News: Altitude Festival Line Up - First Acts Announced

The first acts have been announced for this year's Altitude Festival in the Austrian ski resort of Mayrhofen.

They include Terry Alderton, Andrew Maxwell. Marcus Brigstocke, Zoe Lyons, Daniel Sloss, Joel Dommett, Craig Campbell, Glenn Wool, Andy Askins, Kai Humphries, Jenny Bede and Altitude veterans The International Improv All-stars. Many more acts are still to be announced.

This time Altitude moves to a pre-Christmas slot, running from December 11 - 17. There will be new venues, new shows, new slopes as the festival celebrates 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. For one night only they will be artistically reinventing a magical path beginning at the Penken Lift, transforming it with fire, stunning fountains of water, hanging drops of light, symbolic Hot Heads and a mini fire-lit bandstand which will run the length of the street. The local shops, businesses and cafes will open up to reveal local artists in residence for the night. 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. 

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.

Major acts will be announced soon, but early bird tickets, including an exclusive VIP Altitude Ticket are on sale now. Full details here.
