Before Montaigne we have Alice Ivy, one of Australia’s best up and coming artists and festival favourite, who’ll be bringing her new age groove to the Snowy Mountains and The Faders, Australia’s favourite hip-hop DJ group who are sure to get the crowd pumping and jumping.

The region’s biggest fireworks display will light up Kosciuszko with big booms and masses of colour at 6pm while the king of carving Kenji Ogawa, tunes up his chisel and fires up the chainsaw to create an icy village sculpture that becomes the centrepiece of the popular GH Mumm Village Long Lunch on Sunday (sold out).
