Modernity stage

For the past twelve years, Modernity has offered electronic music aficionados an unparalleled clubbing experience in unique contexts and in stunning natural settings. The concept showcases the finest contemporary electronic music DJs in a transparent tent, offering clubbers a daytime party experience with fantastic panoramic views over various locations in Switzerland. Previous editions of Modernity have welcomed some of the most esteemed DJs on the planet, including: Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Jamie Jones, Luciano, Martinez Brothers, Seth Troxler, Ben Klock and many more. With multiple events per year, Modernity events always target spectacular settings (e.g. mountaintops, cruise ships, forrests, hot air balloons, gondolas) under unique conditions (e.g. daytime parties) and are reputed for their indescribable, ephemeral experience. The quality and careful selection of the music and the creativity behind the organization and location of the event have earned Modernity the title of “Best Event” at the Swiss Nightlife Awards in both 2012 and 2014 and a winner of Best International Festival Award 2018 by DJ Awards Ibiza. At Caprices Festival, Modernity takes place at the Swiss-Alps mountaintop in an enhancing setting at an altitude of 2,200 meters.

It’s a much-anticipated event that has a cult following of unique clubbers.
