Electric Castle is the first of its kind - a festival that takes electronic dance music and live concert sounds into the domain of an ancient Transylvanian castle. Electric Castle represents an idea, concept and event created and planned by the artistic force behind Boiler Club – one of Romania's biggest clubbing scene breakthroughs.
Banffy Castle, the home of the festival, is situated near Cluj-Napoca and is the biggest castle in Transylvania. Formerly known as the Transylvanian Versailles, the Banffy castle of Bontida is one of the most beautiful historic buildings in the Carpathian basin. 24 acres, 6 buildings: castle, stables, chapel, flour mill - the castle is filled with hundreds of years of history and sets a surreal scene for an electronic festival experience.
After the legendary first edition held in 2013, Electric Castle Festival 2014 is BIGGER, BETTER and STRONGER with 4 festival days, 5 musical stages and over 100 top artists ensuring that this innovative music festival will shake up the European electronic festival scene.
