Karl Lagerfeld named Beth Ditto as a style icon on account of her highly individual, self-assured manner. Musical support for Ditto is provided by band members Nathan Howdeshell (bass/guitar) and Hannah Blilie (drums), who get fans going with hits like ‘Heavy Cross' and ‘Love Long Distance'.
The concert starts at 6 p.m. Anyone who wants to be there doesn't have to buy any expensive tickets - entry is free with a valid ski pass.
Winter athletes can take to the pistes in Ischgl the day before, since skiing starts up here on 26th November - with the best snow conditions, 238 kilometres of pistes, 41 lift facilities and many new features in the ski area.
