Caprices Festival in Switzerland heights with Villalobos, Hawtin and Vath

After ten editions spent at the site of the Régent, Caprices Festival will be moved into Crans-Montana, transforming the village into an extended festival zone. A new format for the Festival has been designed in order to integrate the village into the festival. This new layout, where multiple stages, stands, and free events are based in the village, is certain to a yield a festive atmosphere in the streets and provide additional exposure to the region. For this 11th edition of Caprices, the program will showcase the most influential contemporary djs alongside top acts from folk, reggae, Balkan music, chanson française, hip-hop, and funk.

For the last five years, Modernity@Caprices has offered electronic music aficionados a clubbing experience at high elevation. Following the lead from the main Festival, this edition will see Modernity on the move, taking headquarters on the terrace of Violette, located at 2,200 meters. The concept remains the same: the finest contemporary DJs on the decks under a transparent tent, offering clubbers a daytime dance experience with a fantastic view over some of the highest peaks of Europe. The previewed line-up for April 11 includes sets from Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Benoit & Sergio, and Shlomi aber. On April 12, Ricardo Villalobos will take over the decks alongside a feminine contingent of Magda, tInI and Masaya. On April 13th, Sven Väth will play an exceptional set with Ezikiel and Alejandro Mosso in company. In the other Electronic stage, The Moon, you will dance with Carl Cox, Marco Carola, Gesaffelstein, Jeff Mills, and many more.
