A magnificent edition, on a stage the size of 1000 TV screens
The artists attending Golden Stag 2019, as either competitors or guests, performed on a 800 m2 stage, with 400 m2 of LED screens - the equivalent of 1,000 TV screens – and with more than 50,000 dismountable technical staging items. A classical concept stage that surprised spectators and TV viewers alike. The large scale show, long-awaited by the public, turned the Council Square in Brasov into a prestigious venue, both nationally and internationally.
A complete edition
Golden Stag 2019 was a complete edition, suiting all tastes, and broadcasted live by the Romanian Television between the 22nd and the 25th of August 2019.

The Romanian Television team prepared a format with two days of competition, an Awards Gala and ancillary events. The festival ended with a folkloric show that brought together traditional Romanian folk music and contemporaneous reinterpretations.
