Swedish sound from The Hives and Berlin party sound from K.I.Z.

You can expect two musical highlights. The Hives will rock the Bergisel Stadium as the headliner. In 2007 the Air & Style veterans delivered an outstanding performance in Munich. Trademark of the Swedens: always perfect outfits and a powerful appearance on stage.
The guys from Sweden will get support from Berlin. K.I.Z. will come to Innsbruck with their Rap/Rock sound. K.I.Z. – that means provoking lyrics paired with dark humor and irony. The four-headed Hip-Hop formation, who released their new album Sexismus gegen Rechts this year in July will cause a stir at the Bergisel Stadium on the 5th of December.

Official After Show Party in the location Hafen/Innsbruck
An event like the Billabong Air & Style deserves to end duly and this time the place to be is Hafen (translated: Habour): on three floors you can party and dance. The first floor will be rocked by crossover legends Clawfinger, who will still remember on the early days of Air & Style – they were one of the first bands in the Bergisel Stadium in 1995. The Swedes will get supported by Lumen from Russia. The second floor is all about clubbing, with INNTAKT featuring DJ SOMA, DAN VANS, LARS BOOB and DJane SAHA. But of course there’s also some space for you to chill out after all the hard dancing and partying in the lounge on the third floor.

The tickets cost 15 Euros (plus presale fees). All information and presale offices on air-style.com
