DJ Arthur Monné lights up the French Alps, with mountain top set in Morzine

The Morzine Tourism office invites music lovers to tune in to YouTube on Friday 13 August to watch local DJ Arthur Monné (AKA FastArthur) perform an incredible set from the French Alps. The video stream will see an hour-long show, performed from a spectacular viewing platform at the summit of Pointe de Nyon. The walkway, called Le Pas de l’Aigle, was unveiled this summer and offers a breath-taking 360° views from Lake Geneva to Mont Blanc.

Arthur Monné was born and bred in Morzine and comes from a line of hoteliers. His parents run the local four-star Bergerie in the centre of the French Alpine resort. Monné has loved music from an early age, playing drums then the piano, and later becoming interested in electronica. He has a passion for all types of house music, but his inspiration comes from his time in the mountains, a theme which has influenced his set. Monné regularly DJ’s at his aunt’s hotel, the Tremplin in Morzine, providing the après-ski and après-bike soundtrack for holidaymakers from all over the world.

Against the backdrop of the early evening dusk, Monné’s show takes place at an altitude of 2,019m on the new 10m long glass walkway. Online viewers will get to experience up close shots of the performance, interspersed with impressive drone footage of the surrounding mountains. The solo set encompasses a range a styles and genres, with the climax of the performance coinciding with sunset.

Morzine is well-known for its live events and eclectic music scene. Throughout the winter and summer, visitors can enjoy bands and DJs at the likes of the Bec Jaune microbrewery, the famed Bar Robinsons, and at the base of the pistes. And each ski season the biggest event its kind graces the mountains of Morzine, with the Rock the Pistses festival combining multiple concerts on the slopes of the wider Portes du Soleil region.

To view the Pas de l’Aigle X FastArthur set, head to the MorzineTV YouTube channel at 6pm (BST) on Friday 13 August.
