Fed up with the sticky summer heat? Well, we’ve got an epic announcement that will be music to your ears—literally!

Europe's largest winter festival, Snowboxx, is hitting Cardrona this September bringing an avalanche of the world’s hottest electronic music acts slope-side. In collaboration with Rhythm and Alps, the week-long extravaganza promises an action-packed program of snowsports and apres-ski parties, recreating the legendary European festival held in Avoriaz, France each year.

With 900 hectares of pistes, Cardrona will become the ultimate mountain playground by day converted into a party scene at night. The festival is famous for its alpine antics with the likes of Fatboy Slim, Rudimental and Stormzy and we’re listening out for the NZ line-up with eager ears.

Beyond the mountains and music, expect a smorgasbord of fun-fuelled activities including a snowball arena, inflatable races and bottomless brunches—revellers prepare, it’s going to be wild.
