The English county of Kent has a proud history when it comes to invasions. It’s said that the people of Kent adopted the motto Invicta (“Undefeated”) following the Norman invasion of England, because the spirited resistance of its Anglo-Saxon peasantry deterred the Normans from attempting to gain full control over the east of the county.

Snowbombing made headlines last week for all the wrong reasons, when Stormzy pulled out of his headline set because of alleged racial profiling. Reaction on the ground was mixed: many Snowbombers, as well as the wider musical community, sympathised with the London grime artist, but I also spoke with several festival goers who voiced support for the security team, who had been regulars for many years. There’s a sense of camaraderie and community amongst the Snowbombing faithful. Now in its 20th year, the familiar sights of Hans the Butcher, a local delicatessen turned occasional venue, or Rompa’s Reggae Shack, a jungle and drum & bass hothouse high up in the slopes, create an intimate atmosphere for the thousands who descend on the Austrian ski village of Mayrhofen each year. Hans the Butcher, a deli shop turned disco, played host to Skream, Waze and Odyssey and more (Caption: Carolina Faruolo / Fanatic) Having lost one of its headliners, and having had The Prodigy pull out after the tragic death of totemic frontman Keith Flint, it fell to one of dance music’s most reliable practitioners to bear the Snowbombing flag. Fatboy Slim, in trademark hawaiian shirt, let his decades of experience shine through by performing a knockout set, blending his iconic hits like Eat Sleep Rave Repeat into a mix of Wildchild’s Renegade Master, playing crowd favourites like Praise You and dipping his musical toes into more recent bangers, like Childish Gambino’s This is America, all accompanied by a mesmeric and energising visual show behind him. Fatboy Slim with Eats Everything before his headline set (Picture: Andrew Whitton/Fanatic) At the beginning of his set, Fatboy Slim was joined on stage by Bristol-based Eats Everything. The dynamic duo had been partying together all day, having taken part in the rainbow-filled, 90s-themed Snowbombing parade a few hours earlier. A Snowbombing staple for years, the street party was filled with loud colours, endless confetti and energetic revellers dressed as 90s throwbacks like The Mask, Wayne’s World and Ash Ketchum, as floats led by Fatboy Slim filled the town with positive energy, tailed by the Scottish ‘Cuban Brothers’ blaring The Prodigy’s firestarter, in memory of the late great Keith Flint. [metro-video id=”1907454″ video=”https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2019/04/17/7846483487864014364/480x270_MP4_7846483487864014364.mp4″ image=”https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/04/17/15/12392082-0-image-a-5_1555511792634.jpg”%5D Keith Flint’s spirit was everywhere in Mayrhofen – you felt him from the ski lift as Firestarter blared below from Rompa’s Reggae Shack; you felt him as Out of Space reverberated around an igloo at the 2000 metre Arctic Disco in a Wilkinson set; and you felt him in the Racket Club (a sports-club turned temporary mega venue) at 2am, for the culmination of drum & bass legend Andy C’s performance. Andy C and Keith Flint had been regulars at Snowbombing for years, after first meeting more than two decades ago. It made his performance in the Racket Club all the more special when, after an hour of powerful, high-octane drum & bass, Andy C played tribute to his old friend with a drum & bass-infused version of Firestarter – catnip to an already blissed out crowd. It was small moments of spontaneity like these that made Snowbombing’s 20th memorable. Modern festivals are planned meticulously (even more so for an anniversary celebration) which made deviations from the script particularly refreshing. On the first day of the week, Skream and Solardo spun impromptu tunes above a smorgasbord of delicious meat in Hans the Butcher’s.  Kurupt FM dowse the crowd in champagne before skiing the next day (Caption: Richard Johnson / Fanatic) The hilarious Kurupt FM, after spraying the crowd with Champagne amid a backdrop of classic garage the night before, could be sighted trying their hand at snowsports the next morning. More impromptu sets, by the likes of DJ Yoda and Eats Everything popped up throughout the week. One of Snowbombing’s more unique sets was from one of last year’s breakout stars Tom Grennan, who provided some much needed acoustic relief.  Performing on a rainy Tuesday evening, he had the unenviable task of playing to a crowd previously dancing to pumping tech house. But with his signature cheeky charm, he quickly had fans singing along, playing hits like Praying and his Chase and Status-collaboration All Goes Wrong. Tom Grennan provided a breath of fresh air in Snowbombing’s dance heavy schedule Snowbombing is a near 24-hour festival, with partying long into the night. Much of the debauchery occurs at Bruck’N Stadl, an Alpine lodge-style dancefloor complete with disco ball, bird cage, and grand chandeliers. Over the week, it played host to some of the world’s most talented DJs, including Mall Grab and Moxie’s irresistible grooves for the Mixmag takeover, Paul Woolford a.k.a Special Request’s stripped back techno, and dubstep godfather Skream’s pivot to house music. Snowbombing venue Bruch ‘N’ Stadl played host to a roster of talented DJs With a dizzying array of music on show, it was a welcome break to head up to the mountain in the mornings. The near-silence of the ski lifts, where you can appreciate the beauty of the Penken mountain from above, was the perfect rest. But there was, of course, plenty more music on offer if you hadn’t had your fill. From bouncy jungle, with the likes of High Contrast and My Nu Leng at Rompa’s Reggae Shack, to more melodic house and electronic offerings from the likes of George Fitzgerald at the Mountain Stage. Rompa’s Reggae Shack provides beats even when you’re up the slopes Snowbombing finished on a euphoric high, with a nostalgia-filled Chase and Status set in a magical forest backdrop, in aid of mental health charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and Keith Flint. Just hours later, Bicep played a joyous two hours of bliss-filled breaks and jubilant house in the Racket Club, putting a cap on what was a hectic, manic, but ultimately enormously fun, week. While Snowbombing may be struggling to strike a balance between old and new in a time of great change in the music industry, their inimitable brand of fun and daft hijinks still feels fresh – the skiing is just the cherry on top. [metro-fact-box title=”Top Tips for Mayrhofen” colour=”grey” icon=”exclamation”] Snowbombing can be a bewildering place to stay – here’s some helpful tips. Eat and drink – You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to food in Mayrhofen, both up and down the slopes. Skiing can be high-energy work but luckily, Hans the Butcher offers all manner of delicious meat treats a minute away from the main ski lift. Hans is a bit of a local legend, so trying something is an essential part of the Mayrhofen experience. Up the mountains, you can’t beat the Schneerkarhütte restaurant, which serves delicious, completely organic food at 2,500 metres – the views aren’t half bad either. Skiing – If you’ve never been skiing before, Mayrhofen’s Penken Mountain is a very friendly place to learn; there’s plenty of nursery slopes at the bottom for you to hone your ski skills. If you’re more experienced in the snow, then you can test your mettle on the Harakiri – at 70%, its Austria’s steepest slope! It’s a good idea to rent a locker once you get on the mountain. At about €9 a day, it saves you carrying your kit around. Money – Mayrhofen isn’t the cheapest place to go on holiday, but once you’ve paid for your ticket, accomodation and travel (offered in packages by Snowbombing) and your ski hire, there’s not too much more to worry about. There’s several Spar supermarkets in town (think: Sainsbury’s of the Alps), so it’s a good idea to load up on beer (about a euro a can), sandwich bits (you will definitely get peckish on the slopes) and dinner ingredients (if you access to cooking facilities) Relax – Between the frenetic dancing, skiing and trekking all over Mayrhofen, you’re legs are going to be feeling the burn. Mayrhofen is well known for its abundant and high-quality spa treatments. If you can’t afford to splash out on a massage (the Strass hotel offers a wide range), then at least book yourself in for a sauna, steam room and a swim. It’ll rejuvenate you and leave you ready for the coming evening. Talk to people – There’s an enormous amount going on over the Snowbombing week. Even if you’re meticulous in your planning and try to see everything, you’re probably going to miss something. The best way to find out goings on is to have a chat! [/metro-fact-box]
