ARTMANIA. Dedicated to supporting and promoting all forms of artistic expression, ArtMania cultural platform focuses on the promotion of the art of sounds and the musical projects born around the contemporary genres. One of Romania’s most established events, ArtMania is an open air rock Festival that takes place in Sibiu, every summer since 2006 and positioned itself along the years as one of the most important events promoting mainly rock and metal acts. The ArtMania cultural platform supports music and arts, with focus on the music directly linked to or derived from the rock culture. ArtMania has become a well-known brand, thanks to the special concept of the festival and its location in one of the most beautiful medieval citadels in Eastern Europe, Sibiu. In 2017, the ArtMania Festival will take place this year between the 28th and 29th of July at its traditional venue, Sibiu’s Big Square – the Old Center of one of the most charming medieval cities of Transylvania, listed by TripAdvisor as one of the 10 cities in Europe to visit in 2017. Music and festival lovers, bands and international promoters, festivals and event industry experts – are all welcome this year to the ArtMania. The Festival will offer music and art amateurs a varied cultural program that includes concerts, exhibitions, workshops and other events linked to rock music and culture. Among the international artists that performed here in previous years includes Nightwish, Serj Tankian, Die Toten Hosen, Whitin Temptation, HIM, Tarja Turunen, The Gathering, The Sisters OfMercy, Lacuna Coil, Republica, Helloween, Poets of the Fall, Deine Lakaien etc. The ArtMania Festival, an example of green responsibility and sustainable policies, takes place this year under the motto “Take a Stand” -a statement defending European values, part of an international campaign to encourage civic engagement and social cohesion. “Take a Stand”is an initiative of Yourope, an association of 90 of the top festivals in Europe, with which ArtMania is affiliated.
