one of the former partners of the festival has started a new one 2 weeks earlier, looks very similar to what electric castle has been in the first 2 or 3 years, a cheap festival with no headliners.

they will have to deliver a good line up, as the conditions are HORRENDOUS. i've heard stories with people taking up to 3 hours to come from Cluj to Bontida (i think it's about 40 km) . the road has no asphalt on a good portion and the whole infrastructure outside the festival sucks. camping will have to be your option if you go there.  i've only heard good things about the festival setup though.

Yeah, I've read about that too. But the ones who should create the infrastructure outside are the authorities mainly because the roads belong to the Romanian state.

As far as I know there was big traffic only on the Florence + the Machine day. Despite the fact that the organizers expected this & they announced on all social media + mobile notifications that people should go as early as they can, people still decided to go to Florence's concert only 2-3 hours before the gig.

So I think it also was people's mistake because they didn't go to the festival early enough... everyone could be there in time if they would have gone earlier from the city.

your points are valid, but they still grew the festival too much compared to the road infrastructure in my opinion. tbh, unless they pull a stellar line up (they had good line ups some years, but nothing really spectacular) i won't attend and go to festivals abroad instead.
