Transylvania. The only 24-hour festival party experience. An eclectic and powerhouse lineup bringing together cutting-edge innovators, game changing legends, thrilling new talent and some of the biggest names on the planet. Spread across the grounds of a castle in Romania. It can only be Electric Castle – Europe’s next festival phenomenon.

Celebrating its 10th Birthday between July 17th-21st 2024, Electric Castle is a festival revolution that embraces every free-flowing notion of what a festival should be and dials it up to a new modern level. Spread across 10 stages at over 40 hectares through the grounds of a castle in the heart of Transylvania – the mythical meets the magical for a show where a surprise is waiting around every corner. Electric Castle is waiting to be discovered with one guarantee: once you enter, you’ll never want to leave.

Heading to Romania to mark Electric Castle’s grandest edition to date is an eclectic mix of some of the biggest, most exciting and must-see names across the modern musical spectrum. One of the globe’s most important bands, Massive Attack sit as one of the most influential acts in modern culture. Across a spellbinding career, their genre-bending take on alternative music has only been matched by their vital activism and outspoke social commentaries that continue to shape and shift entire generations. Returning to the stage in 2024, their live show has always pushed the boundary of what a music performance can be. Surrounded in one of the world’s most unique festival settings, Massive Attack at Electric Castle is sure to be an essential show of the summer.

Blazing their own trail is Sheffield’s own Bring Me The Horizon. Since emerging in the early 21st century, frontman Oli Sykes has led their ferocious sound to the very top and in turn becoming one of this generation’s most needed bands. Taking their metal roots, Bring Me The Horizon have always looked to break new ground – jumping across rock, pop, electro, rave and hyperpop for one of the most diverse catalogues in modern music. With a vibrant live pedigree, Bring Me The Horizon have soundtracked an entire era. Watch them in full force in the heart of Transylvania.

Potent and untameable, nobody embodies the spirit of rock and roll quite like Queens Of The Stone Age. With a career stretching from the mid-90s, QOTSA have brought the biggest and boldest riffs to the fore with a ferocious reputation as one of the best live bands on the planet. Boasting anthems like ‘No One Knows’, ‘Go With The Flow’, ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’, ‘Make It Wit Chu’, ‘My God Is The Sun’ and storming new album ‘In Times New Roman…’ amongst a rich slew of tracks at their disposal – every pore of Josh Homme’s band of rock heavyweights will leave their mark at Electric Castle in 2024.

Massive Attack, Bring Me The Horizon and Queens Of The Stone Age lead a diverse first wave of names offering a festival lineup that ensures unbelievable memories 24 hours a day. Fresh from a year taking over the UK Singles Chart, Chase & Status will bring their electric live show to Electric Castle – a perfect home for an unstoppable electro-rave party stretching into the Transylvnian night sky. One of the most influential figures in cult dance music DJ Shadow heads to Romania in 2024, along with the weaving grooves of Khruangbin and the visceral punk spit of Sleaford Mods. Whether it’s the energetic and impromptu producer-sensation Marc Rebillet, hypnotic UK favourite Jayda G, the whip-quick house beats of Eats Everything or the acclaimed sounds of Genesis Owusu and Priya Ragu – Electric Castle serves up a lineup that compliments the world they invite everyone into.


Just an opening glimpse into what awaits in 2024, Electric Castle proves itself truly unique. A festival that takes no breaks or breathers, for 5 days the stunning setting of Banffy Castle becomes a utopia of unbridled release and surefire celebration. Whether it’s some of the biggest names in modern music, pop-up parties, forward-thinking art installations or jaw-dropping light spectacles spinning into the night and beyond – Electric Castle takes the core principles that first created festivals and embraces them towards the future. Unlike any other show on the planet, Electric Castle dares to go further – proving itself essential and a best kept secret that’s ready to become the next festival phenomenon.
