For its 16th time taking place, Caprices Festival is also adding a next wave of artists to its line-up: in the stunning ski resort of Crans-Montana in Switzerland from April 11th to 14th you will also be able to hear Acid Pauli, Dana Ruh, Mathew Jonson, Nico Stojan, Nordstern’s Olivan, Friedas Buxe’s San Marco and Don Ramon. These names come on top of the already voluminous line-up which includes Apollonia, Jamie Jones, Len Faki, DVS1, Marcel Dettmann, Peggy Gou, Pan Pot, Raresh, Black Coffee, Bedouin, Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler and Sven Väth.

 

The new Satellite stage (the third one) will feature a special opening party on Thursday 11th, the first night of the festival, including Nico Stojan, Britta Arnold, Acid Pauli and Madnax, as well as showcasing local Swiss talent throughout the weekend. Additionally, Vietnam’s Epizode will take over the stage on Saturday night with Alci, Dana Ruh, Tyoma and Mashkov.

 

The new third stage will be positioned alongside The Moon—which is located at the bottom of the Cry D’er Ski Lifts and boasts out-of-this-world technology and visual displays, adding another sensory stimulating dimension to the soundtrack—plus the world renowned MDRNTY, a one-off, greenhouse-like structure that sits 2200m above sea level offering panoramic views of the crystalline skies and snow-capped mountain vista.

 

Caprices this year will also present MDRNTY’s Urban Nature Tour concept; natural outdoors will be brought inside to larger venues and spaces. The Caprices team will be working along with the audiovisual production company DubLab who previously operated with Time Warp, Cocoon and many other top notch organizations, raising the expectations of an out of the ordinary experience.

We are extremely excited about the latest addition to the line-up too! Wagon Repair legend Mathew Jonson will bring his techno live show known as one of the bests around for a while. Cocoon’s deep house star Dana Ruh will also join the line-up, together with the inventive electronic wizards Acid Pauli and Nico Stojan, plus the local Swiss talents San Marco and Don Ramon — co-founders of one Zurich’s most renowned venues, Freidas Buxe — Nordstern’s Olivan, Folklor club’s Adolpho & Franky and MDRNTY residents James Mc Hale & Giorgio Maulini.

 

Caprices is not only a music festival but allows its attendants to experience much more: from award-winning restaurants to mountain huts, from boutique shops to an eco-museum and illuminated ice-rink, there is so much to explore in the surroundings. Especially if you are a ski/snowboard rider, the 140km of ski pistes and vast snow park on location are just waiting for you. All in all, Caprices confirmes to be the ultimate winter destination for festival-goers.
