For 5 days, from the 24th to the 28th of March; the 12 French -Swiss Resorts of the Portes du soleil, rocked to the rhythms of the ‘Rock the Pistes Festival’ 2012. A variety of free open air concerts taking place all over the pistes of the portes du soleil, from Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets and Chatel in France to the Swiss resorts of Morgins and Champery- Les Crosets.
Louis Bertignac kicked off the festival at the top of the pleney pistes in Morzine. The Ex guitarist of the famous french band the telephone and now a mediatised judge on the hit series ‘The Voice’, had a storming concert, with a backdrop of amazing mountain scenery, the mont blanc just opposite and party goers from 3 year olds to 60 year olds, all getting into the groove.
He was followed during the week with perfomances from ‘Gerald de Palmas, Mani, Shaka Ponk, Lys and the new British Band Archive Acoustic who started their 2012 tour right here in the Portes du soleil. A fantastic time was had by all……
