Lineup

Snowboxx will take place next year from 23rd to 30th March 2014, and the buzz surrounding the event is palpable. It will host a mix of Balearic talent including some of Ibiza and Mallorca's finest talent, along with some familiar household names - all to be revealed over the coming months.

Vibe

During the day guests can enjoy the amazing pistes of the Pyrenees whilst chilling out to our DJs spinning the decks in the mountains but the party really comes alive at night. With attractions such as Surf, one of Andorra's most famous restaurants-turned-nightclub will be serving up steaks, before turning into a music hotspot when the sun goes down. What would you say to a full cow barbecue?

Grassroot UK and Balearic talent to host the different nights with a few headline DJs to make this a festival like no other.

Stages and other entertainment

Snowboxx has an array of venues across Arinsal, from a mountain top DJ spot to utilising all the clubs and bars that are in the resort.
