We British love our music festivals. Let’s face it, we all count down the days until summertime where we can enjoy a few days away with our friends, enjoying a few drinks and dancing the days away to our favourite musicians in our favourite welly boots. If you like me love a good festival but fancy changing it up this year and would rather grab your ski boots instead of your wellies then head on over to the fabulous Swiss luxury ski resort of Zermatt, for the yearly festival that is Zermatt Unplugged.
This year Zermatt Unplugged runs from the 4th-8th April so you have 4 days to enjoy some of the top artists, such as Jess Glynne, Nelly Furtado, Michael Bolton, KT Tunstall and Paolo Nutini to name but a few.
This is a legendary and unique music festival which has been running for 10 years. You can check out your favourite artists up close and personal in Zermatt village where there will be 13 festival stages, as well as up the mountain at the Sunnegga. The atmosphere is like no other where you can enjoy fabulous spring skiing conditions and some beautiful blue skies and sunshine.
Unlike the English festivals where camping is the name of the game, here in Zermatt when you finally want to head home why not treat yourself to some luxury and head back to one of our beautiful catered chalets to enjoy some opulence, high end service and gourmet cuisine. Or if you would rather eat out in the many fabulous restaurants which Zermatt has to offer then how about one of our luxury self catered chalets.
If you’ve already booked tickets to see your much loved artist then I best let you know which of these stunning luxury ski chalets are still available for the week of Zermatt Unplugged, before they get booked up.
