Born out of an ambitious dream to throw parties on top of the world and create a festival alive with a sense of adventure and a feeling of freedom, Rise festival is considered Europe’s craziest winter festivals today. Set in the award winning French ski resort of Les 2 Alpes Rise, the festival is designed with an element of adventure instilled each day from raves at 3200m, to secret mountainside parties around roaring fire pits.
By day, festival-goers take in some of the best ski and snowboarding runs on offer and by night, a selection of some of the biggest and best electronic names transform the venue by playing throughout the night to a backdrop of the stunning French mountainside.
There are so many different places to watch DJs. One off the highlights is a secret venue reachable only by walking up a mountain. It’s by invite only but if you’re lucky enough to go there’s roaring fire and a 300 cap dance area. Another is the Pano bar, a day time spot where you can dance in ski boots while looking over the slopes.
3rd edition of the week long Rise Festival commences between 10th -17th December 2016 at Les Deux Alpes, France.
Previous names to have played here include the likes of Artwork, Blonde, Gorgon City, B-Traits, Skream, Ms Dynamite, Hannah Wants, Eton Messy, Jackmaster, High Contrast, London Electricity, Applebottom, So Solid Crew and many more.
