How You Can See Florence + The Machine At An Actual Transylvanian Castle

Florence + The Machine are playing at an actual Transylvanian castle this July. Yes, you read that sentence right. The English indie rock band is part of this year's Electric Castle Festival lineup. For the past five years, the Bánffy Castle near Cluj-Napoca in Romania has been the site of an eclectic festival that incorporates music, technology, and alternative arts. This year's lineup is probably the only place you'll see Florence and Limp Bizkit share the two top slots. Thirty Seconds to Mars, CHVRCHES, Nils Frahm, Metric, Tokimonsta, Bring Me the Horizon, Zeds Dead, and many other artists will make the trek to Transylvania this summer.
Electric Castle goes down July 17-21 at Bonțida Bánffy Castle. Get more details and ticket info here, and check out the lineup poster below.
Before visiting Bánffy Castle, Florence will be touring North America this spring. Check out the band's full list of tour dates below.
