NEVERSEA: The Romanian festival with a devotion to its surroundings
The beach festival is dedicated to supporting local industries
On the shores of the Black Sea, in the heart of Romania’s oldest continuously inhabited city, Constanta, NEVERSEA Festival delivers three days and three nights of musical magic.
From July 4 to 7, Romania’s biggest summer music festival brings together the cream of the crop from house, techno, EDM and bass music. This year’s line-up includes Jamie Jones, Andy C, Tale Of Us, Afrojack, Raresh, Sit andDubfire, which tells you all you need to know about the calibre of artists that play the festival.
Asides from the top international talent booked, NEVERSEA is set aside from other festivals for one reason - its location. Set up around the enchanting beaches of Constanta, this part of the planet is so beautiful even the United Nations formally recognised the nearby Danube Delta, which flows into the heart of the Black Sea itself, as a UNESCO Heritage Site. Festival-goers can also experience the Gorges of Dobrogea that boasts a unique and scenic landscape pockmarked with towers, columns and pyramids.
If you’re looking for some post-party relaxation, the unimaginably varied and stunning village of Vama Veche is only half an hour away from the city. Famous for being a countercultural paradise many people choose to camp on the expansive beaches, rather than stay at the newly-built hotels in an attempt to preserve the natural beauty.
Another thing NEVERSEA prides itself on is its deep connection to the local area and ensuring local industries are financially supported. It’s even done its bit for Romania as a whole by collaborating with Blood Network Campaign. Helping to raise awareness of Romania's low blood transfusion rates and mobilise thousands of young Romanians to donate blood for the first time.
55,000 people, from almost 100 countries, per day are expected to party at NEVERSEA once again, splitting their time between the Main Stage, the pyramid-like spectacle that is the Temple stage, The Ark for all things drum ‘n’ bass and the Daydreaming Experience stage, a sanctuary for all your spiritual needs.
