The relaxation zone PMA was the most populated during the day and the liveliness was guaranteed by Lights Out, together with Nuages Quartet, Disco Sigaretta and Whole Circle (Cercul Intreg). Youth@Cluj-Napoca 2015 (European Youth Capital) organised a boardgames competition, the campaign “Cu cartile pe fata” came with a library, and the hammocks the Big Hammock Gathering were almost always full.

“We’re glad that we were joined by new, enthusiastic people, who helped us bring great music to the thousands of spectators in the amazing park. We thank our partners, especially the Cluj-Napoca City Hall, without whom this festival would not have been possible, and we thank the journalists of the constant advertising. Also, we would like to thank all the participants of the festivals for the encouragement and for helping us organise a great festival in a top location of Cluj-Napoca and in an extremely civilised manner.”, declared Alin Vaida, the festival manager.
