Horizon festival: where electronic beat touches the slopes of the Pirin mountain

In march the beautiful town of Bansko hosts a brand new winter festival where electronic music and ski enthusiasts will enjoy the beat on the perfect snow-covered Pirin slopes.

What do you think a UNESCO World Heritage site has to do with electronic music? Well, a lot, at least from March 23rd to March 29th, 2013, when Horizon festival brings more than 40 artists from the world of Dubstep, 80s House, Techno, Hip Hop etc. to buzz the fresh mountain air in Bansko.

This electronic music festival is organized for the first time in Bulgaria, giving what all electronic music lovers probably have ever dreamt of: 24/7 electronic vibes combined with great skiing and snowboarding opportunities, plus, as the organizers put it, “beautiful beer prices”. Jack Robinson, one of the founders of the popular Outlook and Dimensions festivals, is the curator of Horizon Festival and Tom Pshedzhemirski, a.k.a Tommy Gun from True Badness, is the co-organizer of the event.

The idea of the Horizon festival is clear-cut and grabbing. It is to join together winter sports activities with the pleasure of excellent party experience.

Ski and Electronic music from dusk till dawn: Undoubtedly, everyone looking for more than just another electronic party night will be delighted to attend this new electronic music and snow experience. Within the 6 days and nights of the festival the schedule includes more than a dozen of parties and events comprising quality music with names in the line-up like Crazy P, Jackmaster, Ben Pearce, Maribou State, Dark Sky, Route 94, Hannah Holland, Ossie, Cheeba, Leon Vynehall, Dan Beaumont, Planas, Alex Arnout, and many others. Some of the best Bulgarian artists from recent years like KiNK (Strahil Velchev ) and 1000names are also joining the slope stages.

As for the cost of this all encompassing experience the package prices (accommodation, facilities access, parties passes etc.) vary from GBP 256 up to GBP 499. There are also festival tickets sold separately available, as well as tickets and ski passes only. The price details are available at Horizon Festival website.

    Just came back from Sevlievo in Bulgaria. Drove up to Hotel Impulse in Uzana where I hired skis, boots and poles for myself and two children for just 17 levs for adult and 10 levs each child and used the hotel ski slope 5 levs each. Perfect for the kids first time as parking right at entrance to hotel and slope is 20m walk! Food in restaurant tasty and cheap. Perfect for beginners!

    WOW, thats all i can say about the previous week of my life. The snow conditions were amazing and the people were so friendly. The night life was always active and the rila hotel was especially fantastic. I loved the accommodation at the rila and i loved the way it is right on the slope. I wouldn't have changed a thing about the holiday and i would recommend this resort to everyone including beginners and experts. Overall, i had an amazing time!!!

    We just had a wonderful trip to Pamporovo. We were a group of 10 adults, and 3 small children (1 to 3 years old), who stayed at the Castle complex, in 4 apartments, for a week (7 days stay, 6 days skiing) Everything at the Castle was great, and the staff was very forthcoming and helpful in every way. The apartments were very practical, and equipped with all necessities. Not luxurious, but really good and adequate in size and layout. You should note though, that towels are not changed every day. Towels are not needed to bring to the spa area and treatments. The food at the Excalibur restaurant was typical for the area, and well prepared. The staff at the restaurant is also great. The Castle complex is situated 2-3 km. from Ski center 2 (Malina). It is of course easiest if you are driving, but there are shuttles from the hotel to the ski center and lift. Ski in-/out is possible at the backside of the complex. We had booked ski- and snowboard packages, and that worked out perfectly as well. The snowboard instructor was a true professional. Patient and very focused on making sure that all of us learned the moves, at our own individual pace. Everyone had a great time, and learned a lot. The area was perfect for us, as we are all beginners on snowboards. Had we been on skies, I suspect the terrain would not be challenging enough for an entire week. We can definitely recommend Pamporovo, and the Castle complex, and will be back next year.
