Run the Jewels, Courteeners, Groove Armada, DJ Koze and many more jump onboard for SB17!
There's life in this old dear yet! Just as you thought that Snowbombing 2017 couldn't get any more humungous, yet another avalanche of incredible acts have arrived! A cavalcade of terrific talent with their sights on the slopes, and enough genres to please absolutely everyone (except, perhaps, Morris Dancers), we're confident SB17 is going to be the biggest, baddest, beefiest and boldest yet... It's time for Achtung!
We're über stoked to announce that Run the Jewels, Courteeners, Novelist, and Groove Armada have joined the world class ranks of the world's greatest festival on snow, alongside a stellar set of DJ additions including DJ Koze, Mistajam, Bondax, Mike Skinner, DJ Yoda (AV Set), Huxley, Doorly, Gotsome, Eli & Fur, Theo Kottis and many, many more... Basically, this is the biggest lineup since we began back in 1999! Get ready for a carnival of House, Techno, Indie, Grime, Electro, Dub, Breakbeat, Drum & Bass, Hip Hop and even a spot of Austrian Oompah... This is one for the history books!
And in the live corner... Snowbombing prepares to welcome two of the biggest personalities in Hip-Hop ring, as Run the Jewels bring their explosive live performance for a debut appearance in the 'hof, adding yet more world class rap to the bill alongside heritage heroes De La Soul. Britian's "biggest underground band", the swoonsome, soaring indie pop heros Courteeners will be floating around Mayrhofen for the very first time. We can't wait to add them to our already bursting LIVE lineup for 2017, featuring the likes of Chase and Status, Blossoms, Slaves and many more. Snowbombing Royalty legends Groove Armada are set to take our super club by storm this year with their timeless catalogue of wonderhits and other-wordly lazer shows, whilst one of grime's new wave's youngest and brightest hopes Novelist will be rewarding for all those lucky chaps who'll be in town on Sunday night (2nd April). Playing at one of our special welcome parties, the South London MC, producer and recent owner of his very own record label will be bringing more godly Grime to the slopes, alongside previously announced Giggs and Stefflon Don - both set to grace the Racket Club for the first time.
R'n'B infused synth smoothies Bondax are heading back to the 'hof - this time set to take the Racket Club by storm... Fingers in the air! We're also stoked to welcome the new crown prince of House music Patrick Topping for his SB debut, fresh off the back of a superb summer - we can't wait to see what he brings. Huxley, Gotsome and Anna Wall are all seasoned pros, and none could turn down the chance to get back amongst it next April. Welcome aboard again!
Every DJs favourite DJ, the eccentic and eclectic DJ Koze will be bringing his wonderful array of dancefloor-busting, electronic selections to our very own 'Alpine Berghain' - the Bruck, for the very first time. DJ Yoda is putting together very special AV party set in the Racket club, whilst sultry London duo Eli & Fur are set to make their SB debut, after taking the festival scene by storm this Summer. Up and coming Edinburgh based Theo Kottis is making his first 'hof appearance, ear marked as one of the hottest young DJs in the bass scene right now - welcome Theo!
As you well know, Snowbombing is about far more than just the music (although there is a HELL of a lot of it). Madcap revelry, larking about and generally getting silly on the slopes is part and parcel of the experience, and our 3rd wave of acts also brings with it a carnival of silly chaos, as we welcome tour Tyrolean troubadours, ZELL BRASS will once again be in attendance at SB17. The local lederhosen-clad lotaharios will be popping up around the event and delivering some oom-pah soaked random renditions of traditional and contemporary tunage on their tubas. Nowhere will be safe from our marauding musos; They have licence to roam...you have been warned!
NEW FOR SB17! We are planning yet another outdoor soiree... All hail the return of 'The Lederhoedown'! But this time - it will be taking place in the centre of Mayrhofen. A thankful nod to our Austrian hosts, the party will be snaking up the Mayrhofen high street, with a handful of stages, pop-ups and weird and wunderbar suprises, hosted by our Snowbombing resident DJs and clubbing partner collectives such as Apex, Bodo's Schloss, Bodytonic, Drop The Mustard, Metropolis, Flux, Halo, Mixmag Allstars, Musika, Muzik, Rompa's Reggae Shack and more. Yah!
Phew, take a breather, it's a lot to take in, we know... Fortunately, it's not nearly finished as we can also giddily reveal that Pat Sharp himself will be making another appearance amongst the mountains for us in April but this time hosting our very own 'FUN HAUS', in what may just be the silliest and most raucous set of events that has ever been seen at Snowbombing... And trust us, we have seen a lot of silliness! Cover bands of legendary acts, Bongo's Bingo and much more are set to bring the fun and games to the Fun Haus at SB17... Read more in detail here!
