In spring, the ski season in Ischgl shows its finest side thanks to a special altitude – 90% of the Silvretta Arena is above 2,000 m and offers perfectly groomed slopes, beautiful spring snow conditions and skiing fun with spring-like temperatures until the beginning of May. In addition, the "Spring Blanc" event series presents a colourful programme full of culinary delights and music provides a great excuse to spend spring on the slopes. On 30 March 2023, the event kicks off with the second Top of the Mountain Spring Concert, where British singer-songwriter George Ezra will make his Ischgl debut on the legendary "Ischgl Stage". The 29-year-old's repertoire includes well-known hits such as "Budapest", "Shot Gun", “Barcelona” and "Blame It On Me" as well as songs from his new album "Gold Rush Kid". The open-air live concert starts at 13.00. in the middle of the skiing area at the Idalp at 2,320 metres above sea level.
About George Ezra
Born in Hertford, UK, in 1993, singer-songwriter George Ezra was discovered at the age of 19 and invited directly onto the stage at the Glastonbury Festival. Global success followed with his hit single "Budapest" and the other big songs "Barcelona", "Cassy O" and "Blame It On Me", the two million-selling albums "Wanted On Voyage" (2014) as well as "Staying At Tamara's" (2018), both of which reached the top of the British charts, and finally the Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist. The singer with the deep, soulful-bluesy voice used the pandemic time productively, writing new songs and working on his podcast, for which he got stars like Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Lili Allen, Nile Rodgers, Ellie Goulding and Tom Jones in front of the microphone. His current album "Gold Rush Kid" —which he will also perform in Ischgl — secured Ezra's position as one of the most successful British artists of the last decade.
