How can Electric Castle Festival target international market in terms of marketing and event experience?
The Electric Castle Festival is the biggest music festival in Romania so far(http://www.electriccastle.ro/en/dailylineup). It takes place in the North-Western part of the country, on the outskirts of Cluj city (in Bontida commune)where the ruins of the Banffy Castle are situated. Cluj is considered a metropole, the third biggest city in Romania with a population of 500,000(out of which 100,000 are students from all over the country)(http://www.clujbusiness.ro/why-cluj/demographics/).

At the same time, Electric Castle Festival is mostly attracting Romanian participants, the majority of them from or around the Cluj Napoca area. Being close to the Western border of the country (closer to Hungary or Serbia), the festival has a higher chance of attracting international participants as well as the capacity of accommodating a large number of participants.
