The definitive winter festival that is RISE is all set to break records and make more magical musical memories in 2015. Taking place between the 11th and 19th of December, the boutique festival wholly transforms the majestical resort of Les Deux Alpes, France, into an adult playground where music and fun, games and japes, relaxation and raving all come together in carefully curated harmony.
It all goes down on the largest skiable glacier with over 220kms of skiable routes (no matter the weather) and with a jam packed programme of ground-breaking acts from the worlds of house, techno, indie dance and plenty in between: RISE Festival, then, is the first and last stop for all serious snow sport and music lovers.
Last year’s event set a proud benchmark with great snow coupled with 3,000 friendly party people and standout musical moments, live shows and club takeovers in both large, but also more intimate, settings. Highlights included EZ taking it to a new level on the open-air terrace at Le Pano Bar, 2000 metres up with panoramic views of the mountains. Clean Bandit also gave us a very special show on the town stage with the sun setting and there was a carnival atmosphere throughout the whole week with the village jumping to the sounds of Doorly, Artwork, Hannah Wants, B. Traits, Toyboy & Robin and many more.
Situated over 3000 meters above sea level, Les Deux Alpes boasts glistening white snow, crisp and clean alpine air and blue skies that will take your breath away, as well south facing views, 50 hotels and hostels, bars, restaurants, swimming pools and cinemas. During festival week the atmospheres in town are sure to be fantastic, and then there’s the Snow Globe Arena and the Ice Cube Stage, brought to you by Rise and making for a week to remember, plus Love Lifts that mean you can speed date between ski runs, a campfire around which you can toast marshmallows, a hot tub, a Yeti’s Cabin to enjoy some mulled wine or hot chocolate, woodlands in which to wander, a winter beach party in the mountains, an ice disco, a huge cinema screen, a Snowmageddon arena for full on snow-based warfare, a memory pod for photo ops, club nights in the mountains and even snow sculpture competitions and ski, snowboard and skidoo tournaments… basically the fun and adventure never stops.
The 2015 line-up will be announced in the coming weeks but you can already get excited because two mammoth club brands are in charge meaning d&b, house and bass music is firmly covered. In 2015 there will also be more arenas, more acts, extended hours, more partying and more aprés ski. As the festival falls the week before Christmas, this year RISE are adding to this vibe with a German Christmas Market and they’ll be turning on the christmas lights same as last year around the Risemas tree.
As such RISE 2015 already promises to be the best alpine festival yet, and with much more to be announced in the coming weeks and months, you’d be mad not to jump on tickets right away.
Excitement continues to build for RISE Festival, which now announces its brilliant first brand partnerships for 2015. Taking place between the 12th and 19th of December in the breathtaking resort of Les Deux Alpes, France, RISE Festival offers the perfect coming together of music, alpine sports and mountain fun.
First up to join you in a winter wonderland come December are world famous live music champions Ibiza Rocks who’ll host the outdoor main stage. After delivering one of the stand out moments of Rise 2015 with Clean Bandit, Rocks are ready for another explosive set of main stage piste programming and are excited to be bringing their electronic music brands W.A.R! and Shelter in on the action.
As well as that, cult underground radio station RinseFM offer a main arena bouncing with the hottest grime, bass, funky and house artists as well as a sure to be sell out Rinse Apres Ski event at 3000m up in the clear blue skies of the local snow covered mountains.
As well as this, long time drum & bass scene leaders Hospitality will host a main area, and their show will showcase all manner of DJ talents old and new. Finally, Eton Messy are hosting a main arena show that will be another hotly anticipated event given their past form and real party know how.
Les Deux Alpes boasts 220kms of glistening white pistes, crisp and clean alpine air and blue skies that will take your breath away, as well a sun baked village with 50 hotels and hostels, bars, restaurants, swimming pools and cinemas.

“THE BANGKOK TAKEOVER”
“Gravity Thailand is a unique music event like no other ever seen before in Asia”
After the huge success of ‘The Bangkok Landing’ in November 2014, Arcadia returns to Thailand on the 23rd January 2016, taking over the heart of the city with an even more spectacular and exciting event. If you thought Gravity Thailand 2014 was extreme, prepare for your minds to be blown with a bigger DJ line up and a new central location making this an international, world class event not to be missed.
About Arcadia: Based in Bristol UK, Arcadia are a dedicated team of engineers, designers, performers and party starters with exceptional vision across the creative spectrum. They design and construct weird and wonderful machines and installations from recycled materials, transforming lifeless pieces of scrap metal into living mechanical sculptures and music stages. These extraordinary structures have taken centre stage at places such as the Glastonbury Festival (performing to 75,000 people in 2014), Boomtown Festival, and they were also called upon to display some of their vehicles at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics. In 2013, Arcadia won ‘Best Live Production’ at the prestigious TPI annual awards ceremony. Since their first international show with Gravity Thailand, Arcadia are now in high demand across the globe and have featured as far afield as the Ultra Music Festival in Miami and the Rhythm and Vines festival in New Zealand with their Afterburner stage production. Their most recent event saw 24,000 people gathered around the Spider in the historic centre of Bristol.
The Spider Stage: At the heart of the Arcadia Arena is the Spider stage, Arcadia’s largest and most radical structure. Straight out of the realms of science fiction, this colossal alien creature is the lynchpin of the Arcadia’s ecosystem and will be the main stage at the Gravity Thailand music event. The Spider is a 360 degree, spellbindingly interactive environment with a fully programmable DJ booth suspended above the sweet spot of the dance floor. This unique stage is also armed with LED screens, lasers, giant jets of CO2 and fire cannons that shoot flames 50ft high into the air sending shock waves through the crowd. Surrounding this awesome stage production will be a one of the best sound systems in the whole of SE Asia, especially designed and configured to create a 100m sound field with breathtaking results. Never attempted anywhere else in Asia this bespoke sound design submerges you in the music, elevating crowds to new heights of feeling and emotion.
DJ Talent: One of the successes of ‘The Bangkok Landing’ in 2014 was the DJ’s giving the audience an all round dynamic, euphoric and fun music experience. The next event will feature even an even bigger DJ line up, with some of the worlds most popular and exciting cutting edge performers. Sonically the DJ’s will take you on another journey through different styles of music, building the night with high impact sounds and creating an extreme party atmosphere like no other dance music event in Thailand.
