More than 30 years in existence

The history of the festival

Record-breaking longevity

In 1989, a group of long-time friends, lovers of music, lake sun, and cocktails, organised a musical party. Held on a plot of land in the port of Crans, the warm and tropical atmosphere fits perfectly with this free event. What emerges from this Saturday night immediately forges the DNA of Caribana.

Over 30 years of joy

The Caribana continues to grow and offers itself a second stage in 1997. This year also sees the blues come to the festival for the first time, and a shuttle service is added to the organisation.

Today, the Caribana is still going strong. The impromptu festival of 1989 has blossomed to welcome tens of thousands of visitors and feature world-renowned artists such as Mika, Earth, Wind & Fire, Lou Reed, ZZ Top, Katy Perry, Queens of the Stone Age, Imagine Dragons, Kyo, Bastian Baker, and Patti Smith.
