Tomorrowland’s new winter festival, The Hymn of the Frozen Lotus, is headed to the French Alps this year, March 9-16. With less than a month until the festivities begin, load in for the festival has officially begun.

A few photos from the venue have made their way online — while not a breathtaking look at any of the complete stages or such, it’s still a unique look into the festival weeks before anyone is supposed to see it.

A variety of structures have begun to be erected in the Alpe d’Huez, the ski resort in the Alps hosting the festival. The most pictures show off an iron globe featuring the world’s countries with the official Tomorrowland logo suspended inside the hollow interior.

Another photo (show top right, below) shows what appears to be the beginnings of some sort of structure, but it’s impossible to tell what it might turn out to be.

The inaugural Tomorrowland Winter will feature Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, Nervo, and Steve Aoki; Kölsch, Joris Voorn, Solardo, and Nico Morano; as well as Timmy Trumpet, Netsky, our favorite dancefloor jokester Salvatore Ganacci, and more.

Select packages still remain for the festival — go here to find out more.
