Don’t miss out on Gilles Peterson’s winter edition of Worldwide Festival 2017 in Leysin, Switzerland this March 2017.
Celebrating their fifth year of stunning vistas, skiing, alpine air and tremendous live music – Worldwide Festival returns in 2017 with a mouth-watering line up.
The festival takes place on the ski resort of Leysin in the Swiss Alps from 23rd to the 26th March 2017. This resort already has a rich musical history having welcomed Abba and the Jackson 5 back in 1979, as well as hosting the legendary ‘Leyslin Rock Festival’ where the likes of James Brown, Lou Reed, George Michael and Bob Dylan have all preformed memorable live performances in the past.
Leysin is famous for having the purest air in Europe – this combined with the stunning views and extreme slopes was enough to convince Gilles Peterson to set up his own festival there. Peterson actually used to go skiing in Leysin as a youngster and has been in love with the resort ever since. This year’s line-up is sure to bring a one of a kind universal experience, showcasing the latest music trends and also throwing many new exciting artists into the frame! The line-up this year includes Gilles Peterson himself, as well as; Mark de Clive-Lowe, Red Greg, Nia Andrew, Henry Wu and Tomamaso Cappelato – to name just a few!
Peterson’s golden rule is that he is “always searching for the perfect beat” and if this line up is anything to go by he may well be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the perfect beat at this year’s Worldwide Festival. There will be music in the day on the slopes, followed by an after-ski party at the bottom with DJ sets and live music in various venues around Leysin. This festival has so much to offer with or without the skis that it really should be at top of all winter festival revellers list of stops this season!
