SAGA Festival all set for 2nd edition in 2022; reveals first names

After sharing the dates and a new location back in November, SAGA Festival has now revealed the first names for its upcoming 2nd edition this summer.

Still taking place in the beautiful city of Bucharest, the festival will be held at the National Arena in the capital from June 3 – 5, 2022.

As the second-largest electronic music festival in Romania (after UNTOLD Festival), the event will showcase an eclectic mix of electronic genres, whether you’re into EDM, underground, or whatever else.

SAGA is a collaboration between dance music industry titans ‘ALDA’ (responsible for Amsterdam Music Festival and A State of Trance) and Insomniac Events, who of course put on the globally-renowned EDC franchise — so it’s safe to say festival-goers can expect a second-to-none audio-visual production!

More than 45,000 people attended the festival each day in 2021.
