Bucket List: Snowbombing – Europeans Know How to Party

Nov 4, 2010 by     No Comments    Posted under: Bucket List, Festivals

Snowboarding in the AM, Music Festival in the PM. If this isn’t the perfect event for us, I don’t know what is.

Website Description:

Snowbombing is a festival filled with fresh air, blue skies, black runs and white-hot parties… An exhilarating week-long whirlwind of brilliant bands and world class DJs in the chocolate box alpine setting of Mayrhofen, Austria. Always scaling new heights; we are ever-upping the alpine ante… And as we approach our twelfth annual event, Snowbombing is now regarded by many as, ‘The Greatest Show on Snow’. A unique, mischievous celebration that everyone should experience.

For over a decade, Snowbombing has embraced live music from a wide spectrum of international artists; from Fatboy Slim to Friendly Fires, Mylo to Madness, Dizzee Rascal to De La Soul and Doves to Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip… A World Class Electronica Showcase in the Snow!

A festival is only as good as its setting; and we are blessed with stunning alpine peaks, panoramic snow covered plateaus, fragrant pine forests, 200 year old traditionally-built wooden barns… And a nightclub made entirely from snow! With 625 KM’s of pistes, Austria’s steepest piste, a 3286m glacier AND an award-winning terrain park, Snowbombing offers pure powdery perfection for those who prefer to eat their cheese rather than fill their ears with it!

The biggest 2011 headliner? Prodigy!!!! Unfortunately, we have big plans for 2011 and will not be able to go. Maybe the year after!

Have you been to Snowbombing? Where, when, and who did you go out to see? Any tips?
