The ‘Greatest Show on Snow’ Snowbombing Festival is set to be back with bang in April 2014, with The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers set to perform.
Now in its 15th year, Snowbombing is Europe’s largest, longest-standing and most unique snow and music festival, taking place between April 7th and 12th 2014 in the snowy alpine town of Mayrhofen, Austria.
With mountains as a perimeter fence, Snowbombing is one of the most unique festival venues in the world, featuring a sky-high igloo 2,000 metres above sea level, enchanted forest clearings, cosy alpine lodges and medieval barns.
Selling over 25 million records worldwide and effortlessly withstanding the test of time, The Chemical Brothers trio will be tearing on to the Forest Stage to treat Snowbombers to a high octane, adrenaline-fueled DJ set like no other.
The Chemical Brothers said " We’re very excited to play such a unique festival, and a new one for us. We have been working on new material for a while now, so every DJ show gives us a chance to share music with people…let's have a ball."
Also making a welcome return to the mountains are the brilliant Chase & Status. After recently releasing their fourth studio album ‘Brand New Machine,’ the duo will be entertaining the crowds with an exquisite live set delivering their blend of dubstep-infused breakbeat mixed in with some bassy treats.
Cooler than a yeti in a blizzard, east Londoners (and Barclaycard Mercury Prize nominated) Rudimental will also 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 lucky 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.
