Headline Act Announced for the Top of the Mountain Concert in Ischgl

 

Headlined over the years by some of the music world’s brightest lights, the open-air Top of the Mountain concert takes place in Ischgl each year – the perfect way to close the winter ski season in style. It may seem a little early to be talking about the end-of-season parties, but this year’s concert headliner has recently been announced!

Lenny Kravitz to hit the stage in Ischgl

Lenny Kravitz will be bringing his eclectic blend of rock, blues, soul and funk to the snowy slopes of Ischgl on April 30th, 2019 – following in the footsteps of luminaries including Kylie Minogue, Lionel Richie and Robbie Williams.

News of the Grammy Award-winner’s forthcoming appearance has gone down well among snow-loving music fans. Kravitz’s 11 studio albums date from 1989’s Let Love Rule, and he’s garnered over 38 million record sales in his glittering career to-date. With Ischgl’s reputation as a party capital in the Alps, it promises to be a great show! Revellers can expect bright sunshine, snowy slopes and big beats rolling out across the valley.

The snowy slopes of Ischgl

Ischgl, a strong all-rounder

In a nutshell, if Ischgl isn’t on your list of resorts to visit, it ought to be! This traditional and charming Tyrolean town certainly packs a punch – with diverse terrain ideally suited to intermediate and advanced skiers, and plenty to see and do away from the slopes.

The lifts are rapid and perfectly placed to cover the ski area efficiently. The terrain parks and off-piste itineraries are outstanding, and the après ski is jumping. The peaks run up to an eye-watering 2,800 metres so the snow coverage is great, too. (Writer’s note: we had an end-of-season ski trip there a few years ago and were riding fresh powder at the end of April – there are a lot of similar stories each season!)

There are limitations, though, and the ski area isn’t as large as you’ll find in many other Austrian resorts. The Silvretta Ski Arena offers enough scope and scale for most people – but really mile-hungry skiers and snowboarders will find themselves covering old ground over a week. There’s not a huge amount of really steep terrain, and there are quite a few Austrian resorts better suited to families – Obergurgl and St Anton, to name but two. With all that said, it’s an amazing place to visit.
