What with the sun being out and everything, and talk turning to festivals all over the site this week, we’re getting pretty excited about festival season. So it’s pretty handy then that it starts NEXT WEEK with the Austrian snowboarding rave-up Volvo Snowbombing.
Holding the Tyrolean village of Mayrhofen hostage for a week Volvo Snowbombing will, as ever, fill the place with bands, DJs and a few thousand people in fancy dress. The Prodigy, Chase & Status, Pendulum, Fatboy Slim and 2ManyDJs are among the bigger names while Todd Terje, Toddla T and Joker represent the best of the infinite long tail of smaller but no less relevant names.
Here’s an audio preview of what’s going on in Austria in ten days, featuring a manic Drums Of Death remix of Fenech Soler’s ‘Demons’, 2 Bears’ take on Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and some classics from Jamie Woon and Summer Camp.

Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip – ‘Cauliflower (DIOYY mix)’
Fenech Soler – ‘Demons (Drums Of Death mix)’
