It looks set to be a week of hard shredding and even harder partying with daily mountain-top raves, forest-lit outdoor stages, intimate gigs, igloo sound clashes, unique pop-up parties, and more.

Add to this headline acts including some of the heaviest hitters in the world of music, including Dizzee Rascal, B-Traits, Krafty Kuts, and Wilkinson, the the week promises to be one long party that will e hard to forget.
