Snowbombing

This Is Progressive has been asked by Bootleg Social Records to support them on their 5th Snowbombing Birthday celebrations at the week-long festival, a whirlwind of world class DJs and bands, in the idyllic alpine setting of Mayrhofen, Austria. Days are spent skiing/boarding, enjoying music on mountain -top stages or relaxing in the spa of a 4* hotel. Nights deliver cutting edge performances from world-class acts in unique venues; from a sky high igloo, to an enchanted forest clearing. Now in its fifteenth year, Snowbombing is regarded by many as, “The Greatest Show on Snow”. Mystical. Musical. Without equal.

For fifteen years Snowbombing has snowcased live music from a wide spectrum of international artists. From Prodigy to Pendulum, Kasabian to Katy B, Fatboy Slim to Friendly Fires, Madness to Maceo Plex, Dizzee Rascal to De La Soul, to Doves… Unforgettable and unique, Snowbombing presents stadium-fillers in an intimate alpine setting. Showcasing a unique line up of original and ground breaking artists, Snowbombing mixes fresh current talent with crucial pioneers of the music scene. Our annual award winning musical programme has led to Snowbombing being called, ‘The Greatest Show on Snow’ ( …after ‘Celebrity Strictly Meets X Factor Dancing on Ice’, obviously).

2014 acts are yet to be confirmed but check out the full Snowbombing 2013 Line up here to see the cut.

After a breathless 2011 headlined by The Prodigy and an archaic 2012 event topped by Dizzee Rascal, we reached our summit with the capture of Kasabian to headline The Forest Party in 2013. The locals call it, ‘The Forest of Legends’… It’s a gorgeous pine glade surrounded by razor sharp peaks, which each Spring cradles our headliners in an aromatic fab-forest festival of full-on fun amidst the foliage. We know SB14 will be the best event yet, so watch this space for line-up announcements coming soon!

SO WHAT DOES ONE DO NEXT?

Well, we have compiled a quick guide to making your journey with us in 2014.

Snowbombing is from 7-12th April that’s 5 DAYS Mon-Fri (you can stay extra nights either side of those 5 days and normally £50 odd per head extra)

The cost STARTS at £319 – £500 – this is the cost of accommodation per person.

Included in the accommodation price you get the wrist band that gets you into all the scheduled events.

THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE – Flights, ski hire, ski pass and transfer

The total cost through experience is around £600, which is a great price considering you get a weeks worth of 30 events to go and see and be apart of.

People only have to pay ONLY £125 pounds asap aka NOW! (The earlier you pay you are guarantee beds within the town .. leave it late then you end up down the valley up to 5 km away. Remember there 4500 people going to this one town. The secret is just pay DEPOSITS EARLY!!!)
