Bánffy Castle electrifies with eclecticism

Electric Castle is an electronic, indie, pop, and rock music festival set amongst the grounds of the historic Bánffy Castle, in Romania. 

Priding themselves on their eclectic lineups year on year, and considering the mystical Bánffy Castle is situated in Transylvania, they seldom host acts with spooky band names. With the exception of The Horrors in 2018.

Conceptually innovative stages, lighting, technology, and arts help to break the boundaries between electronic music, reggae, pop, and rock artists which ignite the spectacular and unique surroundings for four days.

Florence + the Machine, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and Bring Me The Horizon headline this year, so you can expect a remarkable roster of artists from across the musical spectrum.

Though partially destroyed during WWII, Bánffy Castle has elements that have survived since the 17th century. Each edition of Electric Castle helps to breath new life into the castle, as profits from the festival go towards restoration projects.
