Snowbombing Announces Line-Up for 2018 Festival
The 2018 Mayrhofen Snowbombing Festival has announced its acts, and we here at NextFest got so excited at the news that we simply had to tell you all.
For those not familiar with Snowbombing, the premise is simple. Take one huge mountain. Dust liberally with snow. Add several stages. Now pour in thousands of people, drop in your high-profile artists, and whisk until they are well beaten. Basically it is a big avalanche inducing rave on top of a mountain. In the snow.
Sounds awesome, non? Well, it should be, as this year’s Snowbombing line-up really pushes the boat out, with a combination of live and DJ acts set to bring some frosty beats and bass to the Austrian mountains.
In live terms, we have a performance by the lead singer of one of the past 30 years’ most important indie acts, Liam Gallagher, who will be joined by drum and bass purveyors, Pendulum, grime kingpin Dizzee Rascal, tech-house producer, Bicep, Hak Baker, and Ross from Friends.
While they have tonnes of DJ’s yet to be confirmed, they have a comprehensive programme that covers all elements of dance music, from garage to bassline and house music. Currently headlining the DJ sets we have TS5 presented by none other than Craig David, garage overlord DJ EZ, and Wilkinson.
You can also expect to enjoy sets from Jackmaster, Dusky, Skream, David Rodigan, Disciples, Jax Jones, Artwork, Heidi, Alan Fitzpatrick, Mall Grab, Camelphat, Flava D, Redlight, Mele, Monki, Peggy Gou, Jasper James, Waze & Odyssey, DJ Hype, Doorly, Denney, Latmun, Anna Wall, and Jamie Roy.
So, plenty to be getting on with between drinking copious amounts of peach schnapps and falling down mountains on two thin strips of fibreglass!
Snowbombing Festival takes place 9 – 14 April at Mayrhofen, Austria.
