Snow Machine — Japan's newest destination/music festival
Set in the picturesque slopes of Hakuba, Japan, the brand new Snow Machine festival will bring with it four unforgettable days of music, culture and festivities.
A MOUNTAINEOUS LINEUP
From the 1st — 4th of March 2020, Hakuba will host world-class talent, including the beloved Peking Duk and What So Not, indie-pop quarter The Jungle Giants, acclaimed producer duo Hermitude, chart-topper Illy, dance music aficionados Confidence Man and Hot Dub Time Machine, alongside Crooked Colours, Art vs Science, Bag Raiders (DJ Set), Godlands, Owl Eyes and Running Touch.
It will also feature legendary Japanese artists Kenji Takimi, DJ Kentaro, Shinichi Osawa and more to be announced, who are all looking forward to the music and experience-based festival.
Does the name seem familiar? Don’t worry, you’re not tripping. Snow Machine is the sister festival of Wine Machine, which has been known to combine two things we all love: wine and extraordinary music. So although this will be the debut of Snow Machine — we can rest assured that we will be in good hands!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Hakuba, a town 3.5 hours from Tokyo, is famous for hosting the 1998 Winter Olympics. Next winter, it will host an impressive lineup, who will play amongst beautifully curated backgrounds. Expect indoor/outdoor onsens, sweeping mountain-top views, outdoor village stages, as well as mulled wine après soirees.
It is also well-known for its many trails and hot springs — so when you’re not attending the festival, you’ll have the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in Japanese culture, whether that be architecture, cuisine, or landscapes.
Snow Machine is an all-in-one ticket offering a variety of accommodation options, a full four-day festival ticket as well as snow passes and hire. Booking is simple, just select your package, then pay your deposit of AUD $199 (~JP¥14,300) and you'll be put in touch with one of the festival team members to further customise your trip and book your flights with unbeatable discounts!
As a fully curated destination festival, we think Snow Machine is worth flying across the world for. Catch you there!
