The Basics

23-24 February 2018
Inverness-shire, United Kingdom

Groove CairnGorm is the UK's first and only snowsports music festival, held up in the Scottish Highlands. Still only two years old, the festival has already become a beacon of the country's festival scene thanks to its originality and diverse lineups.

Pairing great slopes with après-ski sets and live performances – recent artists to have play include Basement Jaxx, Grandmaster Flash and Hot Chip – Groove CairnGorm brings together two of life's greatest pleasures in a thrilling weekend.

The Badaguish Outdoor Centre, where the festival takes place, is also the site for the Scottish Freestyle Championships, meaning it's not unusual to spot a few famous faces riding the slopes as part of their training, making it the ideal spot to catch a tip, or two.
