Caprices Festival is on 17-19 and 24-26 September in Switzerland
Swiss festival Caprices returns to the Crans-Montana resort for its 18th year on 17-19 and 24-26 September, and the first names have just been announced.
As ever, the centrepiece of the festival will be the Modernity Stage, a giant greenhouse-like structure sitting 2,200m above sea level in the Swiss Alps. The second Forest Stage, which is snuggled in among the trees and was introduced at last year's festival (one of the very few worldwide that actually went ahead!), will be hosted by a variety of international partners including Epizode, UNUM and Picnic London, while 2021 sees the addition of a third Signal Stage, which is housed in a warehouse space.
There are plenty more names to be announced, including a “special main stage headline guest”, but here's what we know about the line-ups so far…
Modernity: Bedouin, Behrouz, Cesar Marveille B2B Alci, Chaim, Guy Gerber, Luciano B2B Ricardo Villalobos, Lunar Disco, Mathew Jonson (live), Nicolas Duvoisin, Patrischa, Tia
