HistoryLittle World Festival was inspired by the band's last trip to Meribel, in 2008. On that visit, they played a free gig on the piste to 6,000 fans in what marked a triumphant return for a group of friends who, years earlier, had performed three sets a day in the resort's bars. The 2008 trip formed the basis of a live DVD, 'Come Home', featuring narration by friend-of-the-band Kiefer Sutherland.
Getting thereBy Plane: If you are flying there are three main airports you can fly into. They all take around 2 and a half hours to drive to Meribel. Lyon Airport (BA, EasyJet or Swiss from London airports and most other UK airports, Geneva Airport (EasyJet, Swiss, BA), and Grenoble Airport (EasyJet and RyanAir). The easiest and most stress free way to get from the airport to Meribel is by hire car.
By Train: Eurostar offers an international high-speed service from Kings Cross to Moutier in the French Alps. The journey time is around 7 hours and since Moutier is only a 15 minute drive from Meribel, there is no lengthy airport transfer.
