After two years of fine tuning every detail and preparing to give fans the music event of a lifetime, there’s only one week remaining until the debut edition of SAGA Festival opens its gates to the public. Fans will witness an audio-visual spectacular like no other with the biggest artists in the world of electronic music and beyond, during the 3-day festival experience in Romania’s capital of Bucharest between 10 and 12 September 2021.
Exploring all options and taking every aspect into careful consideration in today’s dynamic festival environment, SAGA Festival had factored in the large amount of tickets currently sold which has led to the decision to change the festival’s venue for this year’s edition from Izvor Park to Romaero, located near Baneasa International Airport. Making the decision alongside Bucharest City Hall, moving venues was largely influenced by keeping the best interest of the attendees in mind, thus being able to provide not only the best festival experience but the safest. A bigger venue will provide more room for fans to dance the night away in a safe spacious environment which will no doubt bring peace of mind for ticket holders. With international visitors jetting off to Romaero, Bucharest from many corners of the world, SAGA Festival is ready to take off.
“We are thrilled about the new site and still in awe of its roughness, history and potential of creating a breathtaking experience, which combines the best electronic music and the unique feeling of partying on an airport, with the planes as a background.” Said the organizers.
With Romaero being the brand-new home for SAGA Festival to begin its unique new journey on September 10-12, just one week left to wait until the gates open for partygoers to make their own special memories in SAGA’s home for this year’s edition. Delivering an entirely new concept to Romania, Bucharest will play host to mind blowing special effects, forward thinking designs and a lineup spanning the very best in electronic music including Tiësto, Carl Cox, Alan Walker, Masked Wolf, Sickick, Nicky Romero, Oliver Heldens, Robin Schulz and many more. Alongside a renowned mainstage lineup, underground and local talent will also be on hand to deliver explosive entertainment for dance music fans.
In addition to the previously mentioned international artists, some of the most appreciated and loved Romanian artists complete the SAGA Festival line-up. Antonia, INNA, Deliric, Grasu XXL, Gojira & Planet H, Guess Who, Prny & Lu-K Beats, Spike, Bad and Boujee, Chronic DJs (Grigo & ABS), DJ Chill Will, DJ DOX, DJ Grewu, DJ Sauce (Satra Benz DJ), DJ Sfera, Johnny Damix and Moza Kaliza will take the stage at SAGA 2021.
