Rock the Pistes Returns in 2014!
Fri 25 October 13
After last year’s success with awesome performances by BB Brunes, Cali, Caravan Palace, Skip the Use and Superbus, this year’s Rock the Pistes Festival is taking a fresh approach... We’re making room for UK groups, and plenty of big names from the French pop-rock scene.
THE CONCEPT: LIVE CONCERTS ON THE SKI SLOPES
A ski-pass is all you’ll need to watch your favourite acts, so it’s time to put your board on and head for the different venues! We’ll be building one-off stages on the mountain for the five headline acts to perform their early-afternoon concerts.
This is what makes the festival unique in Europe: five days of great music, with a second concert at a new venue at the end of the afternoon, an Off/fringe festival each evening and a workshop for emerging talent.
Venues: The concerts will take place every day in a different resort: Avoriaz, Champery-Les Crosets, Châtel, Morgins, Morzine-Les Gets. This year’s host resort is Les Gets.
The first 3 headline acts for the 2014 festival include: Ben L'Oncle Soul, Mad Professorr and the Robotics and Mass Hysteria.
