This year Snowbombing will be teaming up with house DJ superstar Hot Since 82 to deploy his new brainchild — Taken. Taken is the DJ's secret parties where clubbers are taken on a magical mystery tour before finding themselves at the location for the party.
Suspense is built by placing a blindfold onto each participant and bundling them into the back of a blacked-out coach before whizzing them off to the top secret location in the mountains.
The Taken figurehead himself, Hot Since 82 is set to headline the event alongside a handpicked selection of DJs ready to bring blindfolded bombers to an exclusive bitter bash.
The reaction on social media today towards the announcement has been huge. One HS82 fan on Twitter said, “We went to the London night. Folk will do well to get in on this one. It'll be boss! #taken”
The frosty festival that takes place in the mountains of Mayrhofen, Austria which runs for five days between the 6th and 11th of April will host other acts such as Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, Carl Cox, Eats Everything, Paul Woolford and Jackmaster amongst many more.
