Last weekend one of the most awaited events of the Festival Season 2022 is back to the scene: the Kappa FuturFestival in Turin.

Over 70 artists took place on the 4 stages set up in the Dora Park, for over 36 hours of music, in a frame that saw the participation of more than 85 thousand people, from 105 different countries.

The YouBEAT was present and below you can read the various impressions of the team during the different days of the event.

DAY 1
Perfect festival! They are back stronger than before! A very suggestive location which welcomes even the most skeptical visitor in a post-industrial context typical of the scene. The raw stages are worthy of a festival that promises to give unexpected emotions and that, with the arrival of the evening, turn into a psychedelic mix worthy of note thanks to lights and graphics, sometimes a little lacking, taking in consideration the quality of the artists. The latter give the best of them in every single piece despite the very high temperatures and a very demanding audience. It must be said that even the small artists could stand the comparison with the big ones avoiding downtime or waiting for the main artists and in this sense the line up was designed to not miss any top DJs.
As for the organizational aspect there is little or nothing to say: no waiting times for entrances, and a massive presence of food and beverage and gadgets stands, super available operators, constant cleaning of spaces, first aid always present and an app, “Woov”, just tailor-made for the festival, useful to follow the time timetable and get oriented through the festival. The only criticism to be made is about the issue of powerbanks, banned within the festival without providing charging points for mobile phones.
Finally, for our personal experience, we speak about a festival involving from the first to the last set, bringing the name of Italy in an international context, capable of attracting audiences from all over the globe.

Best sets: Peggy Gou, John Summit, Michael Bibi, Wade, Chelina Manuhutu

DAY 2
The second day of Kappa futurfestival, whose sold out had already been announced, did not disappoint expectations. The A and B entrances are packed, although with some setbacks, thanks to the excellent work done by the stewards, they have been able to better convey the thousands of people present, allowing easy access to the festival. Impossible not to mention the sets of Dave Whelan and Mike Di Scala, aka “Camelphat”, that preceded Diplo and Solomun, in a crescendo that raised the already scorching temperatures recorded on Saturday, but they didn’t stop the thousands of people at the Jäger Stage, who could later enjoy the back2back set of Jamie Jones & The Martinez Brothers, who anticipated the live performance of Carl Craig with Jon Dixon, ideal closing for this internship on Saturdays.

The Futur Stage in the meantime has seen names such as Tale of Us and Pan-Pot, who have made dance the thousands of fans who came across despite the dust that often rose, natural consequence of a period of drought like the one we are experiencing these days. Noteworthy is the intervention of the fire brigade that tried to remedy the problem by irrigating the land.

The Latz Stage has reserved moments of pure virtuosity, with the performance of Ricardo Villalobos b2b Craig Richards b2b Sonja Moonear, which, thanks also to a Bubble Show by some guys in front of the stage, has helped creating an excellent atmosphere, sometimes almost dreamlike.

Meanwhile, the Dora Stage saw the closing of Day 2 of Kappa futurfestival entrusted to The Blessed Madonna, energetic and really “well taken”, who was able to entertain his audience until the last second.

DAY 3
The last day of the festival, a Sunday to remember opened by the sets of the Italians Nicola Gavino, Riverside, Rude, Blackchild, Marbox and Young Marco.
High temperatures, the heat is felt in the fast flowing tail at the entrance but fortunately the water points are well arranged and always active and the shady areas are not lacking.
The iconic Jäger Stage starts immediately strong with the Greek Detlef, and then continues with Solardo who begin to fill the stage from 15:30.
At the same time we have the legendary Carl Cox from the Futur Stage, the largest stage of the 4 present that was already crowded for the British star.
At 17:00 the Bedouin duo from the Jäger Stage and the Italian Enrico Sangiuliano from the Futur Stage, both offering refined and contaminated sets.
The Latz Stage, at the height of Gate A, hosts the English Pawsa that with its eclectic tech-house and a fair dose of exclusive reinterpretations does not disappoint expectations and raises a lot (maybe too much) powder as for the next B2B branded Solid Grooves between Michael Bibi and Seth Troxler, really unique and with a remarkable energy.
A live performance out of mind, to disconnect and resume the breath compared to previous sets but especially subsequent, was that of Mathew Jonson and Xx Isis xx from the Jäger Stage, with a singing performance by the songwriter, model and dancer Isis Kuaygarond on the notes of the collaboration “Two Faces”.

One of the most anticipated moments of the day came: FISHER at the Jäger Stage.
Accompanied by his wife who pleasantly resumes the crowd going mad, he gave all of himself by unleashing the track with his hits from the recent “It’s A Killa” to the historic “Losing It” and “You Little Beauty”, complete with posters dedicated to him and pogos.
From 20:30 to midnight the Futur Stage becomes the home of our Joseph Capriati who first alone and then in B2B with Carl Cox closes the Kappa in beauty, while in the Futur Stage there is the veteran Danny Tenaglia and for the Dora Stage the German Helena Hauff.
The Latz Stage presents in closing the two sets of Dennis Cruz and Paco Osuna, keeping the Tech-House offer active and well appreciated until the end parallel to the main stages where Techno and House have closed the games.

Best sets: Fisher, Bedouin, Pawsa, Michael Bibi b2b Seth Troxler
