Giggs, Blossoms, Slaves, De La Soul, Dixon, Shy FX, Grandmaster Flash, Amine Edge & Dance, Claude Vonstroke and many more acts join the line-up for the world’s No.1 festival on snow.

South London rapper Giggs is set to make his Snowbombing debut! From selling mixtapes on the streets of Peckham to becoming one of the most vital voices in the industry with standout tracks like "Talkin' da Hardest" and “Lock Doh”, few artists have had such continuing impact on the UK hip hop scene.
Stockport five-piece Blossoms also join the bill. A band undoubtedly on the rise, having started the year on the prestigious BBC Sound Of 2016 new music list, before shooting straight to the top of the UK Albums Chart with their debut self-titled album, they are sure to provide one of the standout sets of the festival. Snowbombing also welcomes Noisenik duo Slaves. Since the release of their Mercury Prize nominated major-label debut album “Are you Satisfied” the punk duo have been making serious waves with their rapid-fire vocals, garage riffs and raucous live shows.
With a career spanning over 25 years, De La Soul has cemented itself as one of hip hop’s most innovative and influential groups. Aside from kickstarting a worldwide trend for baggy pants, tie-dye and multi-colored shirts, the original hip hop trio from New York City were an integral part of hip-hop culture’s global rise, inspiring a whole league of rap groups with their trademark sound. From classic cuts like "Me Myself and I" and the irresistible hooks of "A Roller Skating Jam Named "Saturdays”, the Long Island trio are guaranteed to get the party started.
With Dixon at the helm, German label Innervisions has developed into one of dance music's most celebrated institutions. As a DJ, producer, and co-creator of the legendary ‘Lost In A Moment’ parties, he continues to dominate the scene, regularly topping RA's annual DJ poll, and is sure to deliver a memorable performance.
Get ready for a fast-paced, anthem-filled set from a bonafide member of hip-hop royalty as DJ pioneer Grandmaster Flash steps up to the decks at SB17! G House duo Amine Edge & Dance also star, bringing booming basslines, tech rollers and booty jams galore whilst Dirtybird’s Claude Vonstroke adds a distinctly 4/4 flavour to proceedings.
D&B veteran Shy FX is set to make a welcome return to the mountains, along with Bristol-raised, London-based producer Redlight, DJ Zinc and UK garage heroes Heartless Crew. Rising UK duo Waze & Odyssey also join the bill, along with Bulgarian hardware maestro KiNK, German producer Butch, Snowbombing favourites Ben Pearce and Citizenn and Peep Show’s DJ supremo Super Hans.
