The Golden Stag Festival (Cerbul de Aur in Romanian) is an international pop music festival held in our city. Before the MTV Music Awards were created, an event was needed to inspire local and international musicians to greatness. Thus came the Golden Stag Festival into existence, on of the most inportant European festivals. The main organiser is Televiziunea Romana, Romania’s state-run (and largest) television network. The festival has two main components: an international contest and guest performances by both Romanian and foreign stars. The Golden Stag was first held in 1968.
Well-known artists have performed at the festival over the years, including Gilbert Becaud, Josephine Baker, Toto Cutugno, James Brown, Kenny Rogers, Ray Charles, UB 40, Scorpions, Ricky Martin, Pink, Sheryl Crow and many others. The Stag has also shown a special gift for discovering young singers who eventually become famous; such as Julio Iglesias, whose international debut occurred on the Stag stage, as well as Christina Aguillera, who participated in the contest more than a decade ago.
