The Automatic

Story by Jack Foley

BATTERSEA Power Station will be transformed into a real life ski resort featuring the biggest real snow jump ever made in the UK, with a live music line up to match, between October 23 and 26, 2008.

The world’s best snowboarders and skiers will descend on the banks of the River Thames to take part in the highest profile snow and music festival ever seen in the UK.

FSO4 Freeze, sponsored by LG, is an exciting new event that combines the best of skiing and boarding with live music and entertainment.

Amongst the amazing array of acts set to play in the 10,000 capacity live music arena is indie anthem giants The Enemy, Cardiff rockers The Automatic (pictured), New Wave Hollywood exports Iglu & Hartly as well as The Cuban Brothers and The Anomalies.

Completing the highly anticipated first announcement is Haunts, Cage The Elephant, Trouble Andrew, Les Gars, I Say Marvin and Underground Heroes.

Headlining on Thursday, October 23 is Hip Hop/ Funk outfit The Cuban Brothers. Having began cruising the UK club scene with their passionate attitude to partying and performing, the Brothers quickly moved up the ranks reaping huge respect world over. Their unique and comedic approach to live shows is the perfect ice breaker for an action packed 4 days at FSO4 Freeze.

The Enemy is currently in the studio working on the follow up to 2007’s We’ll Live and Die in These Towns which went all the way to No 1 in the UK album chart.

Fresh from appearances at the mighty Glastonbury and Reading & Leeds festivals the band are ready to take on the winter beginning with a Headline slot on Friday, 24.

Joining the Friday bill is Welsh four-piece The Automatic, currently reaping the success of their most recent studio release This Is A Fix.

LA formed five piece Iglu & Hartley, meanwhile, bring their new wave blend of pop and hip hop – as evidenced in current single In This City – to FSO4 Freeze on Saturday, October 25.

In addition to the music, there will be mountain parties and an opportunity for VIPs to get the best in ‘après ski’ in the LG Lounge, where you can chill and watch the competition in comfort.

Other attractions will include a genuine ski village with shops lining the main resort ‘high street’.
