Electric Castle announce lineup additions

Returning to the atmospheric Banffy Castle after the success of its 2019 installment, Electric Castle have announced details of their 8th edition. Proving popular worldwide, over 50,000 festival goers (per day) will be welcomed back to the breathtaking setting of Banffy Castle for a jam packed five days of music, food, yoga, cinema and so much more.

With a wide variety of artists set to perform (including Twenty One Pilots, Foals, Floating Points, Fisher, Amon Tobin, Tycho, The Neighbourhood Rezz , Zhu, Purple Disco Machine, High Contrast, Camo & Krooked, MC Dynamite & Meute) Electric Castle once again deliver a beautifully curated and eclectic line-up that the festival’s name has become synonymous with.

Also boasting some truly mesmerizing art installations at the on-site New Media Castle, EC will continue to push the boundaries with incredible works from Robert Henke, James Clar and Clare Hentschker on display. These include hypnotic shapes, complex feedback loops, modulated effects and virtual archives of broken polygons that feel almost real but not quite.

Electric Castle takes place on the outskirts of Romania’s cultural city of Cluj. The festival is set amongst the beautiful grounds of the dramatic Banffy Castle, often being described as Romania’s answer to Versailles.

A hedonistic and immersive experience, Electric Castle is a truly unique festival with a multitude of musical genres to match. By mixing arts and technology with an eclectic musical line-up, unique architectural concept and the breathtaking scenery of the amazing medieval castle, Electric Castle redefines the way people interact with a music festival, breaking the boundaries between electronic music and reggae, mainstream and subculture.

Introducing Electric Castle Festival

ELECTRIC CASTLE represents an idea, concept and event created and planned by BOILER EVENTS, the artistic force behind Boiler Club – Cluj-Napoca’s clubbing scene breakthrough. Boiler is an unconventional place in an unconventional setting, a storage tank for creative music and artists. Placed in the former water injection room in the actual basement of The Paintbrush Factory/Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Boiler is well integrated in a cultural and nonconformist landscape.

Alongside BOOHA.RO, BOOHA COLLEGE, BOOHA BAR, AMERICAN EXPERIENCE we will make sure that this innovative music festival will shake up the way people interact with music.
