Now in its 11th year, Caprices Festival is the indispensible addition to everyone’s spring calendar. The unique hedonistic sporting experience of Switzerland’s premier music festival returns with an extensive ever eclectic line up, taking you from the snowy slopes of Crans-Montana to hectic club nights without skipping a beat.
This year's headliners include funk legend George Clinton, iconic DJ’s Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills, Carl Cox and Ricardo Villalobos and that’s just for starters.
Attracting over 60,000 visitors last year, the week long festival showcases all that’s essential in rock, pop, hip hop, folk, reggae and electronic music. Add a soupcon of Balkan beats, a pinch of hectic punk and a sprinkling of spoken word slams in addition to several surprise events and you have an explosive European musical stew.
In the nearby village there are three club nights and a day club ‘Modernity’ situated 2,200 metres above sea level for those weary of the slopes or just fancying a lunchtime dance. Après ski opportunities offer extensive international cuisine and the opportunity to drink world-class cocktails with new found friends in the dazzling mountain air.
Because Caprices have a bespoke boutique approach they’ve made it easy to customize your experience and tailor it to your every desire. Go heavy on the pistes? No problems, travel light and hire your gear there, easy! It’s about not sweating the small stuff and enjoying a truly unique mountain festival experience to the beat of your own drum.
This forward thinking festival has also taken important issues to heart and will be providing services for recycling and sustainable development so you don’t have to feel guilty whilst you’re having the best fun of your life.
A heady Alpine adventure awaits.
