With breathtaking sights and amazing surroundings, the century old Bánffy Castle is the home of Electric Castle. As a premiere for the festival, the castle opened its doors to the public during the 5th edition of Electric Castle, hosting an array of exhibitions and interactive art installations.
Every year we try to bring our contribution to the restauration of one of Romania’s forgotten landmarks.
Alongside local authorities we continued our long term vision of investing in the Castle and village infrastructure, creating new jobs opportunities for the community and bolstering local economy. After the successful restoration of the castle’s roof thanks to generous donations, now we are focusing on reinforcing and consolidating the frame structure.
