Bonnie Tyler Stars At St. George Days Festival In Sepsiszentgyörgy, Transylvania


Last week, Saint George Days were held in the ethnic Hungarian-populated town of Sepsiszentgyörgy (Sfântu Gheorghe, Romania). Almost 300 programs were organized within the one-week long festival in the middle of Transylvania.

Éva Sztakics, Vice Mayor of Sepsiszentgyörgy, praised this year’s event because it could fill the 4 times bigger festival places with audience in 2016. On the closing night of the week, circa 40 000 spectators were interested in the star performer Bonnie Tyler and the production Zenevonat (Music Express), put on my members of LGT, a popular Hungarian rock band of the Seventies and Eighties.


They try to keep the 25-year-old principle of the Saint George Days to be a bridge between the Hungarian and the Romanian inhabitants of the town, Ms. Sztakics. Organisers try to keep in mind and take into consideration the needs of the inhabitants first of all, she said.

The majority (77 per cent) of the town’s 54 000 are ethnic Hungarians, while 22 per cent reported to be of Romanian ethnicity in the 2011 census.
