Innovation has long been renowned as one of the greatest institutions for drum & bass music in the world. Having thrown parties all over the UK and also in Barcelona at their annual Innovation In The Sun party, they are fully seasoned when it comes to picking selectors for one hell of a party.
This year, Innovation will be moving to frosty new pastures in Andorra, where Innovation In The Snow will be hosting three days of music, beginning on the 17th of March. The resort that will be hosting the goings on is the Pas De La Casa, which is located up the Pyrenees mountain range surrounded by 210km of ski slopes. There will be lessons for all levels of skiers and snowboarders, so don’t worry if you’re scared of not being good enough, or being too good, there will be sloped to suit you.
If skiing isn’t your thing, there will be several other daytime activities to get fully immersed in including paintballing, snowmobiles, dogsledding, ice driving or simpler less testing things like building snowmen.
On to the music and there really is no other line up like it as Innovation has picked the cream of the crop in drum & bass and jungle. DJ Hype, Dillinja, super group SASASAS, The Prototypes, Grooverider, Nicky Blackmarket, Brockie, Macky Gee, Frankee, DJ Guv, Dominator and Modified Motion are just a handful of the selectors who will be appearing, all alongside a specially curated MC line up, featuring Harry Shotta, Skibadee and much more.
The resort itself contains several accommodation options as well as a number of bars and clubs that will be hosting pre parties, the main events and after parties, which will be announced closer to the festival.
