The UKs hottest acts will be heading to Europes coolest slopes for the first ever Horizon Festival; a hedonistic week of underground Electronic music, set against the breathtaking, snow- ?covered Pirin mountains of south western Bulgaria. 

This unique music experience will transform Bulgarias premier winter sports resort, Bankso, a hotbed of nightlife in itself, into a festival lovers dream, from 23rd – ? 29th March 2013. Horizon Festival offers 6 nights of parties featuring cutting edge producers and DJs from across the UK playing music across the electronic spectrum from Dubstep to 80s House, Techno to Garage & Dance to Hip Hop. If the music isnt enough, Horizon also offers the tantalising prospect of over 70 kilometres of quality ski slopes to explore, with enough drop and run to satisfy the most dedicated powder enthusiasts. 

Every day from noon to dusk an exciting mix of underground DJs will host mountain raves in bars across the slopes – ? descend from party to party, catching the stimulating sounds of Future Garage from Dark Sky or dance floor friendly Disco from Casino Times, strains of heady, ethereal bass music from Maribou State or Phaelehs inimitable style of cinematic electronic music. Discover favourite acts and secret shindigs along the way and party into the early hours each night with the best value Aprs ski that any slopes have to offer; with such low prices throughout Banksos countless nightclubs and bars (beers cost 2), theres no reason to go to bed! 

Horizon is the only entirely DJ- ?led snow festival of its kind and partygoers can expect to hear plenty of forward- ?thinking electronic music throughout the week.
