Caprices has re-established Crans-reputation Montana’s during the past 20 years. It was formerly extremely popular in the 1970s and 1980s but lost favor until Caprices brought it to the attention of a new generation. Since then, the festival has expanded and changed to become one of the top underground events in the world, offering not only top-tier music but also countless daytime activities in the Alps and stimulating experiences for the body and soul.
As a result, Caprices offers a variety of unique features, including several spa and wellness facilities, cutting-edge audio-visual technology, opulent dining, an eco-museum, and spectacular panoramic views of the Alps. There are 140 km of ski and snowboard slopes, a top-notch snowpark, husky sledding, and many other activities available for thrill-seekers.
There will be five stages total for this special jubilee edition, two during the day and three at night. The enchanting experience is brought to life by the addition of dancers, actors, audiovisuals, and art installations on each stage, which each have their own distinct themes and fantastically realized producing.
The famed Modernity Stage, a famous glasshouse at 2,200 meters above sea level in the Swiss Alps, is open during the day and will host renowned DJs for some amazing musical experiences. The Club stage, on the other hand, is a concrete stage connected to the Modernity Stage with a glass wall overlooking the Alps and featuring some up-and-coming international artists as its musical guests.
The Moon Stage comes to life at night. It has been a crucial component of the Caprices Festival since the beginning and is renowned for its cutting-edge audiovisual production, which gives each act an extra dimension. The next level is the 2000-person Forest Stage, which will take partygoers deep into an alpine forest. The Dome Stage, which offers a superior audiovisual experience and sophisticated underground music, is last but certainly not least.
