Rock The Pistes Festival 2020- A Great Reason To Book Your Morzine Accommodation For March
If your thinking about a ski holiday in March then the week of the Rock the Pistes Festival 2020 is a great time to book your Morzine accommodation. The high altitude festival incorporates great music, sensational venues and of course world class skiing.
Rock The Pistes festival 2020 is the tenth edition of the event and takes place from Sunday 15th March until Saturday 21st March. As well as the big headline acts playing across the whole Portes du Soleil ski area throughout the week, there are also countless smaller gigs at popular piste side venues and pop up stages in the bars and squares of the main villages. All of the venues are accessible on skis and what day on the slopes would not be complemented by some world class live music?!
The festival, which has seen previous headliners such as Babyshambles, The Klaxons and Rag n’ Bone Man will see classic British rock group The Stranglers top the bill for 2020. The Stranglers will close the festival with their headline show which will take place in Morgins. The venue has a breathtaking backdrop with the jagged rock formations and glacial drifts of the Dents du Midi forming the surrounding view
The full line up for the festival is yet to be released but the main acts have been announced. Skip The Use, a French electro funk band kick the festival off with their show in the Champery/ Les Crosets ski area. Other acts include Deluxe, the French band that headlined the first Rock The Pistes festival ten years ago will play in Chatel on the Monday at 13:30. Other big hitters include old school French hip hop group I AM who play Avoriaz on the Friday at 13:30.

Most of the main acts play slope-side during the early afternoon, making it easy to get to and from the gigs on skis. However, Morzine being the central village of the Portes du Soliel, makes a special effort for Rock The Pistes. The village hosts a large range of acts across the bars and stages at apres time throughout the week so the party continues long after the lifts shut.
