Snowbombing is in it’s 17th year now, and for a long time has served as one final hurrah for the winter snow season, attracting skiers, snowboarders, and partygoers alike to the otherwise unassuming Austrian town of Mayrhofen for a full week of shenanigans on and off the piste.
Mpora arrived midway through the festival, the second half of the week being when many of the larger named acts are reserved for. Being held in Spring each year, Snowbombing has traditionally been a place where you can rave all night, but then cure the resulting hangover with a day on the slopes wearing nothing more than a t-shirt and trousers.
Hopes of this idyllic notion were raised by reports that Mayrhofen was hotter than Malta in the days leading up to the festival. However, by the time Mpora had arrived, the luck had ran out, and anywhere above 1000 metres – where the snow was – was shrouded in thick, soupy mist.
