Rise Festival is keeping us on our toes in recent weeks as they have just announced the first artists that will be taking to Les Deux Alpes during the weeklong party amongst the French mountains. This announcement comes just days after Rise announced the first brands that they would be collaborating with across the many stages that will be in some of the most otherworldly locations imaginable.
The first of the artist announcements come from Rinse, the radio station and music label that has expanded its genre interests to far across the dance spectrum in recent years. The Rise stage will welcome Jackmaster, a DJ who aptly plays a wide range of sounds from disco through soul and all the way to techno. He will be joined by Skream, Axel Boman and Artwork with more to be announced.
The young and fresh Eton Messy crew will be bringing Blonde, The Goldenboy, Toyboy & Robin and Waverly to one of Rise’s outdoor stages whilst Hospitality will be taking over two days with their drum & bass craziness, represented by label spearhead London Elektricity as well as High Contrast, Etherwood, Metrik, SPY and MCs Dynamite and Lowqui.
There are still many more names to be announced with Ibiza Rocks’ Shelter and WAR! Stages still under wraps, not to mention further details concerning other exciting areas like the ice disco, the Snowmageddon arena and the yeti’s cabin. With these first announcements however, tickets will be in high demand and are likely to sell out in quick succession.
