Ever wanted to go to a winter festival with the thrilling mix of house music and epic snow sports all in one place? Well, your prayers have been answered with France’s Rise Festival. Rise Festival is the ultimate snow party, taking place annually during the week before Christmas from December 14-21, 2019 in the Les Deux Alpes. Rage for seven days straight at this festival on the summit of the French Alps for an exhilarating experience filled with immaculate slopes and world-class headliners.
Rise and shred the pristine mountains on over 100 marked runs and 200km of pisted skiing during the day. By nightfall, head to the resort’s decked out bars, clubs and VIP venues for the Rise Festival’s all-night partying highlighted by legendary artists. The festival music features a wide array of electronic, dance, garage, house, disco and more during an all-encompassing alpine experience.
Rise Festival after-parties don’t stop until 5 a.m. and day-raging is highly encouraged. The best part is, if you miss a set because you were out on the slopes, artists will more than likely play again later that night. In addition to the artists featured on the Rise Fest schedule, discover secret adventure parties where access is only made possible by walking up a mountain by invite-only. Bounce around to all of the high-altitude arenas with enormous outdoor stages that deliver electronic sounds for every head-banging festival-goer.
