Whoop Whoop... I hear the sirens coming, no that’s not the advance avalanche warning system in Mayrhofen, its the announcement of the first instalment of Snowbombing's monumental live line up for 09 and it’s pulled out one of the UK’s biggest selling artists of 2008. The 10th anniversary celebrations are already getting ahead of themselves, booking one of the world’s biggest dance DJ’s to headline; Fatboy Slim, Snowbombing 09 is now fixing you up real sharp!
SUNDAY 29TH MARCH - SATURDAY 4TH APRIL 2009
REVEREND & THE MAKERS / BEARDYMAN / THE WHIP
FILTHY DUKES / PNAU / THE CUBAN BROTHERS
DAN BLACK / FLASHGUNS
He’s just a rascal, he’s Dizzee Rascal... Brapp, braap, and all that, Snowbombing has pulled one of the biggest and most loved artists in the UK out the hat! Swapping the urban jungle for the majestic mountains Dizzee Rascal is pulling up his pants and tipping his hat to what is going to be one of his most unique and high altitude performances ever. Still fresh of No. 1 chart success with ‘Dance with me’ and pulling arguably the largest and most raucous crowds at Reading & Leeds, Underage and Glastonbury, it’s now the pristine mountains of Mayrhofen’s turn to get deep down and grimey. There will be nothing hotter to warm your musical roast chestnuts on this year, so grab your cold bits in those comfy woollen mitts, John McCririck would tell ya, this is 09’s best musical tip.
So you think you’ve sinned and covered yourself in the finest grime know to man, Snowbombing now offers you the chance to cleanse your soul, confess and seek salvation in the form of the revered indie/rock messiahs Reverend and the Makers. Preaching out poignant urban poetry like a Yeti coughing up snowballs, John McClure and co will ride the stage with their unique crowd interaction and involvement blessing you with their eccentric and unpredictable live antics. Meeting your maker in a scenic snow lit backdrop can bring only prosperity and richness to your musical pallet, so bring your bible as it’s time to pray and thank the lord for blessing you with ears and eyes.
If the hills were alive with the Sound of Music, Beardyman would throw his vocals round it, mix, scratch and twist it up into a whimsical, icicle melting hot pot of an anthem and create Snowbombing’s very own musical fresh from his still cold voicebox. The twice UK Beatbox champion, and comedic musical performer will be brandishing a whole new act with amazing comedy timing and internal and external sounds that will leave you dumbfounded and dribbling into your Jägerbomb. A rare mountain treat you’ll definitely be writing or beatboxing home about.
Blowing in like a blizzard at last year’s Snowbombing and cementing their place in Snowbombing folk law The Whip were 08’s most outrageous discovery and diamond in the snow. One of the most talked about artists and not just for their fine electronica/ disco pop house, The Whip had the crowd pulsating with anticipation and trepidation from start to finish from inside to outside. With their ear shattering sets and arm throwing electro/ rock performances, every debauched moment in the midst of The Whip left those lucky bombers to witness their antics quivering like Snow White on a first date with Max Moseley.
Rising up the musical ladder to stardom like Robin Askwith in ‘Confessions of a Window Cleaner’ Snowbombing stalwarts The Filthy Dukes keep every bar, club and dance hall gleaming through the language of dance with their beautifully dirty electro and live performances. Sundrenched Aussie dance Duo Pnau brandish what can only be described as gorgeous happy smiletronica to dance and grin to with your heart’s content and now stand on the precipice of UK eminence after rave reviews from all quarters of the UK and the globe. Parisian Londoner Dan Black strolls up to his first Snowbombing with his pure white electro pop coming fresh of chart success with hit single ‘HPNTZ’ and being championed as Zane Lowe's hottest single in the world this will be a chance to see Dan Black before he becomes bigger than Father Christmas. With Snowbombing never one to go with the predictable and putting the snowcat amongst the robins, the eclectic mix of genres continues with new wave/ soul indie kids Flashguns. Making their Snowbombing debut they will be brandishing their unique pogo hoping frenetic live shows unseen before at 2000ft above sea level.
And no Snowbombing is complete without the spirit, the funny bone and the tantastic live shows of the always incredulous and boundary breaking fans favourite; The Cuban Brothers. Snowbombing veterans and honorary citizens of Mayrhofen, The Cuban Brothers unleash their infamous live shows of breakdancing, comedy, nakedness, dance offs, crowd participation, classic and modern disco, tans and accents in your face like no other show on this earth. You’ll be sporting medallions, hairy chests and cigars bigger than bananas for weeks and the perfect way to start is tanning that bod on the glistening slopes of Mayrhofen.
This is only the tip of the iceberg for live acts, DJ’s, events and activities so start steering that good ship ‘Where to go for my Winter Holiday’ towards the welcoming and all encompassing Snowbombing!
