The Festival

On the slopes

A unique event in Europe, this unusual musical rendezvous is open to ski pass holders. Every day for the duration of the festival, skiers are notified of the location of the stage and invited to join in the concerts free of charge. For almost a week between the end of March and the beginning of April, the 12 resorts of the Portes du Soleil will live to the rhythm of the Rock the pistes festival, offering skiers pure sensations of skiing and sound.

The only Festival on the slopes!

Rock the Pistes is the pioneer of high-altitude festivals, and the only one truly
on the slopes!
Every winter for almost a decade, the Rock the Pistes festival has delighted music and ski fans. As the first spring festival, it takes place during the third week of March, offering a unique experience in the heart of the high-altitude ski slopes. Fans can hit the slopes in the morning and enjoy open-air concerts in the afternoon, featuring French and international rock artists such as Chinese Man, Kesiah Jones, Babyschambles, Shaka Ponk, Selah Sue, Caravan Palace, Skip the Use, Ben l’Oncle Soul, Cali, and many more. This combination promises a perfect mix of skiing, sun and sound all winter long!

Next festival: March 17 to 23, 2024!
