The organiser of Snowboxx Festival has revealed it is increasing capacity at the week-long snow and music festival.

Snowboxx, which takes place in the resort of Avoriaz, France, has raised capacity to 6,000.

The festival’s main stage is built beneath a backdrop of mountains with a full outdoor festival arena created on a blanket of snow. The first artists for Snowboxx 2018 will be announced in September, with previous acts including Basement Jaxx, Rag N Bone Man and Stormzy.

Features for the 2018 festival will include bottomless brunches, igloo sessions, human bowling and a night time snowball fight.
