Horizon Festival takes place between the 8th and the 14th of March at the foot of the Pirin Mountains in the beautiful town of Bansko, Bulgaria. This sleepy, traditional Bulgarian town transforms overnight, becoming a hub for some of the world's best electronic music.
As if that wasn’t enough, Horizon gives you the opportunity to don some ski’s, or a snowboard; head to the top of the mountain and cruise back down. There’s over 75 kilometres of quality slopes, from a height of 2600m. Secondly, the mountain itself is the perfect snowy playground for all abilities, with something for everyone in the terrain department. Whether you want steeps or trees, groomed piste or off piste, easy runs, hard runs, rails or jumps, you will find it here. What’s more, there’s barely any lift queues, affordable hire prices for equipment & discounted lessons for those who need a little help.
The festival is spread over the entire town, with hotels and guest houses playing host to festival goers from around the world. The day’s are filled with skiing, mountain top stages, cold beers and great music; when the sun sets, bars and clubs open their doors and the tempo starts to rise, with the UK’s hottest club nights each bringing their own sound to the slopes of Bansko.
This years festival will see the likes of: Kerri Chandler, Bondax, Ame, Catz ‘N Dogz, Zed Bias and Bulgaria’s very own Kink across the mountains various clubs and stages, as well as a host of other fantastic artists, bringing a range of sounds from across the breadth of the electronic music spectrum.
