RISE Festival is ready and waiting for 3000 snow loving party people to descend upon the beautiful resort of Les Deux Alpes on 12th December. The team have been working hard on securing the best line-up yet and that is just what they have done. Stages will be hosted by Hospitality, Eton Messy, Ibiza Rocks and Rinse FM with DJs like Skream, Jackmaster and High Contrast all playing. There is just time, however, to unleash another mini avalanche of headliners before this wintery wonderland gets fully under way…
The first of these is the one and only Ms. Dynamite, the MOBO and Mercury Prize winning singer and rapper who spearheaded the early noughts garage movement. As well as having performed headline slots on the global festival stage including Glastonbury and Bestival, Ms. Dynamite has recently collaborated with the likes of Katy B, Shy FX, Major Lazer, Magnetic Man, DJ Fresh and Redlight so is a real contemporary club force once more.
Sigma are also joining the party with a live show on the Ibiza Rocks main stager. Say the pair: "Ibiza Rocks was one of the highlights of an amazing summer, and we can't wait to bring that vibe to our LIVE performance at Rise Festival.” This super hyped drum & bass duo made up of Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie really know how to put on a show, and you can be sure to hear plenty of their chart topping hits in the hills this winter.
Taking place in the truly picturesque resort of Les Deux Alpes - one of the most famous ski resorts in Europe, with blissful views, 225 kilometres of perfect ski runs and a quaint town centre with oodles of winter charm, restaurants, bars, pools and cinemas - the festival runs from the 12th to the 19th of December.
