While most of us are anticipating Ultra Music Festival in Miami in three weeks, a lot of people are more excited for the objectively more imminent first edition of Tomorrowland Winter beginning in just two days.


With so much hype around the festival, local French news station France 3 visited the site of the festival in the Alpe D’Huez to take a look at the venue for themselves. Also interviewed were Jean-Yves Noyrey, Mayor of Alpe D’Huez, and Eric Petriccioli, manager of the restaurant Le Chantebise.

The week-long festival, the first of its kind in the French alps, will feature five stages across the venue. The first stage featured in the footage is the expansive main stage, Hymn of the Frozen Lotus. Also shown is L’Orangerie — it’s been reported that high winds in the area tore part of the roof off of the building last night, but organizers are rushing to have it ready by Saturday.

Watch the unique and exclusive first-hand footage below.
