Don’t think for a second that because summer is over the festivals have completely dried up. Just take a look at Rise Festival, a British-curated event taking place at Les Deux Alpes ski resort in France the week before Christmas. The six day festival features stages from the likes of Ibiza Rocks, Eton Messy, Hospital Records and, most notably for us, the dons at Rinse FM. Performing acts include Novelist, Faze Miyake, Ms Dynamite (not to be confused with Dynamite MC, who is also on the lineup) and So Solid Crew (well, just Romeo & Lisa Maffia). The likes of Skream, Sigma and Artwork should also warm the crowd up. The ski pass is £169, with accomodation starting at £99, so if you have some cash spare from all the presents you’ll be buying in December, why not give this a go?
