Mountains on FIRE: KASABIAN TO HEADLINE SNOWBOMBING ’13
We are over the hill (or Austrian mountain) to confirm notorious rock and roll firebrands KASABIAN, who are ready to dust off their salopettes and mittens and set fire to the après-ski celebrations as they prepare to headline SNOWBOMBING!
Combining the Stone Roses hypnotic magic and the club-infused grooves of Primal Scream, KASABIAN’s eagerly anticipated appearance amidst razor sharp peaks will provide a suitably out-of-this-world climax, to “the greatest show on snow”.
Kasabian said: “We have heard amazing things about Snowbombing over the years. Dance music has always been a massive influence on us so we are very exited to play this iconic event.”
The Leicestershire lads will not only be appearing at the now legendary intimate forest setting that has also seen the likes of The Prodigy, Madness and Fatboy Slim perform before them, but they will also be scaling the hillsides to another summit as they perform a second and completely exclusive and intimate show… Details to be released soon!

Snowbombing founder Gareth Cooper said: “One of the world’s best live bands playing in a small Austrian village is what Snowbombing is all about; delivering a unique, intimate festival experience in amazing surroundings and venues.”
We have also announced an additional avalanche of outstanding live acts for 2013, such as dexterous electro-pop superstar EXAMPLE who we’re excited to say is stepping up for the forest party. Now firmly established as a main stage festival act and a firm Snowmbombing regular, this will be Elliot Gleave’s first open-air alpine appearance.
Example said: “I don’t just come to Snowbombing on the day of the gig. I come for the week. Still the best party of the year for me – unrivalled location. I’ve got the added excitement of playing the party in the forest this year!”

With a voice as pure and crystal clear as an alpine spring morning, KATY B brings her sweet, vocalised dubstep, R&B and UK garage sensibilities snowbound. Lets hope her “mission” to Mayrhofen goes as smoothly as the Harikari!
We’re confident we know a thing or two about music and showcasing a wide spectrum of acts, from international legends to the most exciting emerging talent. Teenage brothers in rhythm, DISCLOSURE, provide another smashtastic addition to our line-up, effortlessly combining the 2-step garage rhythms and dubstep basslines of the underground UK Bass scene with their own rich musical take on soul and garage music. After their debut in Amsterdam at our launch party earlier in October atADE, we are salivating at the prospect of Disclosure’s live show in the Racket Club.

Double BRIT Award and three time MOBO Award winning UK garage, R&B and rap sensation MS. DYNAMITE makes a welcome return to the mountains after her explosive debut at this year’s event with her intoxicating mix of innovative and incendiary styles (that’s a mix of garage, break beats, hip-hop, and a dark dose of R&B BTW), and alongside Katy B we’re thrilled to have such a strong group of feisty female singers this year.
