Bontida: Festivalgoers bet on event’s weather for charity

A festival in Romania has launched a charity initiative that will raise funds through bets based on the event’s weather, according to Fundraising.co.uk.

Now in its fifth year, Electric Castle will be held at Transylvania’s Banffy Castle near Cluj-Napoca between 12th and 16th July, with acts this year including Franz Ferdinand, Deadmau5, Zedd, Alt-J, Paul Van Dyk, and Atari Teenage Riot.

The festival location has become synonymous with bad weather, with torrential rain chasing the event despite it moving around the summer calendar precisely to avoid it.

This year, and to play a joke on their bad run of luck with the weather, the festival has launched “The Weather Policy”, which will see proceeds donated from every ticket sale whether Rain or Shine” graces the event.
