There are some incredible music festivals happening in 2017 that are completely mountain-orientated, and we thought giving you a breakdown of some of our favourites was probably the bright thing to do because, well, mountain festivals are sick! Check out our guide to some of Europe’s best, and get ready for a trip that’s so much more than just hitting the slopes…

Snowbombing

The Macdaddy of snow festivals in Europe, Snowbombing should be experienced by every music-lover come powder-junkie at least once. Europe’s biggest snow and music festival never fails to disappoint, with a killer mix of some of the biggest and brightest bands and DJs, all-night parties and spring laps to top it all off. Add to that their mountain-top and Igloo stages, and you’ve got yourself another bucket-list event to get ticked off.

When & Where

3-8th of April in Mayrhofen, Austria.

Snowboxx

The newer kid on the block is fast becoming the favourite with a world class line-up, epic mountain runs and activities you couldn’t dream up. It’s increasing popularity shows no sign of slowing down with the festival selling out the past 3 years in a row, and tickets are going fast for 2017. Mountainside bottomless brunches? Check. Intimate Igloo raves? Check. Paintball fights in the snow? Check. Where do I sign up?

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled for Melon when you are there! We will be soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying all Snowboxx has to offer at our Melon stand, stop by and say hi!

Sölden

Horizon

For those of us wanting that memorable winter festival that doesn’t break the bank, look no further than Horizon. Guaranteed dirty nights with an emphasis on garage (along with the usual house and techno), Horizon’s impressive attention to detail means even the most financially-conscious festival-goer can live like a king without stressing over their bank balance. Win win!

Caprices

The most underground festival that makes the list packs a line-up with sky-high scene credentials (just like the MDRNTY Tent, which can be found at 1500m). Situated in Switzerland’s French-speaking Alps, this incredibly ethical and environmentally-friendly festival is perfect for those seeking a trip filled with stunning views and all-level pistes, finished off with some of the best techno & house music Europe has to offer. Music to our ears!

When & Where

6-9th April in Crans-Montana, Switzerland.

Don’t Miss


Leon, Ben Klock & Mano Le Tough.
