The 10 years of the High Five
That's it, this year the High Five Festival is finally entitled to it: the alternative ski festival will be able to blow out its tenth candle and intend to celebrate it properly. Considered the Cannes ski festival, this unifying event which brings together an average of 25,000 people has become THE unmissable event in Annecy. From 1st to 3rd October 2021, the High Five Festival will be held for the second time in the Gardens of the Imperial Palace, a legendary hotel in the city which will obviously house the founder, Gaylord Pedretti, but also partners, athletes and speakers on masterclasses and conferences..
A most entertaining program for this 1st decade (which we hope, will not be the last one...)
The High Five Festival is three days of a busy program combining film screenings in European or world premieres, masterclasses, concerts, and a village of brands. Indeed, more than 30 brands and stations will be present (Armada, Dynastar, Glisshop, Snowleader, Cairn etc.) to unveil their new equipment and will also be the meeting place for signing sessions with international pro-rides, medalists, and Olympic champions such as Marine Martinod, Kevin Rolland, Antoine Adelisse and company...
Dear to Gaylord Pedretti, the High Five University transmits to future generations the passion for an occupation sometimes unknown like his. During the masterclass, he will come to discuss events and resilience, following the health crisis experienced and various professionals in the cinema, photography, entrepreneurship and digital will also animate these interesting meetings.
In the Salle de l'Europe, the High Five Comedy Up continues to amuse the gallery! Tom Villa and Laurie Peret will succeed Maxime Gastueil, Kheiron, Baptiste Lecaplain, Guillermo Ruiz and we guarantee that the public always leaves doubled up laughing... See you on 1st and 2nd October at 8:30 p.m. And on the Rotonde side, animated "Think Tank" conferences will give you the floor around various sports topics, at 4 pm on Friday and 11 am on Saturday/Sunday.
Always so delirious and surprising, this anniversary edition will bring life to the Jardins de l'Impérial: zip line from the 3rd floor of the hotel, all kinds of trampolines, skimboarding spot hosted by Dakine, parkour zone and skate ramp, you won't know where to head! Food trucks like The Roaster, Frit'land or Atelier Nomad will satisfy your little appetites and give you the energy you need to vibrate to the sound of birthday concerts. Myd, Julien Granel, Chilla, Caballero and other artists will be there during the day, as in the evening for a successful musical cocktail!
As you can see, the High Five Festival will mark the start of the winter season for lovers of skiing and we hope to see you there... :)
