dbnAudile’s involvement with Snowbombing stretches back to 2001, when their newly-purchased Funktion One system was trucked to Risoul in France to entertain five-hundred people at a handful of parties in two small venues. Fast-forward to the present time, and Snowbombing has grown to become the largest snow and music festival in Europe, bringing six-thousand people to Mayrhofen in Austria, with dozens of world-class DJs and live acts playing in twelve venues. Working alongside event management agency Ear to the Ground for promoters SBH Events, dbnAudile continues to provide production for the festival, annually trucking three artic trailers packed to the roof with sound and lighting kit out to Mayrhofen.
With live headliners like The Prodigy, Kasabian, Example, Dizzee Rascal, Madness, Fatboy Slim, De La Soul, Friendly Fires, Doves and Editors, production values for the main ‘Racket Club’ and ‘Forest’ venues are the equal of any festival or venue on home turf. The outdoor Forest stage is not without its challenges, though, not least shoe-horning arena productions like The Prodigy’s into a compact stage of traditional timber construction, more commonly the venue for Tyrolean oompah concerts.
