Sunshine, fresh snow and 12,000 beaming concertgoers: On 30 March, a good-humoured George Ezra opened the Spring Blanc event series at the "2nd Top of the Mountain Spring Concert" in Ischgl. In front of a snowy mountain backdrop and in the middle of the white Silvretta Arena, the British singer-songwriter gave his guests unforgettable moments in the snow on the legendary Ischgl Stage with songs like "Budapest", "Shot Gun" or "Cassy O".
From now on, a colourful programme full of culinary delights and music awaits sun-skiers. Snow guarantee included, because thanks to the special altitude - 90 percent of the cross-border Silvretta Arena is above 2,000 metres - "white" skiing fun is guaranteed here until the end of the ski season on 1 May. "We are more than satisfied with the course of the winter season so far, with perfect snow conditions throughout. Already at the beginning of the season we were able to record several very busy days with over 20,000 winter sports enthusiasts in the Silvretta Arena," Günther Zangerl, CEO of Silvretta Seilbahn AG, is pleased to report. "We also want to take this momentum with us for the next four weeks in the course of our Spring Blanc event series. Our current snow situation offers ideal conditions for this," continues Alexander von der Thannen, chairman of TVB Paznaun - Ischgl.
New musical highlight at Spring Blanc: the Spring Blanc song "Higher" created by Ischgl house artist/producer Marvin Aloys and singer/songwriter Sydney Jo Jackson. All info: www.ischgl.com.

Higher - Ischgl artist produces Spring Blanc song for Ischgl
Marvin Aloys, grandson of Ischgl tourism pioneer Günther Aloys, lives in Munich and plays in renowned clubs between Ibiza, Berlin and Manchester. Ischgl's mountain scenery always draws him back to his homeland, and he is particularly pleased to be able to dedicate a song to it now: "'Higher' is a homage to the impressive landscape of Ischgl and to electronic music, which brings people from all over the world together and connects them. The song is an example of the current trends in the music scene and shows how music can connect people regardless of their origin and language." For the song "Higher", Marvin Aloys brought the British singer/songwriter Sydney Jo Jackson, classified under "funk and dance", to Ischgl. For Sydney Jo Jackson, the song "Higher" embodies motivation and the drive to achieve great things. It is also about supporting each other and coming together to experience special moments. The song is available to play on Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer. The music video is available at www.youtube.com.
