Forget shorts. Forget floral headbands and cheap beer and getting your forehead sunburned in the plastic littered grass in some Dublin suburb. Why go for the conventional when you can have something so different, yet, if we say so ourselves, so much better? What, you might ask? Rise Festival set in the snowy and fabulous resort of Les Deux Alpes, we say. Think snow, think whopper sound systems, think top acts, think skiing and snowboarding, think great crowds and even better views, but most of all, think action packed days and adventure packed nights and think brilliance and you're on the right track.
Consider this, could there possibly be a better way to shake off a sneaky little hangover than indulging in some fresh as fresh air in the some of the best mountain tops our planet has to offer? Than hopping up on a chairlift and taking in some of the finest views in Europe (not that we're biased or anything)? Oh and not only will you have the always stunning and ever photogenic Alps at your very disposal, we haven't even considered the best part of all yet- the festival itself.
Rise Festival you see isn't like any other festival, as you might have established by now. This is a place where inhibitions are tossed aside and fun is the only thing on the menu. With a line up including Ms. Dynamite, Blonde, Skream, So Solid Crew, Applebottom, Eton Messy and many, many more, there's something for everyone of every taste and requirement. And once the acts leave the stage, fear not, there's always a party happening in some cosy corner or little nook, not to mention numerous bars in which to mingle and keep the party going, Mountain top style.
So if snow, skiing, amazing music, non-stop partying, the freshest of fresh air, meeting an abundance of fun, like-minded people, hot drinks, cold drinks, the best Instagram opportunities you'll ever have at your disposal and a once in a lifetime partying experience all sound right up your street (and if not, then, are you ok?), then Rise Festival is just the thing for you. Meet you at the top!
