Festival line-up update: Snowbombing, Eurosonic, Alt-Fest and more

By | Published on Thursday 31 October 2013


So, the big news on the festi-scene this week is Austria’s springtime winter sports event, Snowbombing, and its big revelation re 2014 headliners The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers.

The latter act, who join the bill along with Chase & Status, Rudimental, Groove Armada and the like, say this of doing that: “We’re very excited to play such a unique festival, and a new one for us. We have been working on new material for a while now, so every DJ show gives us a chance to share music with people… let’s have a ball”.

Yes, let’s, but if you could all just hold off the ball-having momentarily to check this list of new additions to ‘ghoulish’ Northamptonshire outing Alt-Fest, continental new bands showcase Eurosonic, and pop-rock rager Radstock, that’d be great…
