Ski Music Festivals
If you like your spring ski trip to coincide with great music, then there’s no shortage of destinations to choose from for 2020. Conditions across the Alps are looking great with lots of recent snowfall and lots more on the forecast. Better yet, Mountain Drop-offs can take you there!
Plan your time well and you could ski and party from now until the end of the season…
Alpe d’Huez 14-21 March 2020
First of the spring line-up is Tomorrowland Festival in Alpe d’Huez. A firm favourite with dance fans it’s line-up this year includes Armin van Buuren, Martin Garrix, Afrojack and Dimitri Vegas.

Portes du Soleil 15-20 March 2020
Meanwhile, over in the Portes du Soleil there’s the week-long FREE open-air Rock the Pistes festival.
