Italian techno festival Kappa Futur shares statement, hopes to go ahead in July

The festival is scheduled for July

Kappa Futur has confirmed it plans to go ahead as scheduled with the July festival.

Following the cancellation of UK and European festivals like Glastonbury, Tomorrowland Winter, Rampage, and Snowbombing amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Kappa Futur released the statement assuring festival go-ers it would still take place.

"During this particularly difficult time we just want to re-assure all our Kappa Futur Family that we are currently doing everything we can to make sure Kappa FuturFestival 2020 goes ahead as planned on 4-5 July," the statement reads. "Currently the measures in force here in Italy are due to end on April 3rd. Our Festival is scheduled 3 months after this date, so at the moment the Festival is not affected and we hope it will stay this way. 

Our main concern is to guarantee the health, safety and security of our guests, artists, staff and community so we will of course continue to monitor the situation and liaise with the authorities."
 
Kappa Futur is scheduled to take place in Parco Dora in the city of Torino, northern Italy, and welcome over 40,000 people on the 4th & 5th July this year. Among the first names to be announced were Hot Creations boss Jamie Jones, who'll play b2b with Bronx duo The Martinez Brothers, and Solid Grooves label founders, PAWSA and Michael Bibi.
