It’s all going on in Avoriaz this winter. Back in the summer we announced that Transition Snow, the sister festival of Snowbombing, is launching in the resort this December. Earlier this week Red Bull’s Crashed Ice announced that a Riders Cup race will take place in Avoriaz in January. And today we’re announcing the musical line-up for Snowboxx, which is relocating to Avoriaz from Alpe d’Huez between 12th and 19th March 2016. Winter 2016 is going to be huge.
Grandmaster Flash will headline the 4000 capacity festival, with a massive performance on a specially erected stage in the very centre of Avoriaz. The event will be ticket only and promises to bring an incredible atmosphere to the Portes du Soleil’s highest resort.
Other acts on the confirmed line-up include Mike Skinner (off of The Streets), Sigma, Blonde and Stormzy. Performances will take place on the main stage inside the Snowboxx festival centre, or in the Salle de Festival within the Office de Tourisme.
Snowboxx promise to bring a massive festival atmosphere to Avoriaz, which is probably why the event has been a sell-out over the last three years. Holiday makers can take advantage of exclusive Snowboxx packages, which start at £339 for flight inclusive deals, while locals and seasonaires will be able to buy wristband-only packages from January onwards.
