The Caprices Festival at Crans-Montana in Switzerland rapidly became the springtime musical event not to be missed
The Caprices Festival was founded in 2004 by five music lovers determined to connect their region to the international music scene and who were convinced that they could create an event that stood out from the others by virtue of its location and originality.
Their determination paid off, as Caprices rapidly became the springtime musical event not to be missed. After a first edition in which 10,000 visitors participated, the festival‘s notoriety and size quickly grew over the years. Caprices has built a strong international reputation thanks to its exceptional location in the Swiss Alps, its eclectic and high-quality programming of world-renowned artists, and its showcasing of new and upcoming Swiss talent. From Lou Reed to Iggy Pop, Scorpions, Samael, Robert Plant, Bjà¶rk, Portishead, Nas, Fatboy Slim, Erykah Badu, Deep Purple, Mika, Nelly Furtado, etc., the Caprices Festival has been host to some of the biggest and best artists in the world. For the last 10 years Caprices Festival has showcased the essentials from hip-hop, rock, pop-folk, reggae, and electronic music including Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, Sven Và¤th, and Carl Craig.
