The Relentless Energy Drink Freeze Festival is back again for another two days of world class snowboarding, skiing and live music, taking place across five stages at one of London's most iconic locations – Battersea Power Station.
Besides all the sport and live music, you'll also find alpine-style bars, a giant shopping village selling all manner of winter-related knick-knacks, and a ton of top-notch food and drink stalls to keep your belly full and your body warm.
Competing in the skiing and snowboarding events will be athletes at the top of their game, including the likes of the Helgason brothers, Victor de la Rue, Jossi Wells, Jacob Wester and Henrik Harlaut.
To ensure you get the best first possible view, Freeze is introducing grandstand seating for the first time in its four-year history.
The music line-up features what the organisers are promising will be "one of the most explosively genre-spanning sets since its inception" and includes the likes of Public Enemy, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Shadow, A-Yo (Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe), and DJ E-Z.
The fun starts at midday on both the Friday and the Saturday and runs through the evening until 10.30pm.
A one-day ticket for Freeze Festival 2012 costs £40 for adults and £20 for children, while a two-day ticket costs £65 for adults and £35 for children. These prices are for tickets bought in advance, so expect to pay more if you turn up on the day without one.
If Freeze Festival 2012 delivers even half of the fun and energy it's promising, it'll surely be money well spent and the perfect way to say hello to winter.
