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, designed to showcase the more minimal inclined brands and artists. 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, Sunrise Events, Picnic London, UNUM Festival & more each night.
Thirdly an additional new stage concept has been revealed for this year’s edition – the Signal Stage, another night time stage which boasts a vast industrial-warehouse space nestled in the beautiful forests of Arnouva, it will be here that guests can experience more throttling sounds of the world’s finest big room techno acts and brands.
