Florence + The Machine, 30 Seconds to Mars and Bring Me the Horizon are the posters of the 2019 edition of the Electric Castle Festival, which will take place July 17-21 at Bonţida, according to organizers.
Florence + The Machine is one of the most creative indie bands of the last decade, built around the fascinating personality of the soloist, composer and founder Florence Welch. Since 2009, when the first album has been released, the band has gathered for the past decades world-class music, nominations and awards like BRIT, Grammy, Mercury, BBC and Billboard.

Rewarded with Oscar, star rock, a fashion icon, Jared Leto confirmed his presence at Electric Castle alongside his brother, Shannon Leto – in other words, 30 Seconds to Mars. The band's latest album, "America," is promoted through a world tour that also reaches in Romania, offering the public the most ambitious production ever signed by the band. And that's no small thing for these artists who, in addition to an overwhelming number of prizes, even have a Guinness record. Not everyone has Jared Leto's ability to juggle between major Hollywood productions and arenas full of tens of thousands of fans, but behind megastar reputation, he is a musician who has managed to sell over 15 million albums in the two decades since the band's launch. "Walk on Water", "Rescue Me", "Kings and Queen" are the latest 30 Seconds to Mars hits, marking a new style with strong electro influences in the band's music.
Bring Me The Horizon, the revelation of the fourth edition of Electric Castle, returns to the festival stage in 2019. The band will officially launch a new album early next year with which they will immediately embark on a promotion tour in Europe and Australia. Only two songs on the future "Amo" have been presented so far. Behind the road as a deathcore, BMTH has experienced many genres along the six recorded albums, which has helped her greatly to conquer the audience around the world and turned it into a poster head for the most major festivals in Europe.

Veterans of indie rock style, Metric members arrive in Romania at a mature moment of their career started 20 years ago in Toronto. The charisma of soloist Emily Haines lies at the heart of their confirmed success over time with numerous awards. Whether they are on a tour with bands such as Smashing Pumpinks or on their own, Metric members have the same pleasure to hypnotise even viewers who first discover it, writes Mediafax.

It has been eight years since "If U Wanna" signed The Vaccines was one of the summer hits, during which the band went through several formulas and more albums, among which most recently "Combat Sports" was launched this year.
