If all of this talk of relaxing has made you fall asleep, then don’t worry, this next section should wake you up. March is also a great month for partying in Morzine, and this year we have loads to look forward to. From free music festivals to weekly apres sessions, you’ll always find somewhere to take yourself if you fancy a bit of a party.
Don’t forget that the March 17th is Saint Patrick’s Day, so there will be plenty going on in and around Morzine with an Irish feel to it. If you’re looking for the ideal place to go for that perfect pint of Guinness then look no further than the Dixie Bar. This Irish bar shows sport and has live music most days of the week. It’s home to the Dixie Mix, an Irish band who are sure to be playing over the weekend. We’re also told on good authority that you can even order a green pint on the slopes on St Paddy’s Day.
The popular free music festival Rock the Pistes is back. This amazing event is taking place from March 17th to 23rd this year, and promises to be another huge success. Free gigs pop up all over the slopes during the festival, with artists such as Rag’n’Bone Man and Caravan Palace performing in the past. This year includes performances from Charlie Winston, Hyphen Hyphen and Gaetan Roussel.
Immediately after Rock the Pistes is the fantastic Snowboxx festival in Avoriaz. This is a ticketed event, but has an incredible lineup this year including Craig David, Rudimental, Jax Jones and Danny Howard.
If you love music but aren’t overly keen on big festival style gigs, then the Spring Lounge Festival in Les Gets might be the perfect thing for you. From March 22nd to 31st, you’ll find a series of concerts and gigs taking place in bars and on the streets of Les Gets. There will be something for everyone, so it’s well worth exploring if you want to experience a bit of live music whilst you’re here.
As well as these fantastic one off festivals and events, there are always amazing apres parties going on in and around the bars of Morzine. Watch for regular performances from bands such as Squid Lips, Remedy Sounds, DJ Lady Eliza and plenty of other favourites.
