BERGFESTival: Skiopening for Rock fans
“Rock’n Rodel” is the motto of the BERGFESTival that takes place at Saalbach Hinterglemm in December each year to mark the start of the skiing season.
For two days and two nights, Saalbach Hinterglemm and the entire ski resort turn into a festival village. In addition to skiing and winter sports in general, the event is all about music, with high-carat live bands performing against a breath-taking mountain backdrop.
Imagine a mix between après-ski and a rock festival, and you will have a pretty good idea of what the BERGFESTival is all about! In terms of music, the BERGFESTival moves between rock, indie, hiphop and electronic music. Bands such as Sportfreunde Stiller, Kraftklub, The Hives, Alligatoah and Wanda played to full houses (or should we say chalets?) in recent years. The bands play at several different locations, either in a cosy mountain chalet, on the big outdoor stage or in the clubs of the resort.
What started out as a crazy idea has become a beloved tradition. In 2018, the festival will take place for the sixth time. The line-up includes Beatsteaks, Seiler & Speer, Fein Sahne Fischfilet and many more. Spending the day on the slopes and partying with international bands in the evening has turned out to be an irresistible combination! The BERGFESTival will truly set the Alps on fire and is a great kick-off to the skiing season for fans of live music. Definitely worth a visit! The festival attracts rock and skiing enthusiasts from all over the world and tickets are hard to come by. Grabbing an early-bird ticket is a good idea as these sell out quickly. In addition to regular festival tickets, day passes are also available.
