Battersea is not usually known for being the centre of the snowboarding universe, but for one weekend in October (29th-31st to be precise), this slightly scruffy area on the South Bank of the Thames will be hosting some of our sport’s biggest stars. Yes, the Relentless Freeze Festival is returning to the UK’s capital for the third year in a row, bringing its unique mix of world-class music and world-class shredding with it. Set in the Mad Max-esque landscape next to the iconic Battersea Power Station, the festival boasts a line-up to die for, with drum n’ bass legend Roni Size headlining on the Friday, and hipster extraordinaire Mark Ronson closing proceedings on the Saturday night. Sunday night will see drum n’ bass come metal band Pendulum finishing things off in raucous style. Other confirmed acts include the Scratch Perverts, Nextmen, and Canada’s Bedouin Soundclash, and that’s before we even get onto the snowboarding!
The organisers will be erecting a monstrous real snow kicker on a sketchy-looking scaffold outside the power station, and inviting some of the world’s best riders to hurl themselves off it. Friday will host the Whitelines Battle of Britain comp, giving the UK’s finest homegrown talent a chance to strut their stuff, while Saturday features an FIS Big Air competition. Although the rider list for the comps is as yet unconfirmed, previous years have seen the likes of Danny Kass, Risto Mattila, Chris Sorman and Stefan Gimpl turn up to throw down, so you can expect big things. As well as the stars going for glory on the big kicker, there’s a couple of massive names just turning up to enjoy the show, including Jeremy Jones (who’ll be premiering his new film Deeper on the Friday) and the Yes Snowboards crew – Romain de Marchi, JP Solberg and DCP. And Whitelines will of course be down there getting involved in the action and running our annual lunge contest from our stand.
