Romania (Romanian: România) is a country located in South-East Central Europe, North of the Balkan Peninsula, on the Lower Danube, within and outside the Carpathian arch, bordering on the Black Sea. Almost all of the Danube Delta is located within its territory. It shares a border with Hungary and Serbia to the west, Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova to the northeast, and Bulgaria to the south.
Transylvania (Romanian: Ardeal or Transilvania; Hungarian: Erdély; German: Siebenbürgen) is a historical region in the central part of Romania. Bounded on the east and south by the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended in the west to the Apuseni Mountains; however, the term frequently encompasses not only Transylvania proper, but also the historical regions of Crişana, Maramureş, and (Romanian) Banat.

The open air season is initiated yearly on the 1 may weekend first one to be Transylvania Calling (TC) 2004, a gathering of 600 people & artists from more then 25 nations in Romania, to experience a 5 days “wesak festival” and a full moon eclipse. It was not a commercial or professional event but more like a spontaneous gathering and all artists came and played on their own behalf with no financial intention. There was a sound system and every musician who made it there was free to play. Shortly after first TC the main event promoter dreamtime productions (dmt) was formed by dj Styx who returned home to Romania from his 14 year absence in Germany, India and Australia with the vision to organize and promote TC, Psy-trance art & culture in and from Romania.
The TC 2005 & 2007 moved to the July Full-moons, besides holding numerous outdoor activities dmt kept the tradition to hold yearly on 1 may weekend open air gatherings each with a unique brand, location and concept promoting local and international artists. In 2007 the idea of ecowarriors was implemented in most dmt open air events gaining respect and support from local officials and institutions. You can experience small dmt open air gatherings in remote/beautiful places mostly near Sibiu and the Fagaras Mountains. TC 2007 no doubt has been the most amazing gathering in Romania so far and has the potential to become one of the most wanted festivals to visit for many people around the world, with stunning nature, contemporary art and world-electronic music with around 100 artists from more then 40 countries creating a platform for individual expression for 5 days. More than 1000 participants have experienced Transylvania‘s Calling so far.
During the cold seasons small parties where held in clubs around major Romanian cities organized mostly by the local psy-community with music ranging from chill-out to progressive, full-on to dark-psy. Some important indoor events worth mentioning are Open your Mind, Namaskar and the Atma album release-tour. Open your Mind 3rd round being the biggest so far, this event is hold almost yearly around 11.11 and gathered in 2007 more then 400 people in Sibiu being also the first event with a real chill-out floor and multiple visual art installations. With the occasion of the first Romanian Psy-trance album to be released in 2006 dmt has organized the release-tour in 5 major cities promoting Atma and his Album “Beyond Good and Evil” having 160-260 people in each city. The first monthly psy-trance night, Namaskar was held at the famous ChillOut club in Sibiu and went really well 7 times until the summer break in 2007 with around 200 party-people.
Interesting and exciting things are expected for 2009. Already announced: “dreamforce” hosted by dreamtime (6 March/Whicked Hayo, Highlight Tribe). Divine Moments of Truth near Sibiu (8 May to 10 may/ U-Recken) moved dates in favour of SpaceSheep’s Rebirth Festival (29 April-3 May) for starting the open air season. TC 18-25 august will be the main event this year, everyone is welcome!
