808 State in Switzerland - Snowbombing 2003?

Post by nickking » 22 Jan 2003 19:05

According to http://www.burntblue.com/news/news.asp?News=3300 :

"808 STATE DUST DOWN THEIR SKIS

It seems like the great and the good just can’t turn down the idea of a freebie to the glacial surrounds of Villers, Switzerland, the location of Snowbombing 2003. The latest addition to the line up is none other than Manchester’s very own electronic legends 808 State. The outfit, who returned last year with ‘Outpost Transmission’ - a helter skelter ride of electronics that fused dance savvy sensibilities with electronica style invention - will be joining a line up that already includes the So Solid Crew, Oxide And Neutrino, Mr. Scruff and Deadly Avenger, to slam down a live set. "

Hmm..... :)

Oh, and btw, the official website is at http://www.snowbombing.com/ and it's between 29th March and 4th April. Nothing mentioned on that site at the moment...

l8rs,

Nick :P

Confirmed..

Hiya All,

An old school friend of mine co-owns snowbombing, and he told me today
that 808 only just confirmed their headline at Snowbombing yesterday.
I've sent an official flyer-email to Markus so I guess he may take the info
on that and create a 808 live page. I've been tempted to go to Snowbombing many times but haven't found the time.. now there's no excuse!
Apres-Ski Schnapps whilst groovin' to the OT tunes.. not to be missed methinks.

Well, it could be another excuse to visit Switzerland again, although I have a sneaky feeling that this is when a couple of mates and me plan to go on holiday to Europe...

Maybe I should suggest Switzerland? :P

l8rs,

This is very tempting. Finances might be a problem though. :(

This could be a COOL gig.......harhar!!

Gonna be televised as well by the looks of it, who knows a snippet of 808 maybe. Reading the line up it sounds as though Peter Kay might be there as well, I might just book it, pack it and f**k off now

Peter Kay

What, Peter Kay :P and Darren Partington 8) in the same place at the same time? Hopefully we can now dispel these rumours, that they are one and the same, seperated at birth or brothers! Thinking back to Castlefield, I saw Darren's younger brother, and they weren't exactly the spit of each other! :P
L8RS,
John :D
