If you haven’t been to this legendary snow event (okay, drinking feast) in the Austrian Alps before, 2011 is definitely the year to go!
Because tearing through the Austrian mountains like demonic snow cheetahs and unleashing their own brand of chest-beating, no-nonsense, fire-starting profanity like musical napalm over the forest crowd will be none other than metal rave legends The Prodigy!
Effortlessly withstanding the test of time, The Prodigy boys are as fresh as they were when they started out and still as popular! Expect a high – octane mix of blinding strobes, smoke, adrenaline and pure tribal invigoration – old school stylee, as they treat lucky Snowbombers to a truly gob-smacking once in a lifetime high altitude performance.
The Prodigy will sit atop a mountain of talent which will shine in surely some of the most unique and unusual venues on the festival circuit – sky high igloo villages, forest clearings, mountain stages, traditional wooden barns and open-air street parties provide a perfect festival frame for more fantastic acts to be announced very shortly.
As one of the largest and most highly regarded resorts in the world Mayrhofen gets completely taken over for a week long party of hedonistic adventure and extreme sport. The resort also boasts some of Europe’s most lavish spas so you can also relax and enjoy the amazing spring sunshine and snowy mountains of one of Europe’s most snow-sure, late season resorts. The nearby Tux glacier (Austria’s highest lifted point) is only a short (free) bus ride away, and although open all-year round, is at it’s best in spring.
Snowbombing is an entertainment and accommodation package, where you can choose a variety of accommodation options to suit your preferences and budget, from 5 star luxury Spa hotels, to pocket friendly pensions. You can add a variety of extras to build a package to suit you including a variety of lift passes, bespoke parties, including the infamous Arctic Disco, ski lessons and airport transfers.
