Electronic duo Chase and Status have had their Volvo Snowbombing set upgraded to a full live performance.

The Austrian festival, which takes place from 4-9 April in Mayrhofen, won 'Best Overseas Festival' at the UK Festival Awards.

The six-day event will also host Fatboy Slim, The Prodigy and Pendulum.

Of the festival, Chase and Status said: “Snow and music, always a good combination! We're really excited to be playing with such a great line up of artists at Snowbombing this year."

The event has recently announced a partnership with Volvo, who host the Volvo Snowbombing Road Trip, described as "a slightly unhinged, colourful, non-competitive musically-motivated motorcade which sees teams join a variety of music acts, celebrities and adventure seeking Snowbombers drive out to what is Europe's greatest show on snow."

2011 introduces the pan-European expansion of the road trip, with start lines in the UK, Germany, Holland and Italy.

The festival sees artists performing in venues including igloos and medieval barns, with 150 miles of pistes for punters to enjoy between bands.

Tickets are available now, starting at £279 including accommodation.
