Electric Castle and Untold, two of the largest music festivals in the country, have announced their 2021 dates. Both festivals, which take place in Cluj county, in the western part of the country, had to cancel their editions this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to Romania-Insider.com.
Electric Castle, which is held on the Banffy domain in Bonțida, was rescheduled for July 14-July 18. The festival also announced its headliners, namely alternative rock group twenty øne piløts, Gorillaz, and alt-metal group Deftones.
Tickets for next year’s edition of Electric Castle are on sale at promotional prices until November 30th. All available offers are listed on the festival’s website.
Untold said it would hold its 2021 edition between August 5 and August 8 but did not announce any names in its lineup yet. The organizers of the festival, held in Cluj-Napoca, said next year’s edition “would exceed all expectations and would be organized in the safest conditions.” The good news regarding the roll-out of a Covid-19 vaccine at the beginning of next year and the increased focus on developing rapid tests allowing for mass testing are among the organizer’s reasons for confidence regarding next year’s event, they said.
The organizers of Untold also mentioned the state aid scheme granted by the Government and said they met, alongside other event organizers, in a task group meant to identify the required measures to restart the events in 2021 safely.
