Win 2 Tickets, Horizon Festival Competition

HORIZONS BANNER copyFrom the 8th of March the sleepy slopes of Bansko, Bulgaria will be the home of Horizon Festival. The 6-day festival returns to Bankso, perhaps the most extraordinary festival location ever imagined. After its baptism last year, Horizon Festival is in complete harmony with these Bulgarian uplands and uses Mother Nature itself as décor and a natural playground, allowing the surrounding snow to enhance the atmosphere and deepen the sound.

This year Horizon is set to re-affirm its status as a forward thinking musical festival by confirming a selection of top shelf artists like Kerri Chandler, Bondax, Âme, Roy Davis Jr. KiNK, Catz ‘N Dogz and Detroit Swindle -offering a broad spectrum of House, Techno, Garage, Bass and Groove and providing several label takeovers and showcase events.

With opportunities of hitting slopes at heights of 2,600 meters and several stages located off piste where the eclectic selection of DJs and live acts start from 2pm every day - Horizons bridges the gap between a classic UK festival and a high-end winter sport experience by mingling the best of both worlds.

The Forest Stage & The Secret Hotel heats up throughout the afternoon, bringing a banging warehouse style party vibe to the mountain later in the evening. Imagine hitting the slopes, skiing between stages, enchanted by the magic of these mountains and end up in forest somewhere off piste to see Kerri Chandler perform, truly brilliant!

Moreover the festival has a 24hour mentality, hosting many activities like daily yoga classes, spa packages, discounted skiing or snowboard lessons for festival-goers and the opportunities that the town of Bankso offers itself; with over 140 local restaurants, countless bars and clubs resulting in a established nightlife.

1521412 264725673683270 2058824644 nHorizon offers an alternative festival as the winter reaches its end and just before the madness of Spring starts to kick in. MEOKO joined hands with them and we’re happy to give away a pair of tickets – that’s two tickets for the non-mathematicians among us.

Simply send us an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
