Blinded by the lights between the mountains: Electric Castle 2022

Every year the green hills of Transylvania, at the foot of the Romanian Bánffy Castle, get transformed into a colourful festival location full of music, art, love and lights. Welcome to Electric Castle!

With a program that goes on 24 hours per day and side activities like games, yoga, circus, movies and creative workshops, you’ll surely experience a shortage of time, eyes and ears here. During the day, the castle and many hang-outs ensure a dreamy atmosphere. At night the festival takes it up a notch with unique lighting installations that make you imagine yourself inside the brain of Thomas Edison. Electric Castle is also known for its culinary food and drinks – all for extremely low prices! And then we didn’t even mention the eclectic line-up yet with a mix of artists you rarely see anywhere else. An experience you don’t want to miss!

The fastest way to travel to Electric Castle is by taking a plane to Cluj-Napoca and then a transfer to the festival site. In cooperation with TIX we help you find the cheapest flights.

Festivals are perfect to visit during a European road trip. Decide for yourself how much space you have, who you take with you, where you stop and how far you go.


Keep in mind that you will pass several toll roads on the way. At most of these check points you can pay by credit card, but it’s always wise to bring cash with you.

On the road

In several European countries such as Austria, Slovenia and Slovakia it is obligated to have a vignette on your car. A vignette is a sticker that indicates road tolls have been paid. The sticker has to be visible on the front window of the car when you pass the border in question. You can buy vignettes at every border. It’s mostly possible to pay by credit or debit card, but we always advise you to have enough cash with you as well. There are different vignettes for cars and motorcycles and they come with different validities, such as 10 days, 2 months or 1 year.

The official currency in Romania is the Romanian Leu (RON). The general exchange rate is 4.5129 RON / 1 EUR and 5.27190 RON / 1 GBP.


Police: 112
Fire department: 112
Ambulance: 112

It depends on where you come from, but if you’re from the EU, an identity card is sufficient.

In Romania they use European plugs of type C, E and F (two-pole, round-pin power plugs).

Not everywhere in Romania it is safe to drink tap water, so we advise you to only drink bottled water.
