Pop superstar Katy Perry has been announced as the main act to launch Ischgl’s ski season at the end of November.
The giant ski area which straddles the border with Switzerland and shares its lifts and runs with neighbouring Samnaun has an increasingly long standing reputation for starting and ending it’s long winter season with free concerts starring top music acts from around the world.
Katy, 24, who was born in California and has topped the charts all over the world with her singles I Kissed A Girl and Hot N Cold, will perform in the Tirolean village on Saturday 28 November, the day after the lifts open on the 27th.
She follows in a long line of headline acts that have launched the season, including Leona Lewis and Gabriella Cilmi last year and prior to that Rihanna, The Corrs, Lionel Richie, Ronan Keating and Pussycat Dolls.Entrance to the concert, which kicks off at 6pm, will be by valid lift-pass. A one-day lift ticket for 28 November will be 55 Euros (covering skiing and the concert). A two-day lift ticket will cost 8 Euros.
Skiing opens at Ischgl, one of Austria’s highest and most snowsure resorts, on Friday 27 November.
