Having been awarded Best International Festival 2018, all eyes were on Caprices this weekend as its 16th edition brought music to the mountains of Crans Montana.The 4-day festival hosted over 40 world class electronic artists over three stages, drawing 25,000 revellers to the idyllic Swiss Alps. Back once again due to popular demand, Caprices put on a show to remember for an international crowd of techno-lovers.
On Thursday evening, the first crowds through the doors warmed up the dancefloor of the Satellite stage, an intimate globe-shaped tent with mind-melting visuals by Romanian visual artist Cote projected 360 degrees across its walls. This was the first sign of Caprices’ goal to provide a fully immersive experience to its guests. The animated visuals danced and warped seamlessly across the ceiling in blues and yellows, providing the perfect accompaniment to the artists playing the opening night. The main room, The Moon, remained illusively concealed behind velvet curtains... the crowds would have to wait patiently to see what was in store.
