Welcome to the Freeze Festival

Freeze Festival

What is Freeze Festival? Is it a music festival? Is it a sports competition? Is it all the winter goodness with a blast of fun? Let us explain.

Freeze is a snowsports and music festival in London, nestled in the shadow of Battersea Power Station. Every year since it began in 2008 Freeze has welcomed the world’s very best skiers and snowboarders to compete on the specially erected 32m high, 100m long real snow ramp. They throw themselves off the huge kicker performing their best tricks for the LG snowboard FIS World Cup ranking points, their share of the prize purse, and your viewing pleasure.

The event takes place over three days in late October and boasts a stellar music line up. The last two years have seen huge international acts like Cypress Hill, Orbital, Friendly Fires and Chase & Status cause havoc in the enormous festival marquee, and expect even more exciting acts this year. There is also a big retail village for you to explore, loads of specially decked out après ski bars with DJs of their own, a Relentless stage, food stalls, fairground rides and more. Freeze is a totally unique London Festival experience.

See the Freeze Festival website for more info and to book your tickets.
