We took everything we have grown to associate with a classic ’Festival’ experience and replaced it with a pair of skis, gloves, goggles and MULTIPLE LAYERS last week. The sun, the tents, the overpriced lager, they were nowhere to be seen, instead we had snow, slopes, exceptional (and super reasonably priced) beer, but most significantly, great vibes all wrapped up on the ski resort in Bansko, Bulgaria’s most infamous party town and ski resort.
 
Festival Review - Horizons Festival
The premise is simple; folk from all over (but mostly the UK) descend upon Bansko for a weeks worth of unlimited ski / snowboard with a hearty roster of live musical happenings all over town. Not just in the clubs, the festival mixes classic club nights of an evening, with a handful of outdoor venues literally in-and-amongst the action on the main snowcapped mountain. As a result, the most organised amongst us would mark out where they wanted to be and when and simply ski or board down the mountain ticking off the artists they wished to see along the way. Genius? Definitely genius…
 
As always, a successful skiing experience is heavily reliant on decent snow and it just so happened that last week broke snowfall records in Bulgaria. We are talking the most snowfall in Bansko in over a decade! It was literally a madness and only added to the overall spirit across the town, trust us the spirit was ever so strong and that is all you can really hope for rom a festival experience in our books.
 
Aside from the slopes, musical highlights included…
 
DJ EZ tearing up central Bansko in customary fashion, High Focus Records and Fatima (accompanied by her Eglo band) smashing up the Mountain Creek Stage mid-way up the mountain and Heatwave who we saw  impress from start-to-finish twice over the week, however, we must say, each and every minute of the party was exceptionally well put together.
 
We shall be seeing the folks over at Horizons Festival next year no question.
