Concert in the snow
The most important aspect of my trip was an open air concert in the snow! Snowpenair, an annual concert that takes place at Kleine Scheidegg at a height of 2061m, a few train stops before Jungfrau. The year 2011’s artist line-up saw James Blunt (whose most popular song remains ‘Beautiful’), retro band Kool and the Gang and the Spider Murphy Gang, a German band from Munich. More than 14,000 people stood on the snow-covered ground and swayed to the groove of the different kinds of music these bands performed.
It was even more special for me since this was the first concert I ever attended. Even in the freezing weather, this concert was as crazy as any other: James Blunt dived into the crowd only to be carried away by his fans, and as you hear about most concerts, this one too had a woman throwing her bra on the stage! Plus, I enjoyed the true blue VIP treatment being from the media, which included free food, coffee and beer. So much for a ‘first’ concert, no?
