New Zealand’s newest festival destination, Snowboxx, is launching this September with a 100 per cent Aotearoa lineup.
The event is a collaboration between Europe’s leading winter music festival, Snowboxx (held annually in Avoriaz, in the heart of the French Alps) and New Zealand’s festival Rhythm & Alps.
Snowboxx NZ promises to combine the best elements of a ski trip and a music festival into one package.
The new wave of Snowboxx artists features Aotearoa talent spanning drum & bass, hip-hop, disco, house, reggae and more.
Topping the bill is Kora and New Zealand-raised production wizard Opiuo who are set to dominate the slopes.
Backed by a world-class production, the latest round of acts completes a powerhouse line-up that includes Shapeshifter and bass duo Lee Mvtthews, Montell2099 and rapper Melodownz.
Rounding off the line-up are electronic duo Arma Del Amor, George FM personality Brook Gibson and bass bigwigs Eastern Bloc, plus Hot & Dangerous, Noncharlet, Scotty Mayes and Thanks.
Snowboxx NZ is crammed with a whole lot more around-the-clock entertainment including sledge races and ‘skim pool.”
Alex Turnbull of Rhythm & Alps comments: “Europe’s biggest winter festival is coming to New Zealand and has been programmed with a line-up of the best talent New Zealand has to offer. We’re hyped to stage a safe, affordable and unforgettable event in one of the world’s most spectacular locations.”
