The 2011 edition of the Vovlo Snowbombing festival will take place on April 4-9 in Mayrhofen, Austria, and The Prodigy have just been announced as its chief headliner.

The seemingly invincible, routinely arena-filling Braintree trio will perform the best of their berserk, time-honoured of rock/rave anthems in a particularly stunning location.

“This is the biggest band we have ever had at Volvo Snowbombing, and it shows our commitment to growing the festival each year with people and talent,” says Volvo Snowbombing founder Gareth Cooper.

“We are really proud to have The Prodigy  playing in one of our amazing venues – a forest clearing with wooden stage surround by the snow topped mountains of the Alps in Mayrhofen. We have pushed the boat out for the 5000 people that go to the festival, this is just the start, the rest of the lineup that we will be announcing over the coming weeks is going to be equally impressive showing that pound for pound Volvo Snowbombing is one of the most unique festivals in the world.”

FACT will be hosting its own party at Volvo Snowbombing 2011; more info on that forthcoming. And then of course there are the skiing and ‘boarding opportunities: Mayrhofen is one of the world’s most reliably snowy late season resorts, with the legendary Tux glacier a stone’s throw away. There are various accommodation/entertainment ticket packages available – for more information, click here.
