snowbombing 2012

With only five weeks to go until the hills are alive with the sound of music, Snowbombing shouts its latest news from the mountain-tops in Mayrhofen and announces three more great additions to the line up along with more snowy shenanigans.

Regarded as one of the founding fathers of Dubstep, the definitive sound of Croydon, Benga returns to Snowbombing! With credentials that spread back over nearly a decade, Benga is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in Dubstep. Joining the Dubstep pioneer is another great British DJ known for seriously mixing things up. Jaguar Skills is renowned for his off the wall, mish mash style of mixing and found his first break back in 2002 on Radio 1. With a heavy back catalogue of mix-tapes behind him Jaguar Skills packs his finest cuts and returns to Mayrhofen. Our last addition is no stranger to snow and hails all the way from Canada. With big names like Annie Mac and Erick Morillo championing his music Neoteric joins the lineup. With releases on FATBOY SLIM’S imprint, Southern Fried Records and Diplo’s Mad Decent, Neoteric fits in amongst the rest of our artist like a familiar friend.

If you haven’t made plans for Thursday then we’ve got something very special in store for you. The Board Park will host the legendary Good Times sound system with Captain Norman Jay MBE taking control of the Motorola Mountain Terrace. Four pro snowboarders will show of their skills on one of the best terrain parks in Europe to the sound track of some really exciting music. Radio 1’s MistaJam will be hosting and spinning for survival in our first ever Disco Battle Royale with special guests Skream, Artwork and Jackmaster. With plenty of comfy sofas, cold beer and pork rolls from Hans the butcher, what better way could there be to spend an action packed Thursday on this sun-soaked, outdoor venue.

Metro Presents The FATBOY SLIM Street Party will be causing road-blocks for miles and with everyone in fancy dress, it is set to be the event anyone at Snowbombing will not want to miss! Procession leader Fatboy Slim will be hosting this “Block-Rockin” party on our amazing moving sound system with some very special guests. Snowbombing family member Krafty Kuts will be carving through some serious beats along with Doorly and legendary Latino hype duo, The Cuban Brothers!

As if this wasn’t enough for you, Snowbombing would like to introduce three national treasures who will be causing havoc in the hills.  Household hero, Eddie The Eagle Edwards will be giving some expert Skiing lessons over the course of the week. Snowbombers can also expect to see Eddie leading the Metro Presents the FATBOY SLIM Street Party. Another national treasure appearing at Snowbombing is TV fitness guru, Mr Motivator who will be getting Snowbombers warmed up and into shape. Snowbombing would like to take this opportunity to announce its newest venue and third national treasure. TV hero and Fun House ambassador, Pat Sharp will become the first landlord in The Ravers Arms – the Snowbombing themed pub. Drop in to visit Pat Sharp and raise a glass at one of his hilarious “One Hit Wonders” Parties. Sensible haircuts need not apply!

Phew, hold on to your hats!
