Set in the grounds of a 15th century castle, Romania’s Electric Castle is one of the most scenic festivals of the summer, with a superb line-up to match the magnificent surroundings. In the latest wave of line-up announcements, it was revealed that Scottish rockers Franz Ferdinand will be headlining this year.
From the progressive house of Deadmau5 to the easy-listening indie of Alt-J, to the dance legend of Paul Van Dyk, virtually every genre of music will be represented in “The Versailles of Romania”. Other acts to have been announced include DJ goddess Cassy, Italian superstars Cedric Gervais and Francesca Lombardo amd minimal extraordinaire Sonja Moonear, while Mike Skinner, Mistajam, Timo Maas and Peter Dundov are also confirmed to perform. Romania based and Electric Castle ‘house band’ Dub Pistols will be bringing their ska infused hip hop sounds with multi-instrumentalist Youngr and Nicole Conte also taking to the stage.
Taking place from the 12th-16th of July in Banffy Castle, previously announced acts include Architects, Beardyman & The Masters of Distraction, DJ Sneak, Duke Dumont, Eats Everything, House of Pain, Moderat, Nero, Reggae Roast, and Slaves to name but a few.
Alongside the stunning setting and incredible line-up, there will be a huge array of extra activities to entertain the crowds. Festival-goers can expect a lake, secret party areas within the forests, hidden hammocks, yoga classes and art installations. During the night 3D projections will light up the castle walls, with stages just metres away. With street theatre filling the gaps between stages and a whole host of off-the-wall entertainment including TEDx talks, Electric Castle is a five-day music, art and technological extravaganza not to be missed.
