Rock The Pistes

Rock Les Pistes MorzineMarch 26th -30th sees Rock The Pistes return for another year.

The Portes du Soleil runs many special events throughout the year, including a variety of sporting events and concerts. However, the Rock the Pistes festival, taking place each March, is one stand-out event on the annual calendar. The week-long music festival offers visitors the opportunity to ski or snowboard to different areas to watch a series of performances by artists and bands on stages all over the mountain. And the best part of all? The festival is completely free, you just need to have a lift-pass in order to get around!

A superb line-up

In previous years, Rock the Pistes has featured a variety of French and other European artists, however this year the organisers have stepped up the International offering, producing an enviable festival line-up at a time of year when there is traditionally great weather and conditions in the Portes du Soleil.
