THE ULTIMATE WEEK IN THE MOUNTAINS
Snowboxx Festival returns to the ski mecca of Avoriaz from the 18th – 25th March 2017. Nestled in the heart of the Port du Soleil region, the resort is the highest in the area and boasts a history of some of the best snowfall in the alps. The Snowboxx Village is also back with an increased 5 nights of live music in a stunning outdoor location in the heart of the resort.
Expect to see a series of unforgettable artists, off the wall festival features and a host of exciting new additions.
Snowboxx has sold out for the past 4 years and with the demand increasing year on year it’s hard to see the event bucking this trend. 2016 saw the likes of Sigma, Stormzy, Grandmaster Flash and Blonde take to the incredible main stage setting. Anticipation for next year’s announcements is already building with the first of many lineup announcements due to pop in September this year. The organisers have given some insight into some whopping new additions to the festival features including Mountainside Bottomless Brunches, Feast On The Piste and we have heard a few whispers about some surprise announcements to come. All this on top of the late night club shows, awesome apres and a resort with 650km of powder, we couldn’t be any more excited to get stuck in.
Grab your tickets now at www.snowboxx.com with packages starting at £300.
AVORIAZ – HOME OF SNOWBOXX
Avoriaz is a winter wonderland resort. The town is completely pedestrianised allowing you to ski straight to your door in most accommodations, and the main forms of transport around the village is on foot or by horse drawn carriage. As a ski region Avoriaz is unrivalled, with access to nearly 650km of pistes in the Port Du Soleil region, customers will have a huge variety of runs to cruise! It also boasts 6 snow parks, including the world famous Burton Stash Park, which is built from all natural materials and where features are carved into art pieces.
THE SNOWBOXX VILLAGE RETURNS
The Snowboxx Village was the centerpiece of 2016. Next year The Village will be open all week with 5 nights of major artists performing in an idyllic location. The Festival Village will be almost double the size with a host more artists, bigger bars and of course a backdrop like no other festival in the world. The Village takes inspiration from the more traditional festival format of an open air arena complete with food stalls, bars, features and of course a cracking lineup.
FEATURES, FESTIVITIES AND OF COURSE – APRES

The variety of different events and activities across the week is what makes the festival stand head and shoulders above the rest as the ultimate all round winter festival.
