Opening up proceedings on Sunday 2nd April is Peep Show’s DJ supremo Super Hans. The mighty Hans’ anarchic, hands in the air raveathon is perfect for The Smirnoff Arctic Disco and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome this bastion of excess and hedonism to our corner of the mountains. Big beats are the best, get high all the time, as the man himself would say…

London based production trio Disciples will be bringing their club brand ‘The Following’ to The Smirnoff Arctic Disco on Wednesday 5th April. Effortlessly floating between underground dominance and mainstream success with a world conquering collaboration with Calvin Harris, the trio have formed a dedicated global fan base and The Following will see Disciples showcase themselves in ways never seen before. Joined by Dirtybird founder Claude Vonstroke who is sure to bring the party spirit.

Thursday 6th April will see Gorgon City bring their new Kingdom party to Snowbombing. With multiple chart hits to their name, including the gold-selling ’Ready For Your Love’, Gorgon City’s mix of addictive basslines and big vocal hooks will get those hands in the air at The Smirnoff Arctic Disco. Bristolian DJ and producer extraordinaire Redlight also stars.

Saturday 8th April sees DJ Yoda take control of the decks. A legendary selector and world class DJ, 2017 sees Yoda bring a fresh hip hop set to the Smirnoff Arctic Disco, with an upbeat party vibe. His shows blend classic film clips, cartoons, cult moments (and maybe even a few classic Snowbombing memories?) into one unbeatable audio-visual spectacular. DJ Yoda and Snowbombing go together like bread & fondue.
