The high-end EDM festival in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, has some big names on the line-up this year.
CAPRICES Festival is returning to the snow-capped peaks of the Crans-Montana ski resort in Switzerland this April and released its line-up today.
The festival will take place over two weekends, with April 8-10 featuring names like Dixon, Cassy, Guti, Archie Hamilton, Jamie Jones and more. The second weekend will run from April 15-17 and see Sven Väth, Marco Faraone, and a very special Luciano b2b Ricardo Villalobos set. Catch their b2b from last year below:
Caprices also announced today that it will be hosting a new NFT summit before the first weekend of the festival that will take place on April 6 and 7, before the festival officially begins on April 8.
The festival has teamed up with crypto app SwissBorg to host the summit which will take place in the unique Modernity glasshouse at 2,200m in the Swiss Alps.
The summit will reportedly aim to blend music, arts and blockchain through themes like NFTs and the metaverse, and will bring together artists, investors, collectors, tech companies and members of the public to speak about all things tech.
Founder and Artistic Director of the festival Maxime Léonard said: “NFT and Metaverse technologies offer revolutionary prospects for the music industry and the arts in general. With Caprices, we have always sought to be at the heart of novelty, and being among the first to offer an artistic event combining real and virtual life excites us a lot.”
A day of workshops on April 7 will be followed by an NFT Art Auction Dinner, then an afterparty at après ski hotspot Zerodix. Full details of the summit can be found here.
Caprices is predominantly a techno and house festival known around the world not only for its heaving parties that run late into the night, but it’s also a place to enjoy some alpine luxury.
Crans-Montana has a beautiful mixture of traditional architecture, hundreds of kilometres of great skiing, esteemed eateries, art exhibitions, and several spa and wellness centres.
Artists will be performing across three stages – the Forest Stage, Signal Stage and the iconic glass Modernity Stage which looks down on the Crans-Montana resort.
