The World’s Greatest Show on Snow is proud to welcome the World’s most famous rapper – the one and the only SNOOP DOGG. The hip-hop icon, pop culture phenomenon, interstellar twitterer (with 2.5 million doggy disciples) and star of TV and film, is bringing his mic. 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.
Snowbombing Founder Gareth Cooper says: “The Doggfather of hip hop has remained at the forefront of popular culture for twenty years. As he’s pure canine cool, we thought it was high time he joined us in the mountains at Snowbombing. After The Prodigy played the amazing forest venue last year, we were nervous about how we could at least match the experience. But in Snoop we have one of the most perfect acts in the world for an event of just 5000 people in one of the most unique locations in the world. We at Snowbombing are proud to continue to punch well above our weight when it comes to the size of our lineup”
SNOOP will be rockin’ and rappin’ in the amazing Eristoff forest where The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, De la Soul, Madness and many more iconic acts have played).
Where better to party than in the middle of the woods in an Alpine mountain town? The whole population of Mayrfofen will be donning their scarves and winter warmers for this breathtaking experience.
Watch out for the ERISTOFF wolves who will be out on the prowl, expect the unexpected.
SNOOP DOGG will be droppin’ it like it’s hot alongside our final acts including U.S. hip hop supremo’s and legendary live act; the pioneering JUNGLE BROTHERS.
Turntable-wise, we are very wise indeed! 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 our 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, smile and rave…it’s RAFFLE MAFIA! (Bingo Banton and DJ Smash Hits) and nu-skool groove explorers FUZZ’BOX INC! …it all adds up to 99 artistes who will be providing the soundtrack to your a-slippin and a-slidin’ in the spring sunshine. PHEW! We just cannot wait to be Snoop’in around with y’all!
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!
