Altitude Festival Returns for 2015!
8th Feb 2015
Hurtling headlong down the slopes, Altitude Comedy Festival returns to the chocolate box surrounds of Mayrhofen, Austria from 23rd-27th March, taking a cavalcade of clowns out on the piste. Featuring the world’s top comedians and the most exciting new acts splitting sides worldwide, all up-close and personal, Altitude is a unique chance to catch the very biggest names in some of Europe’s most charming and intimate venues.
Altitude Curator Andrew Maxwell said: “Every year when we start putting our line-up together, I pull out my trusty little black book of clowns and maniacs and go straight to B for Bailey, and finally, after all these years, he’s said yes! Bill Bailey at Altitude. COME ON! Add to that the genius of Sean Lock and you’re already well on the way to a legendary year. I couldn’t be more excited.”
Whether you’re a group of friends hitting the slopes by day and looking for fun all night or a canoodling couple on a romantic break, Altitude has got all the entertainment you could ever need within one of Europe’s most reasonably priced resorts.
This year Altitude is very pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the UK’s leading independent activity holiday company, Neilson. With more 37 years of holiday experience under their belts, Neilson is committed to providing the best choice of resorts and highest quality service. They are offering packages which include return flights & resort transfers, plus seven nights bed & breakfast accommodation at the Mayrhofen Guesthouses from just £399pp, plus add on the festival wristband for the earlybird price of £155pp. Be quick though as these prices are only around until the 9th of February! Head to Neilson.co.uk for more information.
And if you like a delightful bit of bit of splendour when it comes to catching the world’s best comedians in our Tyrolean haven, the grab yourself a VIP Altitude Ticket which not only gives you entrance to all Altitude shows, but also a free bottle of wine (or up to four beers) for the Gala shows, reserved seating, meet and greets with the comedians, a chance to compete in the clown hill race, and a splendid Altitude t-shirt.
