It is one of the most anticipated and enjoyed moments of Snowbombing week, bringing together every single ‘bomber in a wild, anarchic cavalcade of fancy dress, chicanery, incredible DJs, live acts and more good hearted oompah cheer than the finale of Oktoberfest. The entire town switches off for the afternoon in celebration of Europe’s biggest outdoor fancy dress event and as the bunting goes up and the beer stalls get set up, the fervour of anticipation on the air is palpable. AND it’s back!
Introducing the Fancy Dress theme for the SB18 Street Party!
The SB18 Street Party: The Fancy Dress theme is Musical Heroes!
What's the fancy dress theme all about?
With a bonafide superstar in Craig David taking the reigns for the 2018 Street Party, we thought it was only right that we offer up the opportunity to delve into the richly textured, personality packed world of Musical Heroes! So don a beehive like dear old Amy Winehouse, tailor those parachute pants to strut around the 'hof like MC Hammer, get that tongue practising your very best Gene Simmons from Kiss impression or even just grab a pair of maracas and wig out like Bez in classic Happy Mondays style! Channel your inner Keith Richards, sport a sassy ensemble like Elton John or how about hittin the 'hof as one of David Bowie's many guises (our shout would be The Thin White Duke). It's your call!
Do you fancy donning a luxurious fur lined Kangol Hat and bossing it like LL Cool J? Is there a gang of 4 who reckon they could do a decent stab at The Beatles? Can you belt it out like a young Whitney Houston? Have you always dreamed of performing an elaborate air guitar in the middle of an Austrian Ski Resort like Keith Richards would do? Or, are you brave enough to squeeze yourself into Britney's infamous red catsuit?!
The choice is yours...
Who's playing then?
The arrival of Craig David for his inaugural Snowbombing appearance in 2016 was akin to a Garage Music Pope descending on the town and blessing us all with his mere presence. There simply wasn't one single Snowbomber who wasn't completely gassed for his set, and in a heaving Racket Club the UK Garage legend did not disappoint.
Now it's time for the return of the pope, and after honing his TS5 show at festivals and parties around the globe, we know Craig's going to be upping the anti when we steps on stage at the legendary Snowbombing Street Party. Craig will be ably supported in this cavalcade of madcap chicanery by seasoned SB hero Mistajam, the pure heritage Garage stylings of MJ Cole and hot up 'n comer John Gibbons.
The party begins at 4pm, and we recommend getting down early doors to make the most of the awesome outfits on display, special unannounced features and attractions and the unbeatable Bavarian bonhomie on display throughout the chocolate box resort we call home. Remember ladies and gentlemen, that you are a Musical Hero!
Stop twisting your melons, get ready to Re-rewind, tell us what you want what your really really want and get ready for the return of the Space Cowboy.. It's the Musical Heroes Street Party!
