Dreaming of throwing parties “on top of the world”, the organisers of Rise Festival have commandeered the French resort of Les Deux Alpes, arranging for adventure packed festivalling with mountainside parties and sky-touching raves. Back for a third year in 2016, the party brings together the world’s biggest DJs and artists for one of Europe’s biggest winter winter festivals, aimed at providing all of the nighttime entertainment that the mountain’s skiing and snowboarding pilgrims could possibly want.
Running for a whole week, the festival pulls together winter breakers from all over the continent, inviting them to congregate in the mountains between Grenoble and Briançon. A favourite spot for British skiers almost all year round, the beautiful setting makes for a vibrant atmosphere, and it is no surprise that previous years have been such a resounding success among attendees. This year running from December 10th until the 17th, Rise Festival could make the perfect pre-Christmas trip for any winter sports fanatics looking for an end of year party.
