The heat will quite literally be turned up at the Rekorderlig Poolside Party on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, so pack the bikinis and board shorts for this dive in party. The Rekorderlig Sounds in the Snow Series kicks off with a live free gig by electronic trio Crooked Colours. Hailing from Perth, they have played at Parklife, Wonderland & St Jerome’s Laneway festivals, and shared the stage with Flume & PNAU.

The Preatures, described as an exhilarating combination of rock and soul, will be headlining the free Corona Village Concert Series in Thredbo’s Village Square.

To kick things off Red Wine Roses will be warming up the snow crowd from 6.30pm. For those who haven’t had enough partying the Schuss Bar and Keller Bar will be open until late.
