The Festival

Transylvaliens is a transformational festival focused on celebrating diversity through music, arts and culture. The psytrance community meets yearly and spends four wonderfully warm summer days in the heart of Transylvania’s astonishing nature scenery. We welcome you to the global Alien family to meet new and exciting people, dance together under the summer sky, relax in the sun, heal and meditate in the moonlight or just disconnecting from your everyday life.

Previous editions


Transylvaliens Festival hosts two stages over the entire duration of the event:

The Hive

The Hive stage is the place where collective consciousness evolves through the synergy of music, dance, lights and visuals.

The Lair

The Lair is the place to rest and retreat, a place where you can load up on energy and reconnect with nature and your inner self.

For 2016 we have worked a lot to bring you an amazing line-up, featuring more than 40 live acts and DJs, with music for every moment of the day and night. The line-up has been carefully selected to create a musical story, a journey that starts on the 26th of July and ends on the 31st.


Experience the magic of Transylvaliens in a beautiful mix of grassy hills and cool forest located near the Ludos village - 35km from Sibiu, Romania. The village Ludos is a traditional Romanian settlement with people are living a traditional way of life, in harmony with nature. For those of you that want to explore more of Romania, there are many attractions nearby - the old city of Sibiu, the natural salt lakes at Ocna Sibiului and beautiful mideaval and ancient sites in Hunedoara and Alba-Iulia, just to mention a few.

Workshops & art

It is said that performance art consists of four elements: time, space, body, and audience-performer relationship. When you explore your body, voice and mind there are no limits and rules. You could be a fire bender, a marvelous magician, a theater enthusiast, a fantastic dancer, a body painter or just have a unique talent or gift that you would like to share with the alien family. We would love to hear your story and admire your project!


Running a festival is a costly endeavor, so we embrace sponsors and partners that can help us keep this event affordable for all the aliens in the world. We are very committed to our values and views so we expect that our partners share them. We are looking for ethical, community responsible, environmentally friendly, fair trade organizations and people whose ultimate purpose is to have a positive impact. If you believe that your visions and values coincide with ours we would love to hear from you.
