If you are looking for a unique theme for an end of October holiday or vacation, you might want to consider the Relentless Energy Drink’s Freeze Festival held in Battersea, London during the last weekend of October. Formerly known as “London Freeze”, the Freeze Festival is the UK’s ultimate music and snow festival that is held in the Battersea Power Station of London. It is a sports competition involving the best skiers and snowboarders in the world and a line-up of musicians to match.

You can watch your favorite skiers and snowboarders while chilling out at one of the best vantage points in the area, namely the Après Ski Bar. Once you have spent the day watching competitors do there thing on the massive ski ramp, you can party on into the night while watching key acts such as Pendulum, Roni Size, live DJ’s, and many other bands. They will be performing across three stages so in essence, the entertainment never ends until late into the night.
You’ll be able to visit numerous vending stalls that sell tons of snow boards and clothing as well as many other items for winter and winter sports. While shopping, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for the mountain bike riders that display their skills on the ski ramp at regular intervals (see above in the prior paragraph). It’s never too late to get your accommodation, flight, and festival tickets reserved since the festival doesn’t happen until the 28th and 29th of October this year.
Tickets for adults and children are still very reasonable. The following is a breakdown of the pricing for the entire weekend or day passes for adults and children:
- Adult weekend £86
- Children weekend £35
- Adult day pass £36
- Children day pass £15
For only being a two-day event, the Relentless Freeze Festival takes in quite an array of entertainment. There will be headliner acts announced shortly in the Après Ski Bar and the Desperados dome, but the main stage line-up includes:
Friday, October 28th – Azari & III, Beardyman, Dub Pistols, Groove Armada Red Light (headliner), and Zane Lowe
Saturday, October 29th – Everything Everything, The Joy Formidable, Rizzle Kicks, Spector, The Streets (headliner), and Summer Camp
These are the acts that are going to appear on the Main Stage while they have yet to announce the acts that will be held during Relentless Live. In addition to the musical line-up, the Freeze Festival’s competition line-up includes:
Friday, October 28th – International Free-Style ski
Saturday, October 29th – snowboard World Cup
At the time this content was written, there were still plenty of tickets available. But the closer we get to festival time, the faster those tickets are going to go.
