Chamonix music festivals

Whilst Chamonix retains its reputation as an iconic ski destination, in the Spring, it’s also a bustling destination for some major music festivals.

Unlimited Festival 2019

There are two incredible events on offer in April 2019. Unlimited Festival (formerly the Black Crows Weekend) kicks-off on Tuesday 2 April and is an homage to all things electronica. This event has grown year on year and is set to be bigger and better than ever. What distinguishes it from similar events around the Alps is the location of the parties. They are set in some of the most stunning locations you’ll find anywhere on the globe like: the top station of the Aiguille du Midi lift; Plan Praz on the Brevent at sunset and new for 2019, the Skyway Monte Bianco in Courmayeur.

Unlimited Festival promises the opportunity to ski, party, repeat! This event takes place over six-day with sessions running at venues the length and breadth of Chamonix. Those include favourites like the Plan Joran lift station at Grands Montets, and down in Chamonix itself at Les Aiglons Refuge, Les Caves and the Le Vert Hotel as well as the newcomer in town, La Folie Douce.

Find out about the full artistic line-up which includes:  2manydjs, Adriatique, Anetha, Asa Moto, Dave Clark, Dixon, Greg Boust, Laurent Garnier, Mira, Purple Disco Machine, Roger Sanchez, The Shape Shifters and Vince.

Musilac Mont-Blanc

The end of April 2019 sees the return for its second year of Musilac Mont-Blanc. This festival may be rooted firmly to the bottom of the valley but boasts a knock-out backdrop featuring the Aiguille du Midi and Mont-Blanc!

Headlining in 2019 are The Editors, Two Door Cinema Club, The Kooks, The Blaze, Aya Nakamura, Eagle Eye Cherry, Eddy de Pretto, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Charlie Winston, HF Thiéfaine, Zazie, Roméo EElvisand Gaëtan Roussel.
