Described as the “world’s greatest show on snow,” Snowbombing returns in 2012 with  'Drop It Like It’s Hot' and 'Sweat' singer, Snoop Dogg, topping the bill.

The festival, which takes place during the week beginning 9th April, will see Snoop Dogg take to the stage, set in the middle of a forest in the Alpine mountain town of Eristoff, located in Mayrhofen, Austria.

Gareth Cooper, founder of Snowbombing, said: “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."

He continued: “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 5,000 people in one of the most unique locations in the world.”

Also on the line-up at Snowbombing are Example, DJ Shadow, Groove Armada Presents Redlight, The Vaccines, Labrinth, Wretch 32 and more. Furthermore, the festival will also feature a DJ line-up that includes Chase & Status, Zane Lowe and Skream.

However, not only does Snowbombing provide musical entertainment, but extreme sports is also included in the package. Short bus rides are provided so that festival goers can go skiing and snowboarding down the nearby Tux glacier – Austria’s highest lifted point.

Other entertainment comes in the form of a Back Country Party and an Arctic Disco – that takes place in a club made entirely of snow.

In the past, it has seen live performances from the likes of Fatboy Slim, Madness, Dizzee Rascal, Prodigy and Pigeon Detectives.

Prices for Snowbombing range from £289 to £499, which includes entertainment and accommodation. More details on the pricing, travel details and the festival are available on the Snowbombing website.
