With its 20th Birthday coming up next year, Europe’s longest-running winter festival will be celebrating in style. The Brits is back in the freestyle resort of Laax, Switzerland from the 28th March – 4th April 2009, with plans to hit, jib and tweak its twenties. As quoted by BBC Ski Sunday presenter, Ed Leigh: “The Brits is Glastonbury meets the FA Cup final on snow, and that’s one hell of a recipe for entertainment.”
Over the past two decades, thousands of like-minded folk have descended upon The Brits to join in the worship of all things snow and music. Born back in 1989 at Sheffield Ski Village, The Brits has since dropped in on 14 alpine resorts, played host to internationally acclaimed DJ’s and artists, crowned over 130 British Champions and delivered more than its fair share of sun-burn along the way. 2008 witnessed the biggest and best Brits to date and they’re raising the bar even higher for next year’s double decade celebrations.
Stretched across Laax’s mountains, pristine snowparks, new hotels, bars and nightclubs, The Brits 2009 will see more great live bands, acoustic sets, unforgettable parties, Home Run style antics and inspirational world-class riding. Offering riders prestigious 3-Star TTR World ranking points, The Brits unites kids, rookies, pros and Olympians to compete in the SNO!zone Halfpipe, Quiksilver Big Air, Animal Slopestyle and Trespass Snowboardcross / Skiercross disciplines.
Come join in the fun and festivities with unbeatable packages now available from £239, including 7 nights’ accommodation, 6-day lift pass and, most importantly, your Brits event pack and wristband: your very own Willy Wonka golden ticket to a world of melodic revelry and resort privileges.
