Wednesday, 24 March 2021 - After a magical first edition in 2019, Tomorrowland will return to the breathtaking French ski resort of Alpe d’Huez for the second edition of Tomorrowland Winter in 2022. The story of Tomorrowland Winter continues from March 19-26, 2022 and the People of Tomorrow will unite again for an adventure of a lifetime filled with snow, music and undiscovered secrets – high up in the beautiful surroundings of the French mountains. Pre-registrations are now open on tomorrowland.com.
The second edition of Tomorrowland Winter was canceled just before the start in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to organize a festival in Alpe d’Huez in 2021 either, but Tomorrowland is convinced that this will be possible again next winter. After a two-year break, the festival will return to Alpe d’Huez from March 19-26, 2022 to organize the ultimate musical winter sports holiday – gathering the world’s best DJs in the village and on the mountains at its dazzling stages, which Tomorrowland is renowned for all around the world.
As a tribute to this year’s Tomorrowland Winter, which cannot take place due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Tomorrowland will air a 2,5-hour long show with spectacular views of Alpe d’Huez and the surrounding mountains on Thursday March 25 at 16:00 CET. Martin Solveig x Kungs, Klingande and Ofenbach will each deliver an exclusive performance at a stunning altitude of more than 2,100 meters.
Dazzling stages built high up in the mountains
In 2019, Tomorrowland organized a very successful first ever edition of Tomorrowland Winter, bringing the entire world to Alpe d’Huez with festivalgoers from more than 90 different countries. The festival’s inaugural outing in France debuted with an impressive stage production set up in the heart of the village and throughout the entire ski area, featuring more than 100 performances from the likes of Armin van Buuren, Charlotte de Witte, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix and Paul Kalkbrenner. Each one of the stages was custom designed with a scale and style to blow visitors away, setting a record with the most magnificent stages of their kind ever built and constructed at such elevations in the mountains. The highest stage was located on Le Pic Blanc, the highest point of the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine Ski at a breathtaking 3,300 meters above sea level, overlooking the entire resort.
Winter wonderland nestled in the French Alps
From the slopes to the stages – the result was a fabulous winter wonderland nestled in the French Alps, reaching a new and highly international audience for their first visit to Alpe d’Huez. Located in the heart of the French Alps, the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine Ski is the gateway to an outstanding skiing area, boasting 250 kilometers of slopes and 300 days of sunshine a year – ranked among the top-rated ski resorts in the world. At Tomorrowland Winter 2022, there will also be plenty to do for non-skiers, offering visitors all kinds of winter snow activities that don’t involve skiing or snowboarding.
Tribute to Tomorrowland Winter
In honor of this year’s Tomorrowland Winter which cannot take place due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the world-renowned festival is turning the ski resort of Alpe d’Huez into a stunning concert venue for a magical winter wonderland show on top of the Alps. Featuring an all-French line-up, Martin Solveig and Kungs will be playing a unique b2b set for the first time ever, while Klingande and Ofenbach will also deliver an exclusive performance – at a dazzling altitude of more than 2,100 meters – with spectacular views of Alpe d’Huez and the surrounding mountains. The 2,5 hour-long show will air on Thursday March 25 at 16:00 CET, exclusively on tomorrowland.com.
French dance legend Martin Solveig: “The COVID-19 pandemic made us realize how precious small things are. We’re on top of the world here at Alpe d’Huez and feel very lucky to be part of this. It’s our first time playing a b2b set together, really exciting!”
French young prodigy Kungs: “I’m working on a lot of new music at the moment. The vibe of the album I’m working on is really happy and positive. I think I’ll release a couple of tracks before summer and then an album afterwards. I’m going to play one track during our set, it’s called ‘Regarde moi’. I hope the people will like it!”
French tropical house producer Klingande: “I’m blessed with the perfect set time – sunset. This goes perfect with my music. I didn’t get to travel since a year now and I haven’t played in so long, so I’m very excited. It’s great to create, but it’s definitely great to perform as well.”
