hitting the globe with his single “Jack” and becoming a favourite on every DJs playlist, Breach is a force to be reckoned with and we can’t wait to see him take Mayrhofen by storm.
Following her summer residency at ENTER. in Ibiza, Siberian producer Nina Kraviz will swap sunny climes for snow-peaked mountains in what will be her debut apearance at Snowbombing. And after packing out the terrace of DC10 all summer long, The Martinez Brothers also need cooling off so they have decided to swap the beach for the snow in April. Snowbombing favourite Skream will also be back to do what he does best!
Hospitality will once again be entertaining the masses with their trademark sounds from High Contrast, London Elektricity, S.P.Y, Logistics, Etherwood and MCs Dynamite and Wrec. Snowbombing stalwarts The Dub Pistols will be back to perform live, there will also be a live performance from Dense & Pika along with DJ sets from A-Skills, Ben & Lex, Breakage, Citizen, Daniel Avery, Hannah Wants, Huxley, Kove, Krafty Kuts, Kyntro, The Martinez Brothers, North Base, Radio Slave, Rattus Rattus, Roska, Route 94, Smash HiFi and The Heatwave.
