Nominated for the Yourope Best European Festival Award at the UK Festival Awards 2007, and billed as the ‘cool little boutique festival’ by the Sunday Times Style Magazine, TignesFest is a dynamic alpine music event held in one of the top rated (and highest!) ski resorts in the world – Tignes. Running from 15 -19th April, TignesFest features everything from live bands to DJs and exclusive acoustic sets. It’s also a long weekend of skiing, snowboarding, socialising and sounds for the discerning and curious who like to experience something outside of the norm. Best and most important of all, the event is FREE!
TignesFest also creates an environment for upcoming artists to hang out, have fun and forge friendships with other artists and media. Since last years event Primary 1 and the Shoes have collaborated on tracks and James Yuill and A Human have worked together proving that TignesFest really is a melting pot for the artists of the future.
Curating the show once again are radio broadcasters from the UK’s 3 top radio stations; Eddy Temple Morris (XFM), Kissy Sell Out (R1) and The Loose Cannons (Kiss FM) respectively, who have pulled in some artists/acts that are sure to excite and intrigue.
So far, the first acts to be announced are… Black Peter Group (US/UK), Danimal Kingdom (UK), Gravity Co (BG), Kym Brown (UK), MidimidiMidi (FR/UK), Theoretical Girl (UK), The Last Republic (Wales), Underground Railroad (FR).
If that wasn’t enough, Base Camp, the Official Travel Partner for the TIgnesFest plans to create a Ski & Snowboard Test for small independent manufacturers and a series of snowsport competitions for seasonaires from resorts within the Savoie, France during the festival.
