We British are used to the cold so nothing would come more natural to us than make good use of what we have available to us, especially with the winter season approaching thus, this multicultural melting pot of fun will be celebrating the Relentless Freeze Festival taking place between the 29 and 31st of October, an alternative event whereby festival-goers will once again see the Battersea Power Station in London transformed to become an international standard snowboarding and freestyle ski venue. Happy days and frozen festivals!
The Relentless Freeze Festival, an event where London, snow sports, and music collide comprises a ski venue featuring a 32 snow jump, and where every year the world’s best snowboarders and skiers descend on Battersea Power Station to compete on a real snow ramp before some amazing music acts hit three stages for a banging party! Thus, accompanying the World Cup snowboard and ski competitions at this iconic south London venue will be fairground rides, a popular addition in 2009, a retail village and après-ski style bars with live DJs, plus music from live bands. In addition, new in this year are after-work tickets for the Friday night so you can arrive at 6.30 pm to catch the end of the competition before enjoying the bands performing in this event. For the entertainment of those attending après-ski style bars will comprise the Desperado Dome where you can purchase a tequila-flavoured beer whilst jamming with the DJs, a jägermeister three tier ice truck, the upfest live art stage where artists will be battling it out live over the weekend (also worth coming early and checking out the live art walls between the main stage and big air jump), and the official after night party which will be taking place at a venue nearby for all you party animals that just can’t get enough!
Furthermore, the fantastic retail village at Relentless Freeze 2010, comprising one of the main features of the event will be host to some of the biggest and latest brands, retailers, snow and ski resorts, and tour operators who will be showcasing their latest lines and hot deals on the snow to Freeze customers only. Thus, Freeze fest-goers can enjoy special prices from the entire industry who will be freezing prices and giving away offers so be prepared for some amazing bargains! Finally, there are 200 early bird tickets going £5 a shot for the party events along with your festival ticket, whilst tickets at the door range from £8 to £15 . We also recommend that you wrap up warm because as you can imagine it does get a bit chilly. A list of participating athletes, musicians, DJs, companies, and everyone else can be found on their website, as well as full details with regards to prices etc.
So, if you’re in London this October and snow sports is your thing, or you would simply like to take part in the post ski venue celebrations, then head to the Relentless Freeze Festival. Because who knew that freezing could be fun? The Brits certainly did!
