As the colder months wade in, the team at Splott Warehouse in Cardiff are preparing for something very special that will be bringing a taste of Chamoix-Mont-Blanc and St. Anton over to Wales on the 6th of December. For this winter celebration we will be travelling off Piste into a winter wonderland, built and transformed by the same guys who brought you The Colour Festival and Welcome To The Warehouse earlier this year.
As on these previous occasions, which saw such musical maestros as Chase & Status and Annie Mac DJ to masses of music lovers, there will be another array of musical excellence dropping in on us at the Cardiff Winter Festival, all to make sure, even though we will be amongst seriously cool surroundings, that we don’t end up too chilled out. This will be achieved through the teamwork of Radio 1s very own Zane Lowe, as well as DJ Fresh and Aluna George, who will be giving us a special live performance. As if that wasn’t enough, the number one UK artist Shift K3y will be continuing proceedings. Check out the full lineup below.

So, what can you expect from this winter transformation. A few spots of fake snow and some tinsel? Oh no. We’re talking full décor with mountainous skylines, an Après ski style bar, icicles that will be almost as big as the room and lots and lots of snow. To add to the atmosphere, the dress code for the night will be all out skiwear! This is of course optional; however if you don’t have any ski clothes, dress in your winter gear. Think Christmas jumpers and woolly hats.
The main festival will be taking place from 1pm and continuing on until 10pm, however the fun doesn’t stop there as there will also be an Afterparty taking place at a venue that is, as of yet, unannounced.
