Dizzee Rascal has replaced Snoop Dogg on the bill for Austria's Snowbombing festival.

'Drop it Like it's Hot' rapper Snoop was due to appear at the annual music and snowboarding event in the Austrian town of Mayrhofen but has pulled out after cancelling his 2012 European tour.

The 'Bonkers' hitmaker has stepped in to take his place and can't wait to step on stage and then hit the slopes.

Speaking about his performance, Dizzee said: ''I can't wait to get back to Snowbombing, the last time was wicked but this time will be even better, headlining the Forest stage.

''I've got a few new ones to try out on you and this time I'm actually going to learn to snowboard!''

The festival takes place in Eristoff Forest between April 9 and 14 with a line-up which also includes The Vaccines, Example, DJ Shadow and Chase and Status among others.

Dizzee, 27, is making a number of other festival appearances this summer including at the Splendour festival in Nottingham, England, as well as Wakestock in Cardigan Bay in Abersoch, Wales.
