With every detail carefully tailored to music-loving, well-being wanting and like-minded snow, ski and party-loving people, Rise Festival ticks the box on every level. The main stage, hosted by ground-breaking music promoters Ibiza Rocks will welcome a headline show from man of the moment Craig David. The platinum album-selling pioneer of UK Garage and RnB, Craig David and his critically acclaimed ‘TS5’ show has been one of the most talked about and relevant returns to music by an artist in decades, and he’s bringing it to a whole new level at Rise. Starting out as the most exclusive pre-party in Miami for his friends, hosted in his penthouse Tower Suite 5, ‘TS5’ showcases a master at work. Craig has a unique ability to sing, MC and whip the crowd into a frenzy while DJing simultaneously and banging out huge hits combining his own with massive old school anthems from RnB to Swing, Garage to Bashment and sun-soaked House. With Craig David you can count on a standout show to remember.
