Where: Mayrhofen, Austria

When: April 3 to 8 2017

Where to Stay:

Hidden gem – Wohlfühl Hotel

The family-run Wohlfühl Hotel-Garni Robert is a small but perfectly formed 4 star hotel close to the heart of Mayrhofen.

It makes an ideal place for you to retreat from the party vibe back to its quiet surroundings and to its proximity to the village centre.

Central Location – Hotel Gasthof Bruecke

The 3 star Hotel Gasthof Bruecke occupies a great location, being right next to the Ahorn gondola and only a short walk away from the Penken gondola and resort centre.

It the ideal place to take advantage of the extensive ski area and short walking distance from the nightlife.

What’s The Fuss All About?

If you are looking for a week of skiing in the sun, crazy apres vibe followed by worldclass bands abnd DJ’s, Snowbombing is the one for you.

Powder White offer a great range of hotels where you can relax and recover in the spa while you get ready for nights of cutting-edge performances from world-class acts in unique venues.

According to Festival Insights, this year they have introduced RFID-enabled cashless payments and access control for the first time and implemented across all of the festival’s main venues: Europahaus, Bruck ‘N Stadl, The Racket Club and the Street Party and Forest Parties. Genius!

skye, Val d’Isere

What’s The Fuss All About?

Unlike Mayrhofen where they throw a huge music festival, Val d’isere have a month party throughout the town and mountain. In the month of April, you will find Morris Pub beach party where they have a rule of Drinking The Bar Dry… They drop their drink prices down to €1!

Le Petit Danois BBQ
The famous Le Petit Danois always throw a big BBQ and drinks after skiing. This is a smaller but still enjoyable end of season party.

And the big one!

La folie Douce Closing Party. 

This will be right at the very end from the 25th April.

Every year La Folie Douce Closing welcomes thousands of people coming to celebrate the end of the winter season.

This year, La Folie Douce is putting the spotlight on Music and Fashion with the Rockabilly theme. « Back in the 50’s », the time when rock’n roll was taking off!

Young people adopted a lifestyle full of daring and energy! This era produced rock’s biggest icons, such as Elvis Presley.

With Val d’isere being so high up, the snow keeps until May.

Ischgl end of season party

Where: Ischgl, Austria
When: April 30th 2017
Cost: Concert admission is included in the €85 lift-pass price for concert day – compared with the regular day pass price of €48.

Where to Stay: 

Familyhotel Seiblishof

The Hotel Seiblishof in Ischgl offers a wonderful family hotel experience combining professional, full day childcare with a spacious spa area for adults to relax.

Located just off the main Ischgl high street and with a piste just a short distance from the hotel, the Seiblishof enjoys a peaceful, central and convenient location.

Familyhotel Seiblishof

Hotel Fliana – The stylish 4 star Hotel Fliana occupies a quiet location on a south facing ski slope that runs directly to the hotel and the two cable car stations.

It is the perfect place to recharge your batteries after the concert and a day on the slopes.

The beautiful hotel spa will truly take care of its guests, featuring an incredible indoor pool, sauna, solarium, blossom bath and a large catalogue of spa and beauty treatments and massages.
What’s The Fuss All About?

Up to 20,000 are expected to be rocking out at the top of Ischgl, held on a mountain-top stage at 2,300m. Ischgl’s impressive hall of fame includes Robbie Williams, Elton John, James Blunt, Rihanna, The Beach Boys and Muse, and this year it’s Italian rocker Zucchero’s turn.

I had never heard of him before but after listening to what he has produced, I believe he will put on a great show.

But even if you don’t own all his albums, the free concert is a great chance to grab a drink and soak up the party atmosphere.
