The fashionable French ski resort of Chamonix is famous for its top-quality ski runs and climbing trails.
And when live music is concerned, Chamonix performs no differently...
Boasting three annual music festivals to enjoy, the year-round ski resort is a must for music lovers!
Chamonix Unlimited Music Festival: 2-7 April 2019
With its unique music venue locations and vibrant mix of artists, the 5-day 'Chamonix Unlimited Music Festival' is a firm hit.
Topped off by awe-inspiring ‘summit party’ locations including Aiguille du Midi (3,842m) and enticing open air concerts on the day stage and sunset performances at Plan Praz (2,000m), this annual festival is not to be missed!
Party-goers will be mesmerised by the 3,500m 'Skyway to Heaven' performance on top of Skyway Monte Bianco, at Punta Helbronner in Courmayeur (aptly nicknamed the 8th Wonder of the World). The 5-day festival also invites music fans to taste a wilder flavour at the Refuge de Lognan, whilst up at Montenvers (nicknamed the ‘love boat’) intoxicating tunes can be relished at 1,900m.
With an equally hot line-up to tempt you, it is time to party on the peaks!
Musilac Music Festival: 26-28 April 2019
It is only the 2nd year for this ambitious festival, and already there is something to satisfy all - thanks to its diverse, multi-genre programme. Music fans can expect everything from live Folk, Hip Hop and Indie, to Punk, Electronica, Pop and Rock.
With such headliners this year as 'The Editors' and 'Two Door Cinema Club', the 2-day 'Musilac Music Festival' promises an electric atmosphere for the crowds!
CosmoJazz Music Festival: 20-28 July 2019
For many there’s nothing quite like the sound of live Jazz.
With its thrilling offering of open-air venues, from the summit of Aiguille du Midi and Les Grands Montets to beautiful Lac Blanc, this free annual festival promises an atmospheric ambience for all.
The streets of Chamonix come alive with intoxicating Jazz melodies, thanks to its live brass bands which play at ‘Apérojazz’ time and the late-night 'Cham Jam' sessions in full swing.
Whichever melodies and venue locations strike the right note for you, the magical scenery of Chamonix will certainly strike the right chord!
