Over recent years, the festival market has completely exploded, with new festivals seemingly popping up all over the place right across the UK and further a field. Looking abroad, there has been a significant dominance from summer events with Croatia currently ruling the roost when it comes to electronic music events, so the arrival of a new ‘winter’ festival is a real breath of fresh
Although not strictly held in the winter months, Horizon Festival will take over the snow covered mountain ranges of south western Bulgaria at the end of March 2013, combining snow sports and some of the best electronic artists available. Located approximately 160km from the capital, Sofia, the Bansko ski resort lies at the foot of the Pirin Mountains offering an incredible backdrop for a serious winter music festival. And with regular direct flights to Sofia from the UK and several convenient airport transfers you needn’t worry about the often inevitable ‘pull your hair out‘ moments on the way to a festival.
Already a social hotspot, Bansko will be completely transformed to host some of the biggest acts in dance over 6 days of noon to dusk partying. 23rd - 29th March 2013 will see mountain raves in bars and spaces all across the slopes, taking in everything from future garage, to disco to techno.
The brainchild of Jack Robinson, Co-Founder and Director of the much loved, Outlook and Dimensions Festivals in Croatia, Horizon will include the likes of Jackmaster, Alex Arnout, Mark E, Kink (Live), Waifs & Strays, Crazy P, Ben Pearce, Wookie, Klose One, Phaeleh and loads more (full lineup can be found below).
In it’s debut year, Horizon Festival is set to take the ski festival scene to a new level in a beautiful, alternative location.
