(Crans-Montana, Switzerland; March 27th, 2022): Backstage is very pleased to announce a partnership with Caprices Fest, an annual music festival that takes place in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. The collaboration will drive awareness and increase adoption for the Backstage ecosystem.

The festival is set to take place across two weekends in April (8th — 10th and 15th — 17th). The partnership is one more step on the road to making the Backstage ecosystem a mainstream tool for the entertainment space.

Stepping into festivals has always been one of Backstage’s main goals as we get the word out while putting our tech solutions to the test. Plus, the benefits of NFT technology and crypto payments benefit both festival operators and their attendees.
