Tomorrowland Winter

Tomorrowland Winter is the newest member of the Tomorrowland family, returning for a second edition after its dazzling debut in 2019. Bringing the world's most famous dance music festival to the Alps and taking over the picturesque town of Alpe d'Huez for a whole week, the festival is already one of the most popular of its kind.  

It wouldn't be Tomorrowland without a star-studded list of DJs from the world of EDM, techno and house, so expect the biggest names to grace the slopes and après-ski parties – last year's edition included the likes of Afrojack, Charlotte de Witte, Kungs, Martin Garrix, and Tomorrowland favourite Armin Van Buuren to name a few. 

The resort lies in a sunny plateau, giving a breathtaking sparkle to its variety of slopes that cater to beginners and experts and everyone in between. For the adventurous, Alpe d'Huez is also home to Pic Blanc, the entry point to the 16km Sarenne run, the longest black run on the alps. Don't veer too far though, or you may miss the best party of your life...
