Post Winter Music Conference, Boy 8-Bit (pictured above), The Bloody Beetroots, and a handful of other artists will trade sunshine for snow as they head to the Alps for TignesFest.

The event, to be held at the Tignes ski resort in France, is a brand new festival curated by three of the U.K.’s top radio broadcasters, namely Eddy Temple Morris of XFM, Kissy Sell out of Radio 1, and Kiss FM’s The Loose Cannons, and is free to the public (although the cost of getting to the French Alps sort of depreciates that fact if you don’t live in Europe).

From a recent press release:

“With TignesFest, we aim to help find and support new talent, provide a platform for promotion, and encourage a new generation to think about the detrimental effect music piracy has on the industry and musicians, whilst also giving the consumer free opportunities to discover new talent and thus gain their support of musicians.”

For those who wish to weigh the consequences of downloading illegal music while skiing and listening to electronic music, book a ticket and head for the slopes April 17 – 20.
