Pop sensation Beyoncé will be the latest top act to star in Ischgl's traditional season-closing Top of the Mountain concert at the end of April.

As if the American star's booking wasn't enough to underline Ischgl's credentials as the Alps' most star-studded resort, the Scissor Sisters will headline the Tirolean resort's Easter mountaintop open air concert.

Beyoncé, whose hits include Dangerously In Love, Crazy In Love, Baby Boy and B'Day, will appear on a specially-constructed stage at Idalp, at the top of the main Silvrettabahn gondola from the village centre, on Sunday April 29. The gig, scheduled to start at 1pm, will be free for all with a lift pass (needed anyway to get to Idalp).

The Scissor Sisters, best known for the massive hit I Don't Feel Like Dancin', are an American band, formed in 2001, but virtually adopted by the Brits  so much so that they have even been considered as the UK's representatives in the Eurovision Song Contest!

They will appear, also at Idalp with a 1pm start, on Easter Monday, April 9.

Beyoncé and the Scissor Sisters follow a distinguished parade of top stars to appear at the Austrian resort, including Sir Elton John, Lionel Richie, Tina Turner, Sting, Jon Bon Jovi, Ronan Keating, Pink, The Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Bob Dylan, Enrique Iglesias and The Pussycat Dolls.

Ischgl, Austria

Snowboard Guide rating 9 out of 10 “Ischgl has plenty of good wide intermediate slopes, and hidden off-piste stashes. A super fast lift system, a season that lasts until May, great terrain park, and the most full on apres in the Alps, completes the package.”
