MORE SNOW BOARDS AND BEATS UP A MOUNTAIN

31/03/2008


This morning our production team landed back in the UK after producing the incredible Snowbombing Festival in Mayrhofen. This seven day event combined the best of snow sport culture with the freshest new bands and Djs 2000 metres above sea level in the Austrian Alps. Ear to the Ground was responsible for the smooth running of over 100 events with headline performances from artists including the Pigeon Detectives, Calvin Harris, Dirty Pretty Things, Annie Mac, The Foals and Madness. Highlights of our production management role included a huge street party, a disco in an igloo and building a 3000 capacity stage in the forest for the finale event headlined by Suggs and co. We were responsible for all aspects of the show build and stage management as well as liaising with local authorities and managing all health and safety aspects of the festival. Organiser Gareth Cooper of SBH events stated. We are committed to making Snowbombing better every year and a real standout of the European Festival calendar. With Ear to the Ground we can continue to improve the quality of our offer and constantly improve. Creating an event at the top of a mountain with potentially terrible weather conditions is only made possible with the professionalism, hard work and health and safety considerations of the Ear to the Ground team.

Snowbombing is one of the most grueling events Ear to the Ground works on. However as always, we’ve made so many friends, enjoyed so many great moments we just can’t wait for an even bigger and better Snowbombing 09.
