ALTITUDE FESTIVAL XMAS 2016 11th-17th December 2016
We're getting festive in Mayrhofen 11th-17th December 2016, with our first Altitude Christmas - The Funniest Show on Snow (with added Ho Ho Ho!)
It’s going to be a very different festival with new experiences, new venues, new shows, new slopes and of course new acts (and old) as we ‘explore Austria’ and celebrate a traditional Austrian Christmas.
To celebrate the festive season, Altitude will be creating #LightUpMayrhofen. Out of a couple of tons of steel and metal, Altitude will produce a dazzling Festival of Lights. The stunning, illuminated path leads from the Enchanted Schellung Forest to the town of Mayrhofen with bewitching lights. There will even be free Austrian snacks, mugs of hot Gluvine and traditional choirs to warm your Chrismas cockles.
We are incredibly excited to reveal that there will also be an enchanted forest - Advent in the Forest is filled with beautifully decorated stalls offering delicious local crafts, foods and drinks. Here you can ignite your festive spirit whilst sitting by an open fire and listening to Austrian Christmas music.
If you’re a seasoned skier or boarder and worried about the snow…IT’S SNOW PROBLEM!
Altitude is putting on FREE regular buses for festival-goers to Austria’s only year-round ski resort, The Hintertux Glacier, which is just up the road. As well as astonishing views and amazing restaurants, the Hintertux Glacier offers winter sports enthusiasts perfect, snow-sure runs 365 days of the year and over 60km of runs suitable for all levels from beginner to pro.
We are still finalizing negotiations for discounted day ski passes for Altitude-goers to join us at any Hintertux events, so we will announce information on this as soon as its confirmed.
If you know that you are likely to want to head to the glacier daily then we can recommend the Super-Ski pass which allows unlimited access to all Zillertal slopes - more information here: https://www.zillertal.at/.../zillertal-superskipass.html
The Original Silent Disco are joining us all the way from Holland, and hosting two electrifying events at Altitude Christmas. The first is a Silent Disco ON ICE! We are shaking with excitement to ice-skate (and fall over) to all of our favourite tunes. The second event will break the world-record as The Highest Silent Disco ever and will take place on top of the Hintertux Glacier at 3250m!
Altitude has become one of the most sought after shows that comedians want to play on the planet and acts confirmed for Altitude Christmas so far are Andrew Maxwell, Zoe Lyons, Andy Askins, Daniel Sloss, Glenn Wool, Kai Humphries, Barry Castagnola, Oh My God! It's The Church, Abandoman, Terry Alderton, and of course The International Impro Allstars
Don’t forget, we’ve still got a comedy giant to announce hitting the slopes and rocking the jokes, guaranteeing that the first ever Altitude Christmas will be the one to remember.
