Kylie Minogue closes the winter season in Ischgl

Tomorrow Kylie Minogue will perform the season closing Top Of The Mountain concert in Ischgl. About 20,000 are expected to attend the concert, hold in a natural bowl near the top station of the main Silvrettabahn gondola from the centre of the village. The concert is free for those with lift-passes – necessary anyway to reach the venue.
Kylie follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig, including Elton John, The Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Lionel Richie, Leona Lewis, Scissor Sisters and Stereophonics.
In Ischgl you can find ultramodern lift and cable-car system (3 cable cars, 2 aerial cableways, 23 chairlifts and 12 draglifts) with a transport capacity of 78,500 persons per hour ensure skiing without queues (€120 million have been invested over the last five years). The new lifts managed by the Silvretta Seilbahn AG Company offer a high level of comfort and countless extras, such as heated seats in the new Fimbabahn cable car. The 235 kilometres and 506 hectares of slopes are all located on north-facing slopes assuring a reliable snow cover.
