Festival season doesn’t need to stop and hibernation doesn’t need to begin when the sun goes down. The music scene is still well and truly alive and festival season can be a year-round affair giving us something to look forward to, at the bleakest time of year! Here are some Winter Faves we’ve put together for you…
Believe it or not there are so many European Winter festivals.
Let’s start with the UK itself…
THE WINTER SOCIAL – February 2017, Maidstone, United Kingdom
Passed Headliners include Adam Beyer, Nina Kraviz & Joris Voorn.
It’s an intimate setting and now one of the UK’s best-loved underground dance brands, this winter party is the perfect chance to unite dance lovers while the nights are long!
SNOWBOX FESTIVAL – 18 – 25 March 2017, Avoriaz, France
Passed Headliners include Sigma, Stormzy, Blonde…
The undisputed king of the slopes, Snowboxx puts on the kind of lineups that would make any ground-based festival blush with pride! Snowboxx is a recent addition to the ski-dancing crowd, and the challenge from this point on will be keeping hold of the small-town charm whilst establishing the festival’s profile. Big name artists play on intimate stages! Sounds like perfection to us!
HORIZON FESTIVAL – Andorra in the Pyrenees Mountains between France and Spain, March.
Horizon Festival closes out the ski season, with headline sets from Craig Charles and Mumdance last year. There’s a pre-party in Barcelona on 25 March, where you can take road trip onwards to Andorra! Bring that on!
