Returning to Bansko, Bulgaria from 8-14th March 2014, Horizon Festival has already confirmed leading artists such as Roy Davis Jr. KiNK, dBridgeApplebottom and fLako for 2014; retaining Horizon’s status as a forward thinking music festival, while offering a slightly broader spectrum from the dance genre including House, Techno, Garage, Bass & Groove.

This first announcement displays the breadth of music available at Horizon 2014, embodying the genres above and incorporating both trailblazers on the underground scene, as well as some rather more established acts who offer a nod to the heritage of dance music.

Horizon 2014 will once again offer the best value snow festival around; Prices start at only £279pp for 6 days and nights of cutting edge electronic music across 30 incredible parties at 20 unique venues, 6 nights of accommodation with pool or spa use and 5-day ski pass with access to the whole mountain.

Thoughtful extras for Horizon 2014 include free daily yoga classes in Bansko, spa packages, discounted ski/snowboard lessons for festival-goers and a dedicated festival hotel (The Gardenia), bringing a 24hour element to the party. There are also pro snowboarder freestyle demonstrations at the newly erected snow park, The Bansko Banquet and other festival favourites to look forward to.

The mountain itself is the perfect snowy playground for all abilities, with something for everyone in the terrain department, barely any lift queues & affordable hire prices. Opening the festival to all-comers, there are also packages for non-skiing other halves, which include the ‘Horizon Festival Refresh & Revitalize’ Spa & Beauty package, and all mountain stages are accessible by bus.

Horizon 2014 sees two secluded mountain stages, located just off the piste, with staging and production attaining heights not seen last year. The Secret Hotel has a newly erected Snowboard Park with pro rider demos and trick tips throughout the day. Still the place to be for Après Ski, with music from 2pm everyday, festival-goers can ski into The Secret Hotel at any time to catch some slick tricks and good sounds.

A further mountain stage just off the piste, The Forest Stage, is a spectacular yet secluded arena that uses the surrounding snow to enhance the atmosphere and deepen the sound. New to 2014, The Forest Stage has an eclectic selection of DJs and live acts from 2pm everyday.

The atmosphere at both The Forest Stage & The Secret Hotel heats up throughout the afternoon, bringing a banging warehouse style party vibe (minus the walls) to the mountain later in the evening. You can ski into both mountain stages or get the bus up from town – it’s up to you.  

The party continues each night in town across 20 spectacular venues that include the Ibiza-like, multi level Euphoria, the Medieval Banquet Hall at The Gardenia, the cave-like Oxygen, disco ball heaven The Club and more. The music carries on until 6am, leaving just enough time to catch some zzzs before hitting the slopes all over again. No time for a hangover and certainly no place for one in the fresh mountain air.

Presenting a stunning backdrop to the festival, Bansko is located in the beautiful Pirin National Park mountain region in the South-West corner of Bulgaria. With a strong infrastructure for mountain sports, over 140 local restaurants, countless bars and clubs and an already established nightlife, Bansko provides a uniquely eclectic base for an urban festival. The friendly locals, reasonable prices, and lively atmosphere mean you can dip into the local scene any time for some serious wining & dining, home-grown music, vigorous dancing and traditional fun.

Bridging the gap between high-end ski festivals and a classic British festival; Horizon Festival guarantees 75kms of slopes at heights of 2,600m, no mud, no queues, affordable prices, and an incredible atmosphere. Prices start at just £279 per person, which includes 6 nights accommodation with pool or spa use, 5-day lift pass and access to over 30 Horizon Festival parties.
