What do Ludacris, Kaskade, Duke Dumont, Oliver Heldens, Snakehips, and Bob Moses have in common?
They all wear the same shoe size? Wrong.
All six will take to the stage at this year’s Coors Light Snowbombing Canada: one of the most substantive music festivals of the 2017 festival scene. Boasting more than 28 artists across a number of stages, the event’s lineup is set to feature Billboard chart-toppers, Grammy-award winners, and some of the best up-and-coming acts to keep the four-night party going.
Arguably the most commercially successful Southern rapper of his time, Ludacris’s career has spanned more than 15 years, with highlights including sold-out arenas around the globe and nearly 16 million album sales worldwide. Known for his Dirty South style and trendsetting role in the rap industry, Ludacris is a more than worthy headliner.
With numerous wins of the coveted “America’s Best DJ” award by DJ Times, multiple nods on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart, and two Grammy Awards for Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica album, Kaskade deserves his title as a “must-see” DJ. And not least after that Coachella headlining set. Hot on the heels of the release of this month's latest single, “Beneath Me”, the performer is set to bring his new music to the party.
Canada’s Snowbombing event draws from an international pool of talent, and will showcase a strong contingent of European performers. With the lineup featuring Dutch DJ Oliver Heldens and England’s Duke Dumont—the artist with the most-played song on the U.K.’s BBC Radio 1—the festival will cover a number of different genres. Stellar names within the electronic music community Getter and Netsky will both join the bill, with trap king Hudson Mohawke adding some grit to the mix.
Snowbombing is set to be held at Sun Peaks Resort—which, with the addition of two new alpine ski zones from the 2014-15 season, has now become the second largest ski area in the country. With some of the best powder in B.C., there’s plenty on offer to entertain Snowbombers alongside the festival. Boasting over 4000 acres of snowsport terrain, the resort is the perfect playground for both adrenaline-junkies and novice skiiers.
For those ready to take a break from ripping over the first-class powder, however, there’s snow yoga, trail-side pools, saunas, and relaxations rooms. Accommodation is plentiful with Snowbombing’s array of luxurious condos, offering breathtaking mountain views and roof-top hot tubs. After taking some R&R, festival-goers are invited to enjoy chair-lift speed dating, and—this is our personal favourite—one of B.C.’s largest fancy dress street parties.
