A highly motivated project of photographer Daniel Zangerl and snowboarder Daniel Driessler is going to be presented for the first time at the Kaunertal Opening 2009! EYE5’s aim is to combine sports photography and contemporary art. Different artists have been working or are still working on 5 snowboard shots. They either worked directly with the photography or got inspired by the shot to an independent piece of art. More details on: outlawzz.com/eye5
Besides there will be a movie corner in the restaurant for the first time, where different snowboard movies are being presented the whole day.
Concerts, movies & parties
Movie presentations, DJ’s and bands are in the center of attention on Friday and Saturday night of course. We are looking very much forward to the cheeky performance of the electro-punk performance of GROSSSTADTGEFLÜSTER straight out of Berlin and the party vibes of JAMARAM, I-SHINE plus one more act! The DISCODOGS DJ team from Cologne will rock the parties on both evenings afterwards.
