Verbier’s biggest electro extravaganza, Polaris Festival 2017, has now unveiled its exciting lineup Set up in 2014, Polaris may still be in its infancy but what it lacks in experience it makes up for in high-quality artists and international headliners.
Polaris fuses breathtaking views with booming beats, bringing in crowds of more than 5,000 electro/house enthusiasts to celebrate a world-class lineup and immerse in the positive, festive atmosphere.
From the 7th to the 10th of December, festival goers will come together to enjoy music from over 40 artists at an altitude of over 2,000 metres in the middle of the Verbier ski slopes. What more could you ask for!
For the first time in Switzerland, Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers will be headlining Polaris Festival 2017. A native of Chicago, this world-famous DJ is a house legend with an extensive discography dating back to the 80s. Born in Russia, celebrated DJ, producer and singer Nina Kravitz will be joining the lineup with her mesmerising techno set.
In addition, father of techno Derrick May will party alongside Kenny Dope, Omar-S, Luciano and also the widely acclaimed Seth Troxler, adding to the list of widely acclaimed names. With a mix of such talent, the electro generation are in for a treat this year!
Last year, back in December, Polaris Festival took home the ‘Best Big Event’ accolade at the Swiss Nightlife Awards. This was the first year the event was nominated and the win only emphasises the full force of this festival on the Swiss nightlife scene.
The Polaris team were delighted to have won the award: “It is a great satisfaction because this kind of prize rewards the work it provides, as it offers national recognition. We may find it easier to reach new sponsors for the future, funding being always the nerve of the war for festivals,” Raphaël Nanchen, co-organiser of the Polaris Festival, told Le Nouvelliste.
