We compile a curation of 10Trax taken from the Electric Castle lineup to get you in the groove for your self-isolated nights to come...
Ever dreamed of hiding away in a remote castle tucked away in Romania to listen to some of the best and varying music in the industry? Then look for no further.
Returning once again to the atmospheric and momentous Banffy Castle after the massive success of its 2019 festival, Electric Castle have announced details of their 8th and highly-anticipated edition of the festival.
Over 50,000 festival-goers flock to Romania to free their inhibitions at a jam-packed five days of music, food, yoga, cinema and so much more. It’s really an experience that you have to go through yourself to understand the euphoric feelings that we are talking about.
With an eclectic array of artists set to perform (including Twenty One Pilots, Foals, Floating Points, Amon Tobin, Tycho, The Neighbourhood, Fisher, Rezz, Zhu, Purple Disco Machine, High Contrast, Camo & Krooked, MC Dynamite & Meute) Electric Castle will once again be the backdrop to some of the greatest festival memories created over the 15th – 19th of July this year.
To get you in the spirit, and to soundtrack your self-isolated weekend, we have curated a playlist of 10Trax from some of the artists set to perform so you can have your own pre-festival party in your kitchen.
