Over the last 20 years, Caprices Festival has established itself as an idyllic travel experience, winter sports haven and world-class music festival all rolled into two unmissable weekends. It has also put Crans-Montana back on the map as a popular resort for music, sport and culture lovers and once again this Spring it will offer not just top-level music but also endless daytime adventures in the Alps and body and soul-enriching experiences.
It is a true feast for all the senses with breathtaking panoramic views across the Alps, luxury gastronomic experiences, an eco-museum, mountain activities, multiple spa and wellness centres, 140km of pistes for skiing and snowboarding, a next-level snowpark, husky sledding and so much more.
The music plays both day and night across world-renowned stages all with their own unique theme. This year there is brand new production across the entire festival so expect even more high-spec audiovisuals and art installations. The world-renowned Modernity Stage has a Sky theme and is chief amongst them and is an iconic glasshouse at 2,200m up the Swiss Alps that will welcome big-name DJs for some unforgettable musical memories this year. It will be open even longer on Sundays with official afterparties on both weekends meaning people should book their stays till late Mondays.
The Club stage is a concrete stage attached to the Modernity Stage with a glass wall overlooking the Alps and soundtracked by some fresh talents from around the world. Then comes the Forest Stage which represents the surface of the earth and is forest-themed with a 2000 capacity that transports partygoers deep into alpine woodland while the brand new Cube Stage is all about underground sounds. The legendary Cocoon label is celebrating its 25th year in 2024 and will be hosting a stage of its own to mark the occasion, while The Moon stage is completely dedicated to the fine array of live performances booked for this edition.
