Overview.

Snowboxx Festival is a week-long raving and snowsports holiday rolled into one in France’s breathtaking snowy Alpine resort of Avoriaz. The vast ski area (the Portes du Soleil region) is the world’s largest, where you can enjoy excellent snow conditions, legendary après at La Folie Douce.

Add in bottomless brunch, flamboyant fashion, parties, comedy, zorbing, snowball fights and their infamous ‘skim pooling, and you’ve got a dream ski holiday recipe. 

Previous artists who have performed at Snowboxx events include the likes of Craig David’s TS5, Fatboy Slim, Jax Jones, Rudimental, High Contrast and more. 

But it’s not just the lineup that makes Snowboxx one of the most popular winter music festivals. The skiing caters for beginners and experts alike, with plenty of easy slopes and more challenging off-pistes to discover.

The Snowboxx Festival Venue.

Main stage

The incredible open-air arena right by the mountain. The Snowboxx ‘pièce de résistance’ is one-of-a-kind, hosting some of the biggest musical acts in the world, such as Faithless, within the fully pedestrianised party resort.

Après

Ski into the wildest party on the slopes. The après connoisseurs La Folie Douce deliver what’s possibly the best après in the world. Tabletop shenanigans and Neil Diamond worthy sing-alongs are the norms.

The enchanted forest

Take a snowcat to a secret forest site to be immersed in Foreverland’s Enchanted Forest, finished with striking decor and production.

Igloo après parties

Ever been debaucherous in an igloo before? Snowboxx Festival brings their favourite DJs to a fabulous location on the slopes, a real ice igloo. These ice huts are ski-in / ski-out, so you can arrive straight from the slope side games.

Bottomless brunches

The highest and most hilarious bottomless brunches of them all. Come for the Alpine breakfast and bottomless prosecco, stay for the all-morning party thrown by our DJs and hosts. Expect the unexpected.

The XX

Famously infamous. The XX is the largest indoor nightclub in the resort. The beating heart of late-night escapades and the perfect place to carry on the party until the wee hours.

Avoriaz town

The neon-clad decks downtown are home to six bustling clubs, each with its take on a mountain night out. Cover bands, DJs, table dancing and ski shots are all offered.
