Caprices Festival is making its return to the snowy Swiss alps for its 16th edition this coming weekend. The event takes place in Crans-Montana, a ski resort village in Southern Switzerland. The awe-inspiring backdrops are suitable only for the very best that Techno has to offer. In fact, Caprices Festival welcomes the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Pan-Pot and many more April 11th – 14th.
Last year’s edition saw the event win the Best International Festival at the 2018 DJ Awards. Nevertheless, it seems this year’s will be even greater. Previous editions of the festival hosted two stages, one at the the bottom of the Cry D’er Ski Lifts (The Moon) and one that sits 2200m above sea level and accessible only by cablecar (MDRNTY). This year will see the opening of a third stage, Satellite. Satellite is located near The Moon and features a special opening party on Thursday April 11th. Additionally, Satellite will showcase Swiss artists throughout the weekend so be sure to check that out.
Perhaps the most breath-taking venue at Caprices is MDRNTY. The stage consists of a one-off, greenhouse-like dome with panoramic views of the world renown Swiss alps. The stage plays host to two of the most anticipated sets: Ricardo Villalobos’ Friday sunset set and Sven Väth who closes out the stage Sunday from 5pm to 8pm.
Apart from the world-class lineup, Caprices Festival offers everything you’d expect from a music festival held in the Swiss Alps. The village offers high end restaurants, a wellness center, boutique shops, and nearly 100 miles of the finest ski powder Switzerland has to offer.
