ARTmania Festival 2012 - Tickets
Shake the grounds of Transylvania at ARTmania Festival Sibiu 2012
In 2012, the ARTmania Festival in Sibiu will take place between August 6-12 and will offer art lovers a various cultural program including concerts, exhibitions, workshops and other special events dedicated to the fine arts. All these will take place in the medieval fortress of Sibiu and Sibiu Arena (Camping and Entertainment). The concerts in the Large Square will take place on Friday and Saturday, the 10th and 11th of August.
Our first headliner announced for the seventh edition is confirmed: Die Toten Hosen is coming to Sibiu in August with an impressive record over 30 years of experience: 14 studio albums, over 1,000 concerts and more than 15 million albums sold. The seventh edition of the ARTmania Festival will end its first day of concerts in the Large Square on the rhythms of Germany’s most popular band, in premiere on Romanian ground. Die Toten Hosen will be playing on Friday, around 10 p.m., in the most beautiful public square in Romania. “Pushed Again”, “Hier Kommt Alex”, “Zehn Kleine Jägermeister” and many other well known songs will be listened to live in Sibiu, but also they will present a new material that will be launched in April 2012.
Epica returns to Transylvania at the ARTmania Festival with a brand new album, "Requiem for the Indifferent". Epica will play for the first time on the stage in the Large Square with Trail of Tears and Die Toten Hosen on Friday, August 10th. The album will be released this March via Nuclear Blast and features 13 songs with messages dedicated to the trials of the modern people, supported by their unique instrumental arrangements. The impatient ones can now listen online to Storm the Sorrow, a single take off the bands’ fifth album.
Fans of Delain and Trail of Tears should be aware: they are coming in Romania for the first time this year. The Norwegian Trail of Tears will lead the concerts on Friday, August 10th 2012, while Delain will hit the Large Square stage on Saturday, August 11th. A concert of Dutch band Delain has been a wish expressed by the active members of the ARTmania community. The band’s story began in 2002 when Martijn Westerjolt, ex keyboard player in Within Temptation, along with the charismatic Charlotte Wessels founded Delain and started composing together with other talented musicians, signing in 2005 with RoadRunner Records and beginning to record their first album. Delain will be in Romania for the first time at ARTmania Festival Sibiu 2012, and fans can get ready to listen to new songs. Their third album is already on its way.
The Norwegian band Trail of Tears has been playing since ’94, but has never been to Romania, is spite of its strong fan base. They stated in an interview in 2007 for metalhead.ro that they would really like to play in Romania. With six albums so far and a new one ready to be launched, the artists of Trail of Tears are ready for the meeting in Sibiu’s Large Square in 2012. Trail of Tears have announced late September 2011 that recording for the new album has been finished “We believe that we have created something extraordinary and can’t wait to share it with you all. Never before has a recording process involved so much blood, sweat and tears!” Trail of Tears fans will listen to new song at ARTmania 2012.
Remember that Tuborg is the official beer at the ARTmania Festival since 2010.
