What's on in Chamonix April 2019

Spring is officially in the air. April brings warmer days, longer evenings and a plethora of events throughout the Chamonix Valley.

Take a look at our pick of the best events, parties and activities to do in Chamonix this month. 

Chamonix Unlimited Festival - 2nd-7th April

The Chamonix Unlimited Festival has quickly established itself not only as one of the Alps’ best festival but as one of the premier dance and electronic music festivals in Europe. This year’s line-up features even more big names, from Laurent Garnier to Belgian brothers 2manydjs and house mogul Roger Sanchez. The venues are similarly epic with parties at the top of the Aiguille de Midi or at Planpraz, in front of the Mont Blanc range, as well as in aprés-ski hubs like La Folie Douce and Les Caves.

Braderie de Chamonix - 6th-7th April

An end of season sale with a difference, at the Braderie de Chamonix all the shops in town empty their store rooms onto the street market-style, slash prices and attempt to get rid of the remainder of their stock. You’ll find lots of bargain-bins full of socks, gloves, hats and other such accessories but you’ll also be able to get great deals on everything, from outerwear to skis. On top of bagging a bargain, the atmosphere in town is fun as the streets are packed with people and market stalls.

Magic Mont Blanc Festival - 10th-14th April

Magic Mont Blanc returns to Chamonix for its second edition after an incredibly successful first run. Celebrating the mystical art of magic, Eric Antoine presents four evenings with some of France’s top magical talent including Alexandra Duvivier, Blake Eduardo, Jérôme Helfenstein, Ben Rose and Calista Sinclair. Card tricks, illusions, mentalism and a lot more in a festival that is perfect for the whole family.

Family Holidays in Chamonix

Sweden vs France ice hockey match - 4th April

An annual tradition in the valley, the Sweden vs France ice hockey match is a friendly competition involving two of the largest local communities in Chamonix – the indigenous Frenchies and the Scandi ski bums – who play against each other for a good cause. The atmosphere is amazing as hundreds of Chamoniards flock to the ice rink to support their team, and the party continues well after the match.

Musilac Mont-Blanc - 26th-28th April

Rounding off the month, and the season for many, Musilac Mont-Blanc Festival is back for its second year bringing some pop-rock and hip-hop vibes to town. In a more traditional festival setup, all the concerts will take place at the paragliding landing field just outside the centre of town, in the Bois de Bouchet. Headliners include indie prodigies Two Door Cinema Club and The Kooks, 90's hit rocker Eagle Eye Cherry and classical guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. With concerts starting in the afternoon, there’s plenty of time to enjoy some spring skiing before watching the sun go down to a pop-rock soundtrack from the most beautiful stage in the world.

Après-ski

There is still time to enjoy Chamonix's legendary aprés-ski parties before the season comes to an end. This winter, La Folie Douce has taken the aprés-ski hotspot crown with its regular Disco Mondays, WTF Wednesdays and Back to the 90's Fridays bashes. For a more relaxed affair, Taco Tuesdays at Monkey Bar offer three for two deals on their famous tacos and dangerously good tequila for only €1.50 a shot.
