The greatest show on snow: Snowbombing announce the first acts set to perform at their 2020 event, taking place at the stunning alpine resort of Mayrhofen, Austria from 13th – 18th April 2020.
Legendary rocker Liam Gallagher is set to head the bill for Snowbombing’s 21st edition. Still riding the wave of his hugely successful second solo album ‘Why Me? Why Not?’, the former Oasis frontman returns to Mayrhofen amid critical fanfare, for what is set to be a roadblock show at the Enchanted Forest Stage, surrounded by dramatic mountain views and a killer sound system.
British legends The Streets also take headline billing. Mike Skinner’s urban crossover collective have had an unprecedented impact on the UK music scene for almost two decades and continue to blur the lines between garage, hip hop, rap, and beyond. Catch The Streets at the infamous Snowbombing Street Party – a firm favourite for locals, festival-goers and fancy dress aficionados alike.
Also announced – indie sensation Foals. No strangers to the Austrian resort’s premiere music festival, Foals return to Snowbombing’s Forest Stage after a 12-year hiatus, ready to cause a stir on the slopes following their 2008 performance, which instantly became the stuff of legend.
From the tower blocks of West London to the manicured pistes of the Austrian Alps, Kurupt FM are spreading the UK Garage sound far and wide. Having cemented their title as the most exciting urban act to come out of London in recent years. Grindah, Beats Chubuddy G, and the Kurupt crew have taken the international festival circuit by storm with their unique blend of big beats and even bigger laughs.
Drum ‘n’ Bass legends Chase & Status also join this year’s electronic offering; the seminal UK bass act are sure to set pulses racing and have feet stomping late into the night along with Bass-heavy live act Rudimental. Both acts are making their way to Mayrhofen’s famous underground warehouse venue – Racket Club for high energy shows sure to put the venue’s high class production through its paces and be among the week’s highlights.
After the runaway success of his Channel 4 talk show, London rapper Big Narstie makes a return to Mayrhofen on a promise to further showcase his unparalleled vocal stylings over an eclectic blend of bass heavy beats – providing partygoers with a show like no other.
Rounding off the headliners, Elder Island are on hand to provide their signature indie infused electronica to the baying après ski crew. Providing the perfect sonic accompaniment to the dramatic backdrop of snow capped alpine vistas, Elder Island’s repertoire of soulful classics are a sure-fire way to set the perfect mountaintop vibe.
Dynamic house duo Gorgon City also join the bill alongside breakthrough bass act Holy Goof and genre-blurring selector Mall Grab. Elsewhere, Maribou State are ready to showcase their unique take on high production electronica while Wilkinson and Sub Focus add to an already jam-packed D’n’B offering and My Nu Leng continue the bass-heavy booking policy – leaving no doubt that Snowbombing 2020 will once again set the slopes alight with a line up showcasing the full spectrum of live and electronic acts.
Also joining the #SB2020 bill – funk and soul maestro Craig Charles brings his unique flavour to Mayrhofen with touches of old school and lashings of soul, DJ Seinfield supplies big basslines and party vibes whilst Paul Woolford keeps house and techno fans satisfied with two slots – one as alias Special Request.
Party starters Alexis and Barely Legal are also confirmed to bring their distinctive sounds back to Snowbombing alongside fellow Rinse FM regulars Emerald and Krystal Klear. Meanwhile Distinkt, Monki, Mattias Meyer, TSHA, and Uncle Dugs also make exciting and versatile additions to the red hot alpine line up. Jaguar, Brame & Hamo and Kristen Velvet are also heading to Austria and sitting perfectly alongside performances from house music legends Heidi, Waze & Odyssey, Rebuke, Kettama and master VJ – DJ Yoda.
Last, but by no means least – wonder kid Sherelle rounds off an all-star bill having sent shockwaves across the UK underground with her cross-genre sound, mixing the best of jungle, house, garage and beyond.
