Jan Delay

Jan Delay plays on 5 April 2015 in the heart of the ski area. Those who expect funk and soul will be surprised: The music star from Hamburg rocks with guitars in the snow.

Tight suit, leopard shirt and hat: Jan Delay redefines rock music. Rock music? That’s right. The Hamburg exceptional artist may retain his style and uncanny knack for rhyming, but is switching the genre. Away from soul, towards rocking guitar beats. What it sounds like? That's what skiers will hear at the Top of the Mountain Easter Concert in Ischgl: On 5 April 2015, Jan Delay will be playing on the world-famous Idalp stage – where Robbie Williams performed most recently. "Wacken", "Liebe" and "St. Pauli" from his new album "Hammer & Michel" provide the soundtrack for a rocking Easter festival at 2,300 metres altitude. Free admission for holders of a valid ski pass. A day-pass is from 45 Euro, a two-day ski pass can be had from 88 Euro. 



Skiing in the morning, rocking in the afternoon
Spring-like temperatures, sun and corn snow – Easter i the best time for skiing. Add to this 238 kilometres of pistes and a rock concert in the snow. That is Ischgl. On Easter Sunday, Jan Delay will be rocking with his band Disko No. 1 at 13:00 on the Idalp in the heart of the ski area. A perfect opportunity for skiers to enjoy morning skiing and loosen up the muscles in the afternoon with some groovy rock beats in the snow. The new 3-S Pardatschgratbahn cable car will take you into the ski area. It ferries winter sports fans directly from the town centre up to the 2,624 metre high Pardatschgrat in under ten minutes. With 1,251 metres in altitude, it covers the greatest difference in altitude worldwide. From the upper terminus of the Pardatschgratbahn cable car, it's just a few turns on the skis to the Idalp and the Top of the Mountain stage at 2,300 metres above sea level. 


Jan Delay reinvents himself - yet also remains true to himself 
Before the impressive alpine backdrop of the Silvretta, Jan Delay presents his rock songs for Easter. A bit of Lenny Kravitz, a piece of Ramones and lots of Nina Hagen and Udo Lindenberg – his fourth solo album "Hammer & Michel" packs a punch. If at first his playlist included hip-hop, reggae and soul, it's rock for raving, heavy metal for girls and punk for the stadiums. What remains is his style. And his twang. Altogether, this makes for a unique opus which has catapulted him into first place of the German album charts in 2014. With this he builds on his previous successes, seeing that both "Mercedes Dance" and "Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Soul" headed the German charts. To this come countless awards: Echo, Comet, 1 Live Krone. His lyrics strike a chord, provoke and reconcile. In the end, he remains an optimist who encapsulates in his song "St. Pauli" what is set to move an audience of more then 10,000 on Easter Sunday in Ischgl. "All things considered, we have every reason to dance".
