The View For Snowbombing

Austria's stunning Snowbombing event is set to return again with The View added to the line up.

Set in the hills of Mayrhofen, Snowbombing has grown to become one of Europe's top events covering snowsports and music. Now celebrating its 10th anniversary organisers have arranged their best bill to date.

Fatboy Slim has already been confirmed as a headliner, with UK hip hop don Dizzee Rascal also due to perform. The eclectic bill also includes the legendary Grandmaster Flash as well as electro newcomer La Roux.

Newly added to the bill, The View are one of Britain's most talked about groups. Debut album 'Hats Off To The Buskers' hit number one, and the band set off on an infamous tour of British venues leaving carnage in their wake.

Now returning with their second album 'Which Bitch?' the band have matured somewhat. An eclectic affair, the new album combines sea shanties, orchestras and rapping with their trademark indie bite.

An incendiary live act, The View are most definitely on fire - so the organisers had better watch they don't melt the snow!

Snowbombing takes place in Mayhrhofen, Austria between March 29th - April 4th.
