Banffy Castle is a stunning piece of architecture that was partially destroyed during WWII. With the arrival of the festival, new life has been breathed into the structure as it provides a breathtaking backdrop and is gradually restored to its former glory thanks to the profits from the festival.

If you are flying to Electric Castle, the closest international airport is Cluj-Napoca. It is then just 10 minutes by train or taxi into the city centre.
It is likely that the festival will be operating a shuttle bus service between the city centre and the festival site. Last year these ran from the Cluj Arena, however, details for 2017's edition are still to be announced.
Although not announced officially yet, last year the venue gate opened at 10:00am on July 14, and camping opened at 8:00pm on July 13th.
Electric Castle is an all ages festival where children aged 12 and under are allowed to attend for free.
