INTERVAL NATURAL

The second of our 4 Interval event concepts, Natural, is taking place in a unique location that implies instructions.

The venue is ready to host up to 1000 people. You will be able to use the entire courtyard while the old town within the citadel will stay off-limits during the night.

All of last year’s ticket holders for Interval 100 will be automatically emailed a discount code. See you at the party!

Some old-fashioned things like sunshine, fresh air and a Boiler Room session in a medieval Transylvanian fortress are hard to beat. Two full nights of music inside the citadel’s courtyard will help you have your senses put in order.

Big trees grow from good seeds so we have a number of surprises in store in and around the citadel that will stay in Rasnov forever. This is the third most visited historical monument in Romania and we’re the first ones to ever use it from dusk till dawn since it was last inhabited.’

THE CITADEL

Rasnov Citadel (Romanian: Cetatea Rasnov, German: Rosenauer Burg) is a historic monument and landmark in Romania. It is situated in Rasnov, Brasov County, in the immediate vicinity of Brasov. The medieval citadel of today is considered to be built between 1211 and 1225, during the rule of Teutonic Knights.

The citadel was built as part of a defence system for the Transylvanian villages exposed to outside invasions. A decisive aspect for building the citadel on the actual location was the route of the invading armies which were coming from the Bran pass and were passing through Rasnov, on their way to Burzenland. The only chance of survival for the inhabitants of the area, inclusively from Cristian and Ghimbav, was the refuge inside the citadel. Compelled to stay there for decades, the people of Rasnov and the nearby villages turned the fortification into a dwelling.

The Accessories You Will Want at Interval

The Accessories You Will Want at Interval

Interval is a concert that goes beyond all expectations. It is a challenge for musicians who take to the stage because they want to put on a great show, but it is also a challenge for the people who devote themselves to enjoying all that it has to offer. It is a party that is as exciting as any you may have ever attended before. However, because most people who attend want to get the most out of their time at Interval, you should not forget to think hard about the accessories that will make your experience more enjoyable.

Basic Necessities

How much of your time do you hope to spend at Interval? Are you a person who will party hard for a day and then go back to your normal life or do you plan to attend every concert, in every location, for the entire time that it is going on? Either way, there are necessities that you will want to have on hand. Clothing is something that will make things nice when you are out for days. Your clothes should be comfortable enough that you can stand or sit while wearing. They should be wearable both day and night unless you want to spend your time changing clothes. Cologne, perfume, insect repellents, money, a backpack, and all of your personal hygiene items should be within easy reach.

Comfort Items for Yourself

Hammock TentBecause of the fact that people party hard at Interval, there are several things that you may want to take along, especially if you are bringing a tent to avoid motel costs. As everyone who has attended Interval before, the price of motels can put a damper on the party and a tent makes things easier. However, many people choose not to have the tent because they want the modern conveniences of a room. This often means they do not get to enjoy the entire series of concerts. Other people, choose to make do with what they have to avoid the cost. They have tents with solar lights, battery powered radios for when the concert has slowed a little, and generators to keep their phones charged. A lot of them also take along a compact toilet for those times when Nature comes calling them in the great outdoors. The truth is, you can take virtually anything with you on your Interval experience, you simply have to find the products that will help you the most.

Most Important Things

Beyond the accessories you need, there will also be things that you want. Good company will be one of them. No one wants to attend Interval without someone they know well and care about along with them. You may meet thousands of people that you can get to know, but there will be none of them that can make sure you enjoy your time out partying than the people you have known for years. Plan ahead, get your group together, and everyone agree should that Rasnov will be the place where you become better friends.
