Kasabian announce first festival appearance of 2013

Band will play Snowbombing festival in Austria

Kasabian have confirmed that they will headline Snowbombing festival in Austria next year.

The band, who finished the summer by headlining Reading & Leeds Festivals, will play a headline set in the Austrian Alps at the shindig, which will be held between April 1-6 next year. The band will perform twice – once as headliners and a second, more intimate set.

Acts already confirmed for Snowbombing 2013 include Skream, Toddla T, Scuba, Fake Blood and Carl Cox. Last year, the festival was headlined by Dizzee Rascal with performances from The Vaccines, Example and Fatboy Slim.

Speaking about their performance at Reading & Leeds earlier this year, Kasabian guitarist Serge Pizzorno told NME in a video interview, which you can watch below: “It’s hard to put into words… I thought there were seven levels and there’s actually eight. We got to the eighth level last night. It was absolutely unbelievable. The crowd… We flew out of this universe.”
