Mihai Paun

Festival Director – Electric Castle


Mihai Păun is a man with a head for figures and with a passion for good music. It was this combination of characteristics, along with an entrepreneurial streak, that compelled Mihai to launch Electric Castle Festival, which takes place every July at the spectacular Banffy Castle in Transylvania.

In the five years since its inception, Electric Castle has become one of the most beloved festivals in Romania, with music lovers travelling from four continents to stay in the grounds of a fifteenth century castle for five days and nights, whilst surrounded by history, the arts, and a killer line-up of internationally acclaimed artists.
