Caprices Festival is globally recognised for its unique and striking glass Modernity Stage (pictured above), set at the tip of the Swiss alps in the picturesque ski resort of Crans-Montana. From the moment of stepping into the bubble lift to head upwards, guests are engulfed with excitement. You only need to party at Modernity once as one of the most talked about music venues in the world, to understand why Caprices Festival is so special. The stand alone greenhouse-like structure sits 2,200m above sea level offering guests panoramic views of the crystalline skies and snow-capped mountain vista whilst partying amidst the crisp mountain air of the Swiss Alps.

The second Forest Stage was revealed in 2020, built as its name suggests, the more intimate space is situated in the middle of the forest, in the old intermediate station of the cable-car line. The circular cabin style structure offers dancers a 360-degree view out into the forest and across the mountain-scope through the windows which circulate all the way round, and will host international stage brands Epizode Festival (Vietnam), Picnic (London) & UNUM Festival (Albania).

Thirdly an additional new stage concept has been revealed for this year’s edition – the Signal Stage, another night time stage which will be nestled in the beautiful forests of Arnouva, it will be here that guests will be able to experience a variety of underground music from all corners of the world. Brands who will be hosting the Signal Stage include Movement Festival (Italy), Sunrise Events (Romania) and the Netherlands’ Techno V.

Caprices Festival once again offers an ultimate mountain escape and idyllic holiday experience which any music and outdoor lover must experience, at least once, in their lifetime. Tickets can be purchased for any of the individual days and stages, with daytime tickets giving access to the Modernity Stage and nighttime tickets giving access to The Signal and The Forest stage.
