It’s that time of the year when we call those who want to be part of the Electric Castle magic to join the ECO Crew. Choose a promoter or volunteer role to put your charm and energy into creating the most ECO music festival in Romania!

This edition, we are kicking-off the EC #ZeroWaste campaign, which we embrace as a long-term goal to reduce, reuse and recycle all the waste generated at the festival. We also continue our awareness program (#EcoCitizen) on reducing the carbon footprint by acting on energy and water consumption, transportation alternatives and social engagement.Continue Reading..

Cyclists Around the World Called to Be ECO-Ambassadors for Electric Castle

If you and your friends are cycling enthusiasts and got the rhythm in your veins, hop on your bike and have a blast at Electric Castle Festival. It’s on us! Free full pass, camping & other goodies await you at the gate of the Banffy Castle (Bonțida, Cluj).

Radu, a 2016’s ECO Ambassador, arrived at the Electric Castle after travelling 500 km by bicycle.

What do you have to do to become an ECO-Ambassador?

  • Choose an eco cause to promote before, during and after the festival. Any cause from deforestation to ecological education. Are you already working for a cause and you’re motivated to support it in the long run? Even better, your chances of being selected increase.
  • Pedal to the Banffy Castle from a distance greater than 250km.
  • Be visible online, a good communicator and active on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter). The stronger your ability to reach people, the greater the chance of being selected.
  • Own a smartphone/tablet with mobile data. It is very important to have a device with Internet connection to share media content (photos, videos, live streaming) during your journey.
  • Have a public Strava account / other biking app. It is useful for proving your experience in pedalling on long distances. You will have to use this account to track your journey by bicycle towards Electric Castle.
  • Have the determination to convince as many festival participants as possible to join the ECO program at Electric Castle.
  • Own suitable cycling equipments and bicycle for this kind of journey.
  • Be experienced and physically capable to complete this kind of journey in safe conditions.
  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Plan your journey ahead. We need you to be in Cluj-Napoca in the morning on the 12th of July (place and time TBA).

We greatly promote team working, but we also accept lone wolfs. Continue Reading..

(P) Energia vine de unde te aștepți mai puțin

Electric Castle 2015 a fost, fără echivoc, una dintre cele mai stresante și epuizante perioade pentru noi. Am ajuns cu două săptămâni înainte de event și am plecat la cinci zile după terminarea lui, deci peste trei săptămâni de muncă continuă, de dimineața până seara, cu cireașa de pe tort reprezentată de cele patru zile de festival în care nu am dormit mai mult de patru ore pe noapte. Recordul de nedormit a fost stabilit în ultima zi, astfel că am fost treze de duminică de la 09.00 până doua zi, luni, la ora 14.00. Timp în care am muncit, ne-am permis să ne și distrăm puțin, iar apoi am strâns cu lacrimi în ochi tot cortul ECO. Lacrimi de bucurie că ne ducem, în sfârșit, să ne odihnim :), dar și de tristețe că ce a fost frumos s-a terminat.

Proiectul ECO de la această ediție a avut un mare susținătorContinue Reading..
