There’s nothing like enjoying a day of the best mountain skiing followed by a night of food, parties and fun, soundtracked by an array of world-beating DJ talent.

Chase & Status have had an incredible year, winning a BRIT Award for Producer of the Year, enjoyed two massive hits with ‘Disconnect’ and ‘Baddadan’, and reinvented themselves yet again with new album/mixtape ‘2 Ruff, Vol 1’. There is no better choice to lead the 10th-anniversary charge and get the Rise crowds jumping.
