Little World Festival is a festival hosted by The Feeling held in the ski resort of Meribel, in the French Alps, scene of the band's earliest gigs. The festival happens from Saturday 12th until Saturday 19th March 2011.

The band will curate more than 30 separate events, from small bar gigs, to an indoor dance party, to a huge (and completely free!) on-piste main show. Fans buying a wristband will be able to attend all of the week's events.


The Feeling, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Graham Goldman and Squeeze's Glen Tilbrook are the first acts to be announced. One night will feature intimate collaborations between all of the artists.


Ticket prices have not yet been confirmed, and tickets are not yet on sale.


Little 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 there

By 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.
