Cappadocia has always been a top attraction for travellers to Turkey with its otherworldly landscape, mysterious aura and unique local culture. Since 2015, it has also been the backdrop of Turkey’s newest, hippest and coolest festival, Cappadox. Thousands of visitors, both from within and outside of Turkey, will once again flock to this magical land in June for a few days of true festival spirit.
History of the festival
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cappadocia is one of the most visited destinations in Turkey. For the past three years, its appeal has intensified during Cappadox, which merges the mystical land with experiences to be remembered. Best defined as a festival of freedom, rejuvenation and new experiences, Cappadox made its debut in 2015, created by Pozitif, Turkey’s leading Entertainment Company.
Its eco-friendly nature is clearly reflected in its solar-powered stage while its variety of events and performances is a testament to its interdisciplinary character. In the past three years, the festival has hosted the likes of Dhafer Youssef, Sun Ra Arkestra, Acid Pauli, Mercan Dede, Husnu Senlendirici, Karsu, Mum and Rhye.
