New festival POLARIS launches in Verbier, Switzerland

Located 2200 metres up a mountain with panoramic views of the Swiss Alps, Polaris launches its first year in the Swiss ski resort, Verbier, in Switzerland.

Over two days, a quality selection of the world’s best DJs will play on top of a mountain for 1,000 happy party people. Dancing under a crystal dome, partygoers will get to enjoy vistas of the Swiss Alps whilst dancing to music inspired by the unique landscape. The ethos of the festival is to bring something authentic and to bring good vibes and good friends together on the mountain.

There will also be activities organised by the festival, including a sledge race between the artists playing, with the winning DJ invited back to play the next year.

Line up: Luciano, Seth Troxler, Carl Craig feat. Mad Mike Banks, DJ Koze, Mirko Loko, Andrea Olivia, Mountain People, Cesar Merville + more TBA.
