The North Face Mountain Festival 2018:
the festival for explorers is back

Published by Mountainblog on .


From 27 to 29 July 2018, pack your Duffel bags, turn the Out-Of-Office on, and get ready for the biggest adventure weekend of the year. The North Face Mountain Festival returns, flying into Val San Nicolò, a magnificent valley branching off the Val di Fassa in one of Italy’s most famous mountain regions – The Dolomites.

Panoramic views of Italy’s most beautiful mountain terrain, the Dolomites, is the backdrop for the third edition of the wildest festival on the planet. Climb walls, hike and run breathtaking alpine trails as well as learning new skills from adventure photography to cooking up a wilderness feast. This is a long weekend that will leave your muscles tired, your spirits high, and your heart content.

Musicians and mountain athletes headline this year’s basecamp stage. Conrad Anker and David Lama will tell the tale of their second attempt on Lunag Ri (22,660 feet), one of the Himalayas’ last unclimbed peaks. During this climb, a blockage in Anker’s left anterior descending aorta, aka a heart attack, cut short the attempt. Following this epic premiere, Gallowstreet will turn up the sound, hit the strings, and take the party into the early hours.

All this and a hell of a lot more, but you need to move fast for a ticket! A limited run are available now (and tones more info) at from 149 EUR.
