by RaduP | 17.08
Rockstadt Extreme Fest is also a very important one for me, being the first festival I ever attended with my girlfriend, back in 2015.

ARTmania Festival 2019

ARTmania is pretty much a yearly tradition for me, being the festival which I've attended for the longest time, yearly since 2013. I may not have attended both days for all of the years I've been, but the July trek to Sibiu is something I did for a long time and I'll do for as long as I remain in Romania. This time was also special, it being the first ever even where I got media accreditation. So I'm gonna tell you a bit about this year's edition.
