Festivals come and festivals go… And some festivals continue to raise the bar and deliver something that’s different, unique, spectacular and Snowbombing Festival 2017 is one of those festivals.

Based in Austria, Mayrhofen to be precise, Snowbombing 2017 is a festival up a mountain. GASP! Yes up a mountain and not any old mountain, but a mountain that’s 8,497ft tall (roughly about 9 Eiffel Towers stacked on top of each other like lego)

Here’s 10 reasons you must go to Snowbombing Festival 3rd to 8th April 2017
