Snowbombing celebrates 15 years!

Snowbombing celebrates 15 years!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.
