Hot music to melt Jungfrau snow

Deep Purple created a blizzard at last year's festival

(Keystone Archive)

The organisers of the "SnowpenAir Concert" will again be presenting an all-star line-up. Topping the bill, the German group, the Scorpions, will be performing their hits below the mighty peaks of the Jungfrau, Eiger and Mönch.

It's the fourth time the event has been held on the Kleine Scheidegg ridge above the Bernese Oberland resorts of Grindelwald and Wengen. This year, the Scorpions, will follow last year's star attraction, Deep Purple, in playing their many hits from the mountaintop.

The concert will be kicked off by the Munich rock band, the Spider Murphy Gang, considered at their best performing live.

The Swiss singer, Florian Ast, will give local fans a chance to sing along with some of his Swiss-German hits from his short, but successful career. Fittingly, his latest album is called "Spitz", which means peak or point.

Tickets cost SFr75 ($44) including the return train journey with the Jungfrau Railways. The railway is also offering a special weekend ticket, including one or two nights accommodation and a weekend ski pass.
