Electric Castle 2014

Romania's award winning electronic pride and joy

The Basics

Nominated for European Festival Award praise such as "Best New Festival" and "Best Medium Sized" festival,  Electric Castle is one to watch after its 2013 debut took over the surroundings of Bánffy Castle with its electronic music vibes.

Curated by Boiler Events who run local powerhouse Boiler Club, Electric Castle mixes the spirit of the Cluj-Napoca clubbing scene, with the outdoor freedom of its location, with this years expansion promising a festival that is "Bigger, Better and Stronger".

Growing from three days to four, 100 national and international electronic acts are set to appear over 5 stages,  with Thievery Corporation, Bonobo and DJ Fresh amongst the pick.

Known as the first festival in Romania to bring electronic sound to Bánffy castle, Electric Castle is great value for money, where you can see high quality acts for a fraction of the price.

Donating funds from the festival to restoration of the historic castle site, come to an event where good vibes and great music combine to do prosperous things...

The Venue

Electric Castle 2014

DJ161 Bontida

Originally built in the 15th century, the Baroque building has always been owned by the Bánffy family, however after partial destruction and desolation following an attack by German troops during World War II, the festival profits are funding the restoration of this amazing monument. 

The organisers strike a great balance between using every detail of the site from the woodland to even nestling the main stage against the castle, whilst causing no interference to the site itself.
