What is a piece or organising or scheduling app you simply cannot live without in the festival organisation process?
My super staff, my white towel and my mobile.
Aside from quality, what goes into the programming of Kappa Futur? How do you approach differentiating yourself from other European festivals?
I’d like to answer this question with 3 words: Italy, Turin and Venue. Let me explain, Italy as in Italian hospitality, famous all over the world, we treat our public well and we assure them only the best local foods and drinks; Turin, because as I said it is an exceptional city, managed by a clever administration and entrepreneurially equipped; last but not least is the venue, our strongest asset, a post industrial park in the center of the city, a real unique location.
Are there any artists you are particularly keen on catching at the festival?
I’d definitely like to see the Kings of House (Louie Vega, David Morales and Tony Humphries), leading their own stage during Day 1. As for Day 2 I’m really looking forward to seeing Die Antwoord perform live.
If a young, wide eyed, aspiring festival organiser came to you and asked for a single piece of advice regarding how to organise a proper festival experience, what would you tell them?
Vision and a lot of patience and especially never take anything for granted, that’s very very important.
Where do you see the future of Kappa Futur?
I see a blooming future for the Festival. I see the brand exported internationally, I see it recognized globally. I see us getting better where we’re still weak and I know we’re going to not only keep up with what will come, but also lead it, ’cause we’re already the Futur.
