After the comeback of the Billabong Air & Style Innsbruck-Tirol 08 the successful story of the Billabong Air & Style will enter its second chapter on January, 31 st, 2009.

Preparations for the progression of the Billabong Air & Style in the Bergisel Stadium are moving forward rapidly. The format proved itself: the biggest Quarter Pipe worldwide, 24 Top-Riders and two excellent Live-Acts will (again) make the event an unforgettable evening.

Besides snowboard legend Terje Haakonsen and the great Finnish division around Antti Autti and Risto Mattila, the super talents Peter König and Werner Stock from Austria and Colin Frei from Switzerland will show their skills. More riders will be announced in the next days. The audience can be assured to see the crème de la crème of snowboarding in Innsbruck again.

The incredible event in February 08 impressed the international snowboard world. After starting as a Swatch TTR 5Star Event it has now moved up into the small elite group of 6Star events - also due to the cancellation of the Air & Style Event in Munich. This means that the event is one of the six best in the world. On top of that the Billabong Air & Style 09 is presently the biggest contest in Europe.

And that is not all – the Indie-Rock-Band Mando Diao will perform live as the headliner. The five Swedish musicians have been performing since 1999 and will definitely rock the stadium. The second top act will be announced soon.

Today, October 15th the official ticket presale starts. Grandstand tickets are available for € 34,00, VIP tickets are available for € 120,00 (both plus presale fee). The tickets can be bought on the official Air & Style homepage or at Ö-Ticket. The Bergisel Stadium has a maximum capacity of 13.000 spectators and as seen at the last Billabong Air & Style 08 it will very likely be sold out soon.
