From 10 to 14 April 2023, the Electric Mountain Festival in Sölden will be presented as a multi-day music event for the very first time. Fans are thrilled by the mix of international top acts such as Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, or NERVO amidst the unique alpine scenery of the Ötztal mountains paired with culinary delights and fun on the slopes. In 2023, electronic beats in several locations are spread across the ski area. Admission to the trendy acts is free for holders of a valid ski pass.
The extended Electric Mountain Festival week starts on Monday, 10 April, at the FALCON Restaurant. From Monday to Wednesday, fans will swing straight from the slopes onto the dance floors in the ski area. Ski huts and mountain inns in the winter sports region – for example, Annemaries Hühnersteign, Rettenbach Market Restaurant, Panorama Alm, and Philipp as popular meeting places – are transformed into show stages for world-renowned DJs. Among them are two Kinx, Tujamo, You Not Us, and Julian Jordan. The unrivaled Electric Mountain Festival “Pistenbully” snow groomer serves as a coherent and eye-catching turntable setup. As usual, a large festival area will be created at Giggijoch on Thursday and Friday. On the turntables: Don Diablo, Oliver Heldens, NERVO as well as Meduza, and many other popular acts of the international DJ scene.
Electric Mountain Festival on tour in the ski area
The 2023 edition will delight music fans in Sölden with trendy beats by taking them to several locations within the ski area. During the warm-up on the first three days, both artists and winter sports enthusiasts celebrate in pleasant temperatures right next to the ski slopes on the mountain and close to the valley. Electrifying beats and casual hut flair promise great variety.

The performing stars of the electric music scene include Don Diablo, NERVO, and Oliver Heldens. Also the DJ duo You Not Us, Hugel, Meduza, Julian Jordan, Vini Vinci & others will show their skills on the turntables.
