The most significant European winter music festival, “The Big Snow“, moves from Andorra to Serbia and will be organised at Mt. Kopaonik on March 23-29, 2012.
The Festival was launched two years ago by the largest global tourist agency, Thomas Cook. The EXIT team and the Association of Hotels of Mt. Kopaonik, supported by MK Mountain Resorts, public company Skijališta Srbije and the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development of the Government of the Republic of Serbia, will join the organisation of the Festival as of 2012
This music event will gather renowned global, regional and local music names, who will attract several thousands of guests from all over Europe. Especially for visitors for Serbia and the region, the Festival organisers have provided exceptionally favourable accommodation arrangements.
In the last two years, “The Big Snow“ has grown into one of the most prominent European winter music festivals. With its entertainment capacities and beautiful nature, Mt. Kopaonik has been selected as the destination where this Festival can continue with its fast growth and development, and help the development of winter tourism of Serbia. “The Big Snow“ Festival is designed to provide good music and winter sports lovers with an exceptional opportunity to combine their two passions into good entertainment, with the contribution of the unique atmosphere of Mt. Kopaonik, the best preserved winter secret of Europe – underlined Ms Teresa Walsh, Managing Director of Club 18-30 in Thomas Cook.
It is estimated that, owing to The Big Snow Festival, Serbian tourism will record revenues of more than EUR5 million in the next three years, while the value of international promotion of skiing tourism of Serbia will be several times higher.
Bearing in mind the relevance of foreign and local partners participating in the organisation of the Festival at Mt. Kopaonik, this event will certainly help position Serbia at the map of important European skiing destinations, particularly at the market of Western Europe.
It is important to note that The Big Snow Festival will significantly contribute to revenues from tourism in local and foreign currencies, as well as to the promotion of mountain tourism of Serbia in Europe and the world. In addition, we expect this event to enable young people from Serbia and the world to rediscover why Mt. Kopaonik is one of the most beautiful mountains in the region we can be proud of – underlined Mr Goran Petković, State Secretary in the Ministry of Economy and Regional Development, adding that it is privilege for our country to host this Festival at Mt. Kopaonik, particularly when a global tourist agency such as Thomas Cook recognises the opportunity for cooperation with partners from Serbia and decides to relocate this Festival to our country.
The Festival will gather more than 100 music performers, led by the famous Basement Jaxx, double winners of the prestigious award for the best global music act. They will be accompanied by DJ Fresh, Eddy Tample Morris, Judge Jules, Micky Slim and other foreign performers, while the local scene will be represented by Disciplin A Kitchme, Rambo Amadeus, Darkwood Dub, Eyesburn, Vrooom, and many others…
It is important to note that this is only a part of a line-up of musicians who will perform at the popular Mt. “Kop” on March 23-29, 2012, and that the whole line-up will be announced at the beginning of the winter season, in early December 2011.
As of today, when the promotion of the Festival in Serbia starts officially, a seven-day travel arrangement, including accommodation and a set of tickets, will be available at a gift price of EUR89, or EUR129 with a ski pass included. Bearing in mind exceptionally attractive prices, top quality of the Festival and vicinity of the destination, the ski season will be most attractive at Mt. Kopaonik this winter.
