The final names playing at the Caprices Festival are out and we are so pumped up!

For its 14th edition, the festival will see the headliners Villalobos, Talaboman, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, and Apollonia joined by Mathew Jonson, Craig Richards, Sonja Moonear, Kerri Chandler, Dorian PaicFranky Greiner and more.

Spread over three different stages positioned on both, the top and bottom of the slopes, this festival will see electronic music being played on unique snow-clad hilltops from 6th to 9th April 2017. At Caprices Festival, more than 30 of today’s prominent artists will be gathering in Crans-Montana, transforming the Valaisan resort in Switzerland into the capital of EDM!

A restaurant, meeting and clubbing venue combined, perched at an altitude of 2,220m, the Cry d’Er – Club d’Altitude will be hosting this event for the first time. Located right on top of the ski runs, the venue offers a breath-taking panoramic view.

The inauguration evening for the third stage of the festival (Saturday, 8th April) will see Ricardo Villalobos performing solo with Seth Troxler on the MDRNTY stage in the afternoon. Sonja Moonear, Franky Greiner, and Dorian Paic will follow. Techno lovers are in luck as Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann and the Talaboman duo will be filling in later.

I wanted to create a completely different atmosphere for our premiere at the Cry d’ER,” explains Maxime Léonard, the festival director. “Ricardo Villalobos will be there and, despite being a regular at Caprices, each of his sets is always a surprise. His musical tone is exactly what I was looking for for this event. Melodious and cosmic.

The members of Apollonia already made Paris’ best clubs vibrate with their solo performances in the 90s, and now these bosses of deep house will be firing up the Moon, accompanied by another king of the genre, American house hero Kerri Chandler, who only comes to Switzerland twice a year.” “With the Caprices festival, we have always sought to innovate and to give both the public and artists more and more each year, and in 2017 we shall do that once more,” concludes Maxime Léonard.
