Snowbombing, whether in Austria or in its newer home of British Columbia, Canada, is the most raucous snow festival on Earth. Thousands of feet up in the air, music lovers shred down acres of ski slopes, partake in hilarious festival activities, and rage to incredible yearly lineups.
April 2018 marked Snowbombing Canada's second year, but you'd never know it. Thanks to SBH Events' & Broadwick Live's production expertise and Snowbombing Austria's two-decade-long legacy, the Canadian iteration is as robust and sleek as festivals come. This year's excellently curated lineup included ODESZA Live, Daniel Caesar and NGHTMRE, Borgore, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Fisher, GG Magree, Goldlink, Gorgon City, Justin Martin, Kyle, Matoma, Nora En Pure, Party Favor, Troyboi, Will Sparks, and many more, which meant attendees were treated to some of the most talented artists around performing in one of the most unique settings in the world.
There's plenty to warm you up when you're not dancing. This year's activities included Chairlift Speed Dating (which is just what it sounds like), the Slush Cup (wherein boarders, riders and drinkers shoot downhill on a wet and wild course), the Snowlympics, Ride & Seek, and, of course, showing off your best and weirdest costumes throughout the weekend. Offsite, you can go on a guided ice fishing expedition, snowy segue tours, or try ski-biking.
Of course, none of this would be as fun without your festival squad. We assembled photos of the most vibrant festie squads to make the trek to Snowbombing Canada this year. Maybe they'll inspire your festival squad on future festie adventures!
