Snoop To Headline Snowboarding Festival

The World’s Greatest Show on Snow is proud to welcome the World’s most famous rapper SNOOP DOGG to the mountains to headline the Snowbombing snow and music festival in Mayrhofen, Austria, from 9th-14th April 2012.

Tha Bigg Boss Dogg will swap the urban jungle for a forest clearing and deliver his trademark bombastic street raps surrounded by snow-capped peaks, headlining a festival famed for its unique venues, picturesque setting and music-savvy, snow-loving crowd.

SNOOP DOGG will be droppin’ it like it’s hot alongside final acts including U.S. hip hop supremo’s and legendary live act; the pioneering JUNGLE BROTHERS.

Radio One demigod (and one of the best darned DJ’s in the World), ZANE LOWE joins deadly Italian tech/electro-house duo CROOKERS, techtonic disco-house terrorist TENSNAKE and Detroit booth operator extraordinaire SETH TROXLER! And shaking the snow from the trees this year is the Cross Town Rebel King himself DAMIAN LAZARUS and boy wonder the freak’n’chic JAMIE JONES!

The exquisite electronic grooves of LEE CURTISS, Leeds decknician PAUL WOOLFORD and ‘bombing stalwart, style guru and pure-joy-to-behold party-fueller’, JUSTIN ROBERTSON will join the snowy shenanigans too. DILLON FRANCIS, Mulletover’s master-at-arms and Murmur resident GEDDES, raw analogue anti-hero BODDIKA, Montenegran tribal house wunderkind S.O.S., and acid-house firestarter SPENCER PARKER will also be sending the hills into meltdown this April.

And that’s not all folks! Joining the bulging brilliant bill is talented UK Funky protégé LIL SILVA, Benga & Skream’s MC of choice, YOUNGMAN, electro-jack duo CAZE NOVE (Firas & Jay Karim), mistress of minimal breaks LADYWAKS, the versatile MICHELLE OWEN, floor filling disco queen SOPHIE LLOYD, enfant terrible of the NW D&B scene PROPHECY, dub vendor and reggae reimagineer DADDY NATURE, Snowbombing’s unstable stable-boy, MARC ROBERTS , 20-20 Vision’s house don DANNY RAPER.

SNOOP DOGG will sit atop a mountain of talent which will shine in surely some of the most unique and unusual venues this side of Neptune; – sky high igloo villages, forest clearings, mountain stages, traditional wooden barns and open-air street parties provide a perfect festival frame for a fantastic frenzy of faces!

As one of the largest and most highly regarded resorts in the world Mayrhofen is 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 relax and enjoy the amazing spring sunshine and snowy mountains of one of Europe’s most snow-sure, late season winter resorts. The nearby Tux glacier (Austria’s highest lifted point) is also only a short (free) bus ride away, and although open all-year round, it’s at its 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 and the bonkers Back Country Party plus ski & snowboard lessons, equipment hire and airport transfers.
