Each year during the Kappa Futur Festival, an obsolete, post-industrial space in the vibrant city of Turin, Italy called Parco Dora comes alive with thousands of dancing young people from all over the globe. The revelries go on the entire day through midnight for two days, sending people home with legs aching from dancing and ears and minds buzzing with memories of pulsating dance, trance, and house music in what becomes, year after year, the best European summer ever.
The stunning green space that is Parco Dora is an obsolete facility in Turin, but the Kappa Festival breathes new life into it with phenomenal EDM music.
Italy’s industrial past is remembered in the 7,500 square-meter venue which once served as a car factory, notably with its tall steel pillars, chimneys, and tanks among others which become one with the stages and its lush green environment to deliver a truly one-of-a-kind festival experience. More than its unique venue, the festival has gained a reputation in the continent because its sheer popularity continues to attract over 75 nationalities. Not only has it been the recipient of the European Commission Patronage, but it’s also Italy’s very first 100% daytime festival. Choose your fuel from a 20-meter long bar, and select from a terrific range of delicious food at the food court. Rest assured, Kappa Futur Festival organizers always see to it that you will have an unforgettable time at the event, complete with the essentials. Just bring yourself and your good vibes; everything else is provided for you.
