In a time of 12-second Instagram Reels and disposable TikTok clips – shot on devices that fit in your pocket – Driven bears the fruits of a three-year harvest captured with state-of-the-art filming equipment. From Russia to Japan and Austria to North America, an all-time cast of heavy hitters went all-in in order to capture the most breathtaking shots, in the most unique locations. This film is about what drives us every day to get out there – which in turn hopefully motivates you as the viewer to do the same – to go snowboarding.
Riders: Victor Daviet, Gigi Rüf, John Jackson and Manuel Diaz
Production: Pirate Movie and Red Bull Media House.
Last April, Enzo, a high-level snowboarder familiar with Freestyle World Cups and their frenzy, discovered another facet of his discipline. That of adventure and the mountains. Alone with his snowboard and camping stuff attached to his bike, he goes through the Dolomites for a unique trip blending together splitboarding and freeriding sessions, happy encounters and tough moments. This is more than a snowboarding or road trip movie; this film is about freedom and the limits set by material attachment.
Rider: Enzo Valax
Production: Enzo Valax

There will be some noise in the park… Live performances will happen on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th, Feb. 22, right under your nose while you’ll be flying in the air!
Miss Leïa takes her drum & bass love to major festivals.

Expect some serious vibes there…
A music collector since a kid in Belgium, percussionist for over 15 years, Mountain Sushi is also a DJ ready to feed you with an organic masala of spicy tribal elements, mashed up with deep, groovy, psychedelic bleeps coming from all corners of the world, ranging from 70 to 130bpm. From chilled ethnic downbeat to minimalistic, groovy and psychedelic techno . Hop on and enjoy your ride! Without darkness, there would be no light…
You gonna get some heat on the snow with a Brazilian ensemble made of 20 mobile percussionists. La Boucada plays street music with a set of instruments (mostly percussions) that constitutes a « percussion battery » whose beat (batucada in Brazilian) is the origin of the name. Percussion drums are at the heart of Rio de Janeiro’s samba schools and provide the rhythmic part of their musical compositions. Get a taste right there at our Rookie Fest!
