With 2018’s hotly anticipated Kappa Futur just a few weeks away, the brand new stage for the July 7th and 8th event can now be revealed. It is sure to become another iconic new addition to the festival, whose main stage is the already stuff of legend throughout the techno world.
Known as the Futur Stage, the new site was recently road tested by the one and only Derrick May, who live-streamed a very special one-hour set from this previously unused part of the Parco Dora.

The Futur Stage is a 7500 square metre area of rusted industrial columns, exposed stonework and manicured lawns that will have all amenities and services you can expect from KFF, but will increase capacity by an extra 5.000 people per day. As well as this, a brand new food court with a wide range of food and drink choices, 20-metre bar and VIP lounge will also be set up to make this an even more complete and immersive experience.
There will be four stages on both days of Kappa Futur, and they are Dora, Futur, Burn and Jäger and will cover many different facets of house and techno from the genre’s key players. On Saturday on Jäger, you can expect the likes of a special DJ Set from Apparat, as well as Eric Prydz, New York pair The Martinez Brothers, German titan Timo Maas, then on Burn Stage Hi Ibiza resident Andrea Oliva, bass house lover Eats Everything, Life And Death boss DJ Tennis, plus Patrick Topping, on Futur Stage Drumcode’s Adam Beyer, breakthrough sensation Amelie Lens, Marco Faraone, and on Dora Stage the legendary Francois K and Danny Krivit from Body and Soul, and a live performance from Blaze’s Josh Milan.
Sunday, meanwhile, will be the day to catch a unique live show from Chicago house innovator Mr Fingers aka Larry Heard, plus Motor City Drum Ensemble and Peggy Gou on Dora Stage, Detroit pioneers Derrick May and Robert Hood and stars like Berlin’s loop master Rødhåd on Futur Stage, house party starts like Jackmaster, Hot Since 82 and Adriatique on Burn Stage and more superstar names like Luciano, Marco Carola, Seth Troxler, Stacey Pullen, Fatboy Slim, Jamie Jones, a live show from KiNK and many more on the Jäger Stage.
This new and expanded site for Kappa Futur is another evolution in the ongoing story of the premier techno gathering in all of Europe, and means that the 2018 edition will be the most memorable yet.
