From specially curated & guided gallery visits, exclusive tours of some of Italy's most elite private art collections, to on-site VIP festival access, Kappa Futur Festival's 'Art & Techno' package really is the ultimate luxury festival experience.
Based in Torino, award-winning festival Kappa Futur Festival is best known for providing an elevated, unforgettable festival experience at the intersection of art and electronic music. This year, Notion was lucky enough to experience its ‘Art & Techno’ package – which took the festival’s affiliation with luxury to the next level.
Making the most of Torino’s rich art history and booming contemporary creative scene, the ‘Art & Techno’ package set the eclectic cultural offerings at the festival against a backdrop of the city’s heritage – music hand in hand with art, innovation hand in hand with history.
The experience was fully 360, with perks both on-site and around the city. Starting with a lavish welcome dinner and opening party, the package included VIP access to stages, access to a special concierge service, and a uniquely thought through itinerary of the best art experiences the country has to offer, covering a multitude of art periods, some of which aren’t even open to the general public!
There was a range of tours and exhibitions included, from the Ti ho visto (I See You) exhibition by Massimo Vitali at the Mazzoleni Gallery, to the Castello di Rivoli Contemporary Art Museum and OGR Gallery. A firm favourite of the unforgettable long weekend was even being able to partake in exclusively ‘Art & Techo’-organised private visit to the studio of renowned Torino artist Fabio Viale. He’s made impressive marble sculptures of some of our music favourites including Fedez & Rihanna!
The once-in-a-lifetime experience, which was led by a passionate local guide called Monica, allowed for us to closely follow the story of each exhibition & private view, and educate ourselves beyond visiting a gallery ‘solo’, when in town for a music festival, like we’d usually do. With accommodation provided at NH Collection Carlina Hotel, transportation to/from the festival, a dedicated entrance, VIP cloakrooms and toilets, a premium cocktail bar and premium food vendors – with food included – everything was set up to create the best possible environment to enjoy the art and music.
Take a look at some of the art ‘Art & Techno’ experience we explored below, and find more info here. It is a fully immersive & cultural experience, way beyond that offered at any other music festival we’ve attended this year!
