Music is very much present in Crans-Montana, which has a classical music season with concert-events and high level violin masterclasses. Many festivals and music events take place all year round, to the joy of all kinds of music lovers, notably the « Caprices Festival », which was voted the best electro festival in the world, and which takes place every year in a dreamlike setting at an altitude of 2,200m.

From folk music to electro, all types of music can be found in Crans-Montana, all year round. You’ll find all of the main music events that make our region resonate in both summer and winter here.
