- Why changing the venue?
After the massive support you have shown us for the first edition of SAGA Festival, we have decided to move to a bigger and a more prestigious home where we can RAVE together again. This new venue will offer us the perfect opportunity to build an even bigger SAGA for you in June 2022.
- Why choose National Arena?
National Arena is the biggest festival venue in Romania, and one of the most spectacular stadiums in Europe. Home to some of the most iconic concerts to ever happen in Bucharest, we have decided to take National Arena to the next level, and host SAGA there.
- Where should I book my hotel?
Since it's s so close to the heart of the city, finding accommodation near the new SAGA venue will not be a problem. We will soon announce partnerships with the most important hotels near National Arena, so before booking your accommodation, it would be best to first check out the SAGA Travel Packages.
- Will SAGA Festival only take place inside the Arena?
No! Only the Source Stage will be inside the stadium. This new venue represents more than just the stadium itself; we will have more than 5 stages with different music genres, and many musical surprises and plenty of space around it.
- Will this new venue mean fewer stages?
No, quite the opposite. You will have even more stages where you can RAVE at SAGA 2022.
- Is this venue the final one for SAGA 2022?
Yes! This will definitely become the home of SAGA Festival.
