Festival Season: Dancing in Wellies or Ski Boots?

Can you believe it? The longest day of the year has come and gone. Usually this milestone marks the ‘start’ of the British summer and the Festival season. Those plans may be on hold for another Summer, but never fear, the Winter is coming and that means a festival season on snow.

Summer festivals are not so different to the Après Ski scene in most of Europe’s best ski resorts or festival season at the end of the ski season; like Snowbombing, Top of the Mountain, Ibiza Rocks, The Brits or Rock the Pistes:

  • Inappropriate footwear for dancing.
  • Great music.
  • Sleep deprivation.
  • Fabulous friends.
  • Too much beer (or jager-bombs or whatever!).
  • You are happy to engage random strangers in lengthy conversation.
  • You wonder whether you are getting too old.

To be honest, I don’t need to wonder; I know I now prefer a bottle of wine and fine food to jagerbombs and kebabs, a bed to a gutter, a great day on the mountains to a headache and an early finish.
