AT A GLANCE

Started in 2011, this festival adventure was originally a wild concerts event. The idea: Informing the festival goers of the artist name and the location by text message on the day, giving a chance to discover the great playground in which they were set. Just 100 spectators were present for the first few concerts, today, 5000 to 7000 people meet here. It has become a landmark in the world of festivals and is the 1st to take place in the season. A fantastic atmosphere where dancing is done in ski boots, snow ball fights are XXL, and «Encore» calls are attempted with gloves on… A unique experience in a magical setting. French and international artists take the temporary stages, set above 1500m high between France and Switzerland. Each day a new place, therefore an event requiring impressive logistical skills. Stages and equipment are installed and taken down within a few hours to be transported to different locations sometimes at night. No margin for error, all transportation is made by piste basher and snowmobile… Past artists have included: Rag’N Bone Man, Deluxe, Izia, Lilly Wood and the Prick, Caravan Palace, Selah Sue, Charlie Winston, Breton, BBrunes…
