Switzerland’s breathtaking Crans-Montana resort – which has become culturally significant around the world once more thanks to Caprices – is the famous home of this unrivalled mountain-top festival. It provides an unreal backdrop to what is an experience unlike any other with its mix of world class music, cutting edge audio-visual technology, luxury gastronomy, an eco-museum, mountain activities, spa and wellness centres and of course over 100km of snowy paradise and a snow park for skiers and snowboarders to explore.
That music comes this year on five stages split across day and night, each with its own carefully curated sound and bespoke look, rich mix of performing arts such as dancers, actors and art installations and many more surprises. Daytimes are all about the famous greenhouse that is Modernity Stage 2,200m up the Swiss Alps, while adjoining The Club stage has sweeping views over the alps. When night falls, The Moon Stage is a core part of Caprices festival with its innovative audiovisual production, while the Forest Stage is a fully themed and escapist trip into towering alpine forests. The Dome Stage completes the picture with more high-level audio visuals.
