About us

Mainstage Festivals currently operates Snowboxx Festival and Kala Festival. Snowboxx is a Snow and Music Festival held in the French Alps and takes place in March every year. Kala was launch this summer on the coast of Albania. The first ever international festival to take place in Albania was considered a resounding success for a first year festival.

Snowboxx Festival was launched in 2012 and over the past 5 years has grown to become one of Europe’s biggest snow festivals with almost 6,000 people attending from the UK and Europe. The event takes place in the beautiful ski resort of Avoriaz, France and features an amazing collection of international artists, incredible skiing and a full programme of experiences.

Kala Festival takes place along the Albanian Riviera, a prime new festival destination that features a mountainous backdrop that overlooks crystal clear waters. The festival will be taking place in the middle of June each year and will host a selection of carefully chosen music acts that cross through genres like disco, funk, house and anything that you can picture dancing away on a secluded beach too.

Mainstage Festivals will be launching new projects in the coming years with further expansion to the team to manage a wider range of festivals and events.
